5G is 'ready' once you redefine 'ready'... and then redefine 'reality'
Wednesday, 06 March 2019 20:45

But the reality on the ground in Barcelona only emphasised how far away it remains, practically, for most of us. From network deployments to handset readiness, the word that doesn't spring to mind is "imminent". Unless your hobby is testing networking kit, it's not going to be worthy of your attention until the second half of 2020.

This isn't to say

Vodafone said the Huawei ban would require it to rip out a third of its 4G network, costing a huge amount of money, and delaying roll out by years.

The giant operator said it had minimised the risk posed by Chinese operators by buying from a range of providers, and it had not seen evidence justifying interference. Vodafone estimated that 32 per cent of its own 4G base stations are

You won't get Huawei with this, America! Chinese giant sues US government over 'unconstitutional' ban
Thursday, 07 March 2019 14:49

Huawei is suing Uncle Sam to overturn a ban on its communications hardware from US federal government computer networks.

The Chinese networking gear manufacturer claims its banishment is unconstitutional because it was unfairly singled out without a fair trial, and wants the decision reversed.

Specifically, on Wednesday this week, Huawei, as expected , went to the federal district court of Eastern Texas to request a permanent injunction against the ban, and a declaratory judgment that the proscription flouted the Constitution.

The ban was authorized by Section 889 of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act [ PDF ], passed by last
