THE NEXT ERA OF 5G: AUSTIN

Robert Spalding, CEO of SEMPRE, maintained that the connection between 5G and national security is largely an issue of economic opportunity and investing in our national infrastructure. “Unfortunately, we tend to think about what China is doing, not what we should be doing. All of these applications are wonderful, but ultimately they need infrastructure to enable them. And today when infrastructure is built it's single tenant single use, and that's a problem…so what 5G enables is this ability to have multi-tenant multi-use in infrastructure that gets built.”

MWJ: What led you to launch a military-grade, 5G network technology company to combat these types of attacks and help secure America's infrastructure?Robert Spalding: As a career military officer, B-2 pilot and military strategist, I came to the conclusion that our nation's critical infrastructure - our telecommunications and computing networks - has become the key to ensuring the sovereignty and independence of our constitutional republic.
