    So the battleground has shifted to the central and eastern Europe. The smaller countries in this region supposedly should fall into the line more easily. Despite Huawei made Poland the headquarter of their central and eastern Europe operation and invested a lot in the country, I guess the fear and hated towards Russia and the lure of the US security protection are so much greater. Poland didn't even bother to hide their intention after the authority arrested the Huawei employee in Warsaw for alleged spying activity, the security chief announced the news on Twitter and copied to six US agencies including State, CIA, FBI. They did say it's not against the company but the individual though.

    For Poland's sake, I hope they get the opportunity and privilege to build their proposed billion dollar Fort Trump out of their own pocket, to make all these worthwhile.

    The US vs. Huawei saga continues. Don't underestimate the US government, you never know what the current administration has up sleeve.

    Over the last few days, Norway and Lithuania came out to accuse China of conducting intelligence activities in their respective countries. Lithuania, of all the places? I'm scratching my head. Upon further investigation, it turns out that Lithuania is accusing China of monitoring and keeping watchful eyes on them on potential moves on Taiwan and Tibet -- WTF. As for Norway, there have not been any specifics about the charges, but I suppose since Norway and China had some fallout in the past about Nobel Peace Prize award for the late Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo, maybe China is closely monitoring which Chinese dissident that Norway is going to award the prize again in the near future. Still, one gets the feeling that neither country has done as well a job as Poland.

    With all the Chinese spies running around in Europe, the world is a dangerous place...

    I basically agrees with much of what you'd said. I'll however, like to add two things.
    1st, China is basically being outplayed by the west in propoganda.
    I mean, the west and their mouth piece the MSM keeps on about China spying and therefore China is a bad actor in the world and should act responsibly. A charge seem to have stuck in the minds of the public at large. I mean. Come on, we even have a thread in the SDF about China should act responsible or something.
    The Joe public actually believe this as true. Oh yeah, I suppose the west don't spy on anyone at all because they are such a responsible countries!
    2nd. The west and their laughable nobel prize! Yeah it's not political they keep telling us. Gee, and the Joe public bought that one as well.
    I mean, we even play their tune by calling Liu Xiaobo a "dissident"! We should call him what he is. A convicted criminal. Because the western MSM labeled him as a "dissident " it legitimise his award. It would be difficult if he was labeled a criminal!
    I know, before you all jump at me. He's convicted for subversion of state power. So its political. Hey Saudi anyone!
    In case anyone thinks Saudi is an extreme example. Well I could be arrested in the UK for treason simply by saying something derogatory about the Royal family. Until recently treason in the Uk is still punishable by death! Nobel prize for me then?

    What's with all this one liners? And personal questioning?
    I don't ask you what you do, are you married or how many kids you have.
    Please, Jura. Stay civil!
    FYI. You should've guess what my educational backgrounds are by the stuff I write in this forum. If not, the clue is in my name!
    Have a good day

    How is Jura being uncivil by asking what you teach? You basically self invite the question when you volunteer the information that you are a lecturer. If you think the question is too intrusive then just decline to answer.

    Huawei Launches 5G Multi-mode Chipset and 5G CPE Pro

    [Beijing, January 24, 2019] Huawei officially launched its 5G multi-mode chipset Balong 5000 today – along with the first commercial 5G device powered by it, the Huawei 5G CPE Pro. Together, these two new products provide the world's fastest wireless connections for your smartphone, your home, the office, and on the go.

    Balong 5000 officially unlocks the 5G era. This chipset supports a broad range of 5G products in addition to smartphones, including home broadband devices, vehicle-mounted devices, and 5G modules. It will provide consumers with a brand new 5G experience across multiple scenarios.

    "The Balong 5000 will open up a whole new world to consumers," said the CEO of Huawei's Consumer Business Group, Richard Yu. "It will enable everything to sense, and will provide the high-speed connections needed for pervasive intelligence. Powered by the Balong 5000, the Huawei 5G CPE Pro enables consumers to access networks more freely and enjoy an incredibly fast connected experience. Huawei has an integrated set of capabilities across chips, devices, cloud services, and networks. Building on these strengths, as the leader of the 5G era, we will bring an inspired, intelligent experience to global consumers in every aspect of their lives."

    Huawei launches the world's first single-chip multi-mode modem

    With a small form factor and high degree of integration, Balong 5000 supports 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G on a single chip. It effectively reduces latency and power consumption when exchanging data between different modes, and will significantly enhance user experience in the early stages of commercial 5G deployment. Balong 5000 marks a significant step forward for the Balong series of chipsets.

    Balong 5000 is the first chipset to perform to industry benchmarks for peak 5G download speeds. At Sub-6 GHz (low-frequency bands, the main spectrum used for 5G), Balong 5000 can achieve download speeds up to 4.6 Gbps. On mmWave spectrum (high-frequency bands used as extended spectrum for 5G), Balong 5000 can achieve download speeds up to 6.5 Gbps – 10 times faster than top 4G LTE speeds on the market today.

    Balong 5000 is also the world's first chipset that supports both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) network architectures for 5G. With non-standalone, 5G network architecture is built on top of legacy 4G LTE networks, whereas standalone 5G, as the name implies, will have its own independent architecture. Balong 5000 can flexibly meet different user and carrier requirements for connecting devices throughout different stages of 5G development.

    Balong 5000 is the world's first multi-mode chipset that supports Vehicle to Everything (V2X) communications, providing low-latency and highly reliable solutions for connected vehicles. Huawei's 5G smartphones powered by Balong 5000 will be released at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

    Huawei 5G CPE Pro: Changing user experiences in home broadband networks

    The Huawei 5G CPE Pro achieves a high speed of 3.2 Gbps in live network tests

    Powered by Balong 5000, the Huawei 5G CPE Pro supports both 4G and 5G wireless connections. On a 5G network, a 1-GB HD video clip can be downloaded within three seconds, and 8K video can be streamed smoothly without lag. This sets a new benchmark for home CPEs. In addition to homes, the Huawei 5G CPE Pro can also be used by small and medium-sized enterprises for super-fast broadband access.

    Adopting new Wi-Fi 6 technology, the Huawei 5G CPE Pro delivers speeds of up to 4.8 Gbps. It is the first 5G CPE that supports HUAWEI HiLink protocols, bringing smart homes into the 5G era.

    As a 5G pioneer, Huawei began research and development in 5G as early as 2009, and is currently the industry's only vendor that can provide end-to-end 5G systems. Huawei has more than 5700 engineers dedicated to 5G R&D, including over 500 5G experts. In total, Huawei has established 11 joint innovation centers for 5G solutions worldwide.

    Reading between the lines, more proof that US harassment of Huawei is rooted on her insecurity of loosing control over access to private data. If US is truly interested in protection of private data, there are many ways to work together with Huawei. However, the bigger fear for the US is loosing access to everyone's data.


    https://news.yahoo.com/pompeo-hungary-hoping-woo-orban-away-moscow-112559843.html

    "The United States has also voiced worries over Hungary's growing relationship with China, including an agreement for telecom giant Huawei to develop the country's fifth-generation mobile networks. Washington has been ramping up pressure on Huawei -- with senior executives of the company arrested in US allies Canada and Poland. It warns that China could come to dominate the next wave of technology, with grave repercussions for the protection of individual data and the safety of infrastructure."
