    Earlier this year, Huawei-funded analysis had claimed that the costs for Europe to move away from Huawei were shockingly high, suggesting as much as $62 billion would need to be spent. This $62 billion figure comprised a range of costs that included replacing existing equipment and deploying new 5G equipment. And other industry players claimed this heavily overstated the need to replace legacy technology to deploy new 5G equipment. Even so, it was a number that grabbed the headlines, especially as it also suggested delays of up to 18-months. This difference in methodologies in calculating the likely cost to Europe...

    Homeowners worry about possible health effects If you drive around the Cincinnati area you may have noticed mysterious cylinder-type cell phone towers, that look nothing like any cell tower most of us have seen. Now, a growing number of Tri-Staters are getting worried about these towers, and the 5G signals they believe they will soon be sending out, as part of the nationwide rollout of faster 5G cell service. Michelle Krinsky is a nurse who was out walking near her Cleves home earlier this summer, when she looked up and said, "What's that? You can see it's this ugly menace...

    More Huawei defiance was aimed at U.S. President Trump on Sunday, but this time it was coming from much closer to home. Brad Smith, the President and Chief Legal Officer of America’s own Microsoft has criticized his government’s treatment of the Chinese tech giant—suggesting that the company’s U.S. supply chain restrictions should be revisited. In an interview, Smith suggests that the action taken against Huawei should be revisited, ensuring that anything done has a “sound basis in fact, logic, and the rule of law.” He has seen this first-hand, when Microsoft has itself engaged with the U.S. bodies enforcing the...

    Apple today has confirmed that it will acquire Intel’s smartphone modem business in a transaction valued at $1 billion. The deal is expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2019 and is subject to regulatory approval. Through this acquisition, Apple will beef up its wireless technology patent portfolio to over 17,000 patents. Apple also says that approximately 2,200 Intel employees will join Apple, as will Intel’s equipment and leases that pertain to the smartphone modem business. Apple and Intel have signed an agreement for Apple to acquire the majority of Intel’s smartphone modem business. Approximately 2,200 Intel employees will...

    America is in a high-stakes battle with China over the future of wireless. But sometimes it seems like only Beijing realizes it. Business as usual has ­allowed our wireless-technology industry to atrophy or move overseas, while China presses ahead with an explicit plan to dominate wireless technology and wireless networks worldwide. Our big wireless carriers say there’s nothing to worry about. But their dirty secret is that they are marketing and customer-service outfits, not technology leaders. Asking a carrier to secure the future of wireless technology is like asking a Walgreens employee to invent the next blockbuster drug. Walgreens is...
  • Huawei helped North Korea build wireless network and secretly collected Czech data

    On Monday, The Washington Post reported that, based on sources and documents it had obtained from a former Huawei employee, the company had “secretly helped” Pyongyang build and maintain North Korea’s commercial wireless network. Huawei partnered with Panda International Information Technology, a Chinese state-owned firm, on a number of projects spanning at least eight years, according to The Post’s report. The revelations raise questions about whether Huawei, which has used American technology in its components, violated US export controls to furnish equipment to North Korea, where the isolated regime has faced extensive international sanctions over its nuclear weapons programme and...

    The U.S. military’s Defense Innovation Board warned Congress that China’s fifth generation telecommunications rollout is designed to interfere with U.S. weapons systems. The Congressional Research Service issued a report titled ‘National Security Implications of Fifth Generation (5G) Mobile Technologies’ that highlights China’s incorporating “Low to Mid-Band” electromagnetic spectrum into its 5G wireless networks and technology will directly interfere with the U.S. military systems and secure government communications. Mobile data upgrades are implemented about every 10 years. AT&T and Verizon began rapid deployment of fourth generation long-term evolution (4G LTE) mobile data technology in 2010 that was about 10 times faster...

"We never thought that the U.S.'s determination to attack Huawei would be so strong, so firm," Ren said Monday during a panel discussion at company headquarters in Shenzhen. “…We cannot get components supply, cannot participate in many international organizations, cannot work closely with many universities, cannot use anything with U.S. components, and cannot even establish connection...

    Back during the actual Cold War, President Ronald Reagan famously promoted the idea of building what was called the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), or as it was more commonly known, the “Star Wars missile shield.” The idea was so named because its core idea of using lasers and/or particle beams fired from a massive space-based satellite orbiting the Earth bore more than a passing resemblance to the Death Star from the Star Wars franchise. That Cold War has passed, and for that matter, so has the idea of the SDI, which even at its most concrete, was more a proposal...

