What’s Wrong With the Clean Network Initiative? China Can’t Join It
Spearheaded by Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, the Clean Network Initiative was launched to little fanfare in early August.
At this stage, it is more rhetorical than real, mostly focused (justifiably) on keeping Huawei out of U.S. and allied 5G networks by cajoling allies to use non-Chinese suppliers as they build out their networks.
What the initiative lacks are the tools to make it a reality.
