War at the Edge: Data Exchange, 5G and Winning the Global Stealth War
As the world emerges from the past year’s global pandemic, technology has continued to evolve and accelerate. 5G innovation has also continued to mature and Chinese companies have been active in the development of 5G standards and technology. By making standards submissions and filing patents, these companies have ensured that networks that comply with 3GPP (the industry standards-setting body for 5G) are substantially designed in China. By dominating the standards-setting, the likelihood has increased that countries will build 5G networks shaped primarily by China.

“One of the most important targets we can go after is another nation’s infrastructure, particularly the infrastructure that connects leadership to the military and the people,” said Dr. Robert Spalding, Brig Gen, USAF, Retired. “War can come to us without an airplane, and instead through an email that attacks a centralized hub, impacting the architecture that we have come to depend on, affecting our daily lives. The information on a smartphone is data that can be harvested and ultimately used to influence our decisions, imperceptibly. We must understand and be prepared.”
In our video podcast, we discuss what makes 5G different and why it is not just about a technology. We explore the current barriers to autonomy, where the US stands in the 5G rollout vs. China, China’s edge strategy and how it fits in with their 5G strategy.
Achieving autonomy requires a new and innovative digital infrastructure that will be supported and fulfilled by the launch of the Public Infrastructure Network Node (PINN). PINNs, the first unified open standard to incorporate 5G wireless, edge computing, Radar, Lidar, enhanced GPS, and intelligent transportation systems (ITS) as a single unified system, will become the critical infrastructure required to advance intelligent and autonomous solutions for city resilience. PINN clusters will be deployed within cities, on highways, across military installations, and in rural communities to accelerate the nation’s digital infrastructure buildout.
“Our discussion with Dr. Spalding was insightful and a call to action to ensure 5G roll out is secure and that our individual data sovereignty is protected,” said John Cowan, CEO and Co-founder, EDJX. “EDJX is poised to do its part in leading a frank discussion about the ways our data is being traded and exchanged as well as what we can do to ensure it is protected.”
