BALANCING THE PROMISE AND THE PERIL OF 5G: THE STATE OF PLAY IN THE UNITED STATES  By Melissa K. Griffith et al.

When you inquire into the current United States (U.S.) national security landscape for the fifth generation (5G) of cellular networks, a common story frequently emerges: 5G will power the fourth industrial revolution. Therefore, as a matter of national security, we cannot allow untrusted vendors (often used as a proxy for Chinese companies like Huawei and ZTE) to dominate or play a significant role within this critical infrastructure. And yet, concerningly, the U.S. is currently engaged ...Read more >

HEALTH IMPACT OF 5G  By Dr Fiorella Belpoggi

Recent decades have seen an unparalleled development of technologies known as information and communications technologies (ICT), which include wireless communication used for mobile telephones and, for example, Wi-Fi using radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields (EMF). The first generation of handheld mobile phones was available in the late 1980s. Subsequently, the second (2G), third (3G) and fourth (4G, long-term evolution = LTE) generations dramatically increased their penetration ...Read more >

FIFTH-GENERATION (5G) TELECOMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGIES: ISSUES FOR CONGRESS  By Jill C. Gallagher, Michael E. DeVine

Since the first mobile phones were made available in the 1980s, telecommunication providers have been investing in mobile networks to expand coverage, improve services, and attract more users. First-generation networks supported mobile voice calls but were limited in coverage and capacity. To address those limitations, providers developed and deployed second-generation (2G) mobile networks, then third-generation (3G), and fourth-generation (4G) networks. Each generation offered improved ...Read more >
