5G is more than just better data rates

By Sean Kelley – August 5, 2020

On this edition of Cyber Chat, host Sean Kelley sits down with Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) to discuss the rollout of 5G Technologies, the implications of the technology and what that means for cyber security.

Mike Rogers is the former Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and now serves as the Chairman of 5G Action Now. In Congress, Chairman Rogers oversaw the Intelligence Community’s $70 billion budget that funded the nation’s 17 intelligence agencies. Before being elected to represent Michigan in the House of Representatives, he was an FBI special agent and member of the U.S. Army. Today, he hosts the CNN originals series Declassified, regularly appears on various TV and radio shows, and frequently contributes to major print outlets. Congressman Rogers is also a Senior Fellow at Harvard University’s Belfer Center where he is leading a program on 5G, national security and intelligence policy.

When asked about all the fuss about 5G Networks, the Congressman said 5G will fundamentally change our relationship with the internet, but he also admitted that the full impact of 5G is not fully understood. He also shared that we are “still trying to figure out all of these in terms of the internet of things, all of these devices that are going to make better, faster, quicker decisions, more productivity safer.” He further explained that the volume of data that 5G will be able to move is also critically important. The Congressman said “it really is kind of mind blowing how the efficiency and productivity is going to happen because of greater speeds, less latency.”
