Power Maps

By identifying key players, quantifying relative influence, and assessing the competitive landscape, FP Analytics breaks down complex foreign policy issues by mapping out spheres of influence and the risks and opportunities these topics present for Insiders.

Global Data Governance

In FP Analytics’ previous Power Map, 5G Explained, we detailed the complex physical infrastructure necessary to create 5G networks and broke down the issues surrounding the control of that infrastructure, setting of international standards, bandwidth ownership, and security. In Part I of this series, we examine the emerging regulatory challenges surrounding governance of the data and information that flows through not only 5G networks, but digital infrastructure globally. While 5G networks will be vast, they represent a mere fraction of the interconnected digital networks that comprise the global Internet. As the Internet serves as the circulatory system for digital connectivity, data is its lifeblood. Rapidly developing regulations are shaping how data is allowed to move throughout the global system, having immense consequences for governments, companies, and individuals. Read FP Analytics' latest Power Map to find out how.

5G Explained

The discussion surrounding the ongoing development of the fifth generation of cellular networks, or “5G,” has invoked intense anticipation, deep-seated fear, and general confusion. 5G has the power to be a transformative technology, but it is widely misunderstood. Barclays’ polling found that only 28 percent of businesses know what 5G is and what it could do. This gap creates a competitive advantage for companies that are better able to understand 5G and craft effective 5G strategies. In our 5G series, FP Analytics analyzes three distinct aspects of 5G: Technology and Infrastructure, The Global Competitive Landscape, and National Security, which are essential to fully understanding the evolving industry and the range of commercial and geopolitical implications.