    Now, a story in the Sunday Telegraph is just the latest to pose serious questions. The newspaper reports that China has been "rigging" 5G equipment testing to discredit Huawei's rivals, including Nokia and Ericsson. According to government and industry sources, "Beijing is feeding secret details of security vulnerabilities" to the testers to tip the balance in Huawei's favor. The testing encompasses "hacking techniques used to check for weak spots... vulnerabilities discovered by China’s secret state hackers have been passed to the 5G testers to ensure Nokia and Ericsson’s equipment is found to be insecure." Huawei's security issues have always been...

    COMPUTEX 2019, the world’s biggest computer trade show, opened in Taipei with dazzling 5G, AI & IoT, blockchain, and gaming offerings, but little interest in China. Computex, following the launch of 4G/LTE, peaked in 2012 with over 140,000 visitors inundating 1,800 exhibitors in 5,400 booths. The trade show then suffered a six-year decline as customers moved from desktops and laptops, to phablets and high-functioning smartphones. But 2019 boomed to a recovery high -- 1,685 exhibitors in 5,508 booths as China was set to launch the world’s first commercial 5G network in 2020. Although the Peoples’ Republic of China does not...

    China has deployed an unlikely voice in its trade war with the U.S.: Trevor Noah of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. A brief clip from the comedian’s “If You Don’t Know, Now You Know” segment on Chinese equipment maker Huawei’s dominance in next-generation 5G mobile technology ran on state broadcaster CCTV’s national lunchtime news on Monday. It was part of a barrage of stories and commentaries attacking the U.S. stance in the standoff between the world’s two largest economies. Washington says Huawei, the leading supplier of telecom gear and No. 2 smartphone maker, is a security threat and is obliged...

    Brittney Jones is something of a rarity among U.S. smartphone users. She prefers Huawei. She is part of such a small group that the 27-year-old Olympia, Wash., resident says she has never met another Huawei owner, save for the man she bought the handset from for $800 in cash last year after seeing a listing on Craigslist. Jones bought the device because of its superior front-facing camera, perfect for taking selfies, she said. “I didn’t really care what the name was,” said Jones, a student, who researched the phone online. “It’s not fair that we don’t have access to the...

    The leaders of Germany, France and the Netherlands said Thursday that their governments do not plan to follow the lead of the US and ban Chinese telecommunications company Huawei from building up their national 5G high-speed mobile networks. President Donald Trump declared a national emergency for the telecommunications sector on Wednesday, citing “unacceptable risks” from “foreign adversaries” — including from cyberespionage and sabotage. The executive order empowers Washington to ban technology and services, including Huawei, which US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said would be blacklisted as of Friday. The US has urged allied governments to exclude Chinese companies such as...

    US President Trump signed an executive order Wednesday declaring a national emergency, barring the use of telecommunications equipment made by companies deemed a threat to national security… The Executive Order did not name China or Chinese companies specifically. However, separately, and soon after the order was signed, the US Commerce Department did just that. The Commerce Department added Huawei and 70 affiliates to its “Entity List” after it concluded that the Chinese company was engaged in activities “contrary to US national security or foreign policy interests”.

    My grandmother cooked in her kitchen on a wood-burning stove until, at 92 years of age, she passed away. Wood stove technology is not as simple as some people think. We may have to learn it all over again. Here is why: I recently read an online article about something called 5G and became aware that this innovation will potentially enable any large government, our own or our adversaries, to spy, hack, sabotage or otherwise wreak havoc on the entire world infrastructure of communication and security. This is not hyperbole. It is as real as nuclear bombs, and if not...

    President Donald Trump said Friday the United States should not nationalize its 5G network and said private companies should move quickly to deploy the faster next-generation network. “In the United States our approach is private-sector driven and private-sector led. The government doesn’t have to spend lots of money,” Trump said. “Leading through the government, it won’t be nearly as good, nearly as fast.” The White House mulled the idea of nationalizing the 5G network for more than a year. In March Politico reported that Trump’s reelection campaign supported a government role in managing the 5G networks even as White House...

They like to talk a lot, but they don’t want to be held responsible for anything they say, and the fact is that to diminish the attacks on 9/11, the greatest attack ever perpetrated on this country, on our soil from a terrorist organization, is to demean the lives that were lost that day, both among those who were in those buildings and on those planes, and those...
