    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)

    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).

    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||

    1. Article argues a few points:

      • multistakeholder approach is part of the US hegemonic digital policy.
      • US as digital hegemon can change rules of digital governance as it started doing with Tik-Tok, WeChat and Huawei.
      • By banning Chinese companies, USA is creating splinternet where the USA may have more power but in the less policy space.
      • By exercising its power in this way, the USA is undermining its hegemonic power.
      • The highest power is based on interdependence and central position in interdependent policy space as the USA had for long time.

    1. systems in one country that are incompatible with those in another, reducing the smooth flow of information and knowledge across borders, reinforcing and accelerating the breakdown of global commerce and progress.

      not sure it is the case since all operators manufacture equipment according to the common standards.

    2. They scored one such victory last month, when Singapore - a small trade-dependent Asian nation with deep economic, political and cultural ties to China - announced that it would choose the two European firms for its 5G network over Huawei.

      ?Q Whom Singapore has choosen for supplier of 5G equipment?

    3. The winners of such a diversification could be Finland's Nokia and Sweden's Ericsson, direct competitors to Huawei.

      ?Q Who are the winners in Huawei controversy?

    1. An interesting coverage with anti-China tilt but realistic summary of the situation. It clearly shows that the next digital between China and USA will be happening in Europe and 'swing countries' (India, Indonesia, etc.). It will be interesting to monitor situation in Africa and Latin America. One of the main indicators will be:

      • number of Huawei contracts
      • use of Chinese apps such as TikTok
      • penetration of Alibaba e-commerce business
    2. the Czech Republic, Poland and Estonia

      ||VladaR||||AndrijanaG|| Do we follow national reactions to 'Huawei' challenge? It could be an interesting monitoring (map).

      Any info if the Czech Republic, Poland and Estonia introduced national 'Huawei' law or it is government decision?

    1. This is a discussion paper as a response to the call for comments on another paper, titled as An Analysis of the “New IP” Proposal to the ITU-T, posted in the Internet Society’s website that intends to represent the ISOC’s opinion and position. My hope is that this paper will also be posted in the ISOC’s same place so that the community easily gets a full knowledge of the topic and knows the complete story from the both sides to make their own judgement on the topic. Comments are welcome, please email those to internet.evolution101@gmail.com.

      New IP or 'Huawei' proposal is gaining momentum. Here is one in-depth analysis.
