On May 16th, the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Communications and Technology held a hearing titled Telecommunications, Global Competitiveness, and National Security. The hearing focused on balancing concerns relating to the expansion of wireless broadband, vulnerabilities within the telecommunications supply chain, inherent threats to national security, and how to ensure competitiveness in the market.
Sicuro Innovations submitted a letter for the record to Chairman Blackburn and Ranking Member Doyle voicing concern about how vulnerabilities within the telecommunications supply chain directly threaten national security and the need for oversight to ensure small business will play a role in growing the Internet of Things (IoT) market as the wireless market adopts 5G.
Sicuro thanks the Chairman and Ranking Member for facilitating this conversation on telecommunications, competitiveness, and national security to ensure the Congress plays an active role in establishing appropriate oversight that promotes competition and security in our nation’s telecommunications technology. We also applaud the Energy and Commerce Committee for tackling an issue much larger than spectrum allocation alone, by examining the tough questions that will shape the future and role that small businesses play in innovation, connectivity, and America’s future.
