    1. o push for reforms of the bodies themselves to prevent bloc-voting.

      What is 'block voting'?

    2. While Chinese firms’ participation in international technical standardization should be a welcome development, the way the Chinese government links itwith mercantilist industrial policies is at odds with the purpose and spirit of international standards-setting

      Key issue - how to delink standardisaton from mercantilist industrial policies. It won't be easy.

    3. China is gaining influence in international standards-setting organizations like the International Standards Organization and the International Electrotechnical Commission

      is it true - to be checked?

    1. This article provides a very good and fair coverage of growth of Huawei. A few aspects are crucial:

      • understanding process of development of 5G technology and standards.
      • relevance of Shannon for digital developments
      • new Chines approach to setting digital standards
      • relevance of 3GPP organisation (to follow more carefully on DW)

    2. So they did. The standards committee split the signal-processing standard into two parts. One technology could be used to send the user data. The other would be applied to what was known as the control channel, which manages how that data moves. The first function was assigned to LDPC, and the second to polar codes. It was well into the wee hours when the agreement was finalized.

    1. This is one of the worst articles I have read recently in terms of:

      • defeating interests it wants to protect
      • logical consistency
      • backing claims

      Substantively speaking, China is very active in standardisaiton field. They entered into space openned by Western arguments - for too long - that standards are technical issues without political and other perspectives. Chinese accepted this rule of the game and started sending legions of highly-qualified engineers in standardisation. They prepare proposals. Obviously, they advance their interests and views. They do in transparent and 'scientific' manner by presenting proposal and facts.

      Now, there is - to the large - extend justified concern that standardisation bodies can be hijecked in this way. This article is along these lines 'Chinese are coming into standardisation'. It follows current approach of fear-mongering in the Western academic and policy circles.

      It is very risky approach because it won't stop Chinese influence while it can easily undermine core Western values. Tactical moves could be turned into strategic defeat.

      For Western societies there are three possibilities:

      • to compete with Chinese via expertise, coordinated approach and better proposals (justified with expeeritse)

      • to change the rules of the game with the clear possibility that new rules of the game will be masted by Chinese (and others)

      • to decide to have different games (split digital space in different realms).

    2. two hundred consortia organisations and bodies working on one or more layers of technical communications and networks standards-making, including internet standards, web standards and telecommunications standards (Schneiderman 2015 Schneiderman, Ron. 2015. “International Standards Development Organizations Defined.” In Modern Standardization: Case Studies at the Crossroads of Technology, Economics, and Politics , 1st ed., 253–66. John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. doi:10.1002/9781119043492.oth. [Crossref], [Google Scholar]).

      Let us map them for our standardisation project.

    3. Through standardisation, a technology can become recognised and protected by international institutions such as the United Nations (UN) and World Trade Organization (WTO). Adoption of certain technical standards, particularly if required by national law, can have potentially harmful consequences such as impeding competition by locking consumers into a specific, outdated or substandard technology.

      ||MariliaM|| It will be interesting to bring WTO considerations in our discussion digital standards.

    4. the creation of native technologies which reflect local policies and politics

      It is probably the key dilemma - how 'technologies' reflect local politics. What is 'native' technology? Technology - like science - embodies some falues but it is - in the same time - appliable across political, cultural and social context. Web was invented in the west but used all over the world.

      This linkage culture - technology which is the crux of standardisation needs to be unpacked in more details. Otherwise it will remain 'ideological notion'.

    1. Balanced coverage of China and standardisation with a few highlights:

      • China is late arrival to the international standardisation scene dominated by USA, Europe and Japan
      • in 2015 China made official decision to reduce this gap (||Jovan||||TerezaHorejsova||||NatasaPerucica||||Katarina_An||
    2. n 2015, the State Council highlighted China’s deficiencies in the field and set out to transform the country’s standardization system, seeking to harness the capacity of standard setting

    1. US National Security Agency (NSA) established the Center for Cybersecurity Standards in order to deal with increasing dependence on commercial products to secure National Security Systems.

      The NSA Center for Cybersecurity Standards will focus on:

      • 5G Security
      • Cybersecurity Automation
      • Platform Resilience
      • Cryptographic Algorithms
      • Security Protocols

      Cybersecurity standards will play increasing relevance in digital realm.

    1. The Swiss-based International Organisation for Standardisation held its first meeting on standards for carbon accounting in transactions in November 2022.

      Can we check about this standarsiation as linkage among standards, climate change and digital.
