Promoting 5G and Future Technology Development by Supporting Global Standards

This NSI Law and Policy Paper


1. Describes domestic and global standards work that has been critical to decades of global interoperability and is building the foundation for 5G and future technology.


2. Identifies where policymakers should be more cautious when supporting increased government influence in global standards work.


3. Argues that the United States should support and expand private participation in key global standards bodies, but not insert the government as a gatekeeper or in a directive role.


4. Proposes actionable recommendations that can help U.S. policymakers develop sensible policy that supports — rather than undermines — global standards work.
