Huawei Zaps 5G in the Microwave
I would like to see more on Huawei's 5G microwave equipment in the near future. Huawei is increasingly become a leader in 5G with all its partnerships throughout Europe and elsewhere, and I believe the U.S. needs to pay attention or fall behind those countries, especially China.

Re: Millimeter spectrum?
Huawei is definitely trying to spread its 5G standard, but so is every other 5G vendor. I assume that there may be a global standard for 5G (or maybe 6G, whenever it comes), instead of the fragmented 4G standards that exist now. So if there's an "open" standard, there should be less of an economic/security concern than if the 5G standard was owned and controlled by a single company with "Foreign" interests.

Re: Millimeter spectrum?
The WSJ brought up the Huawei question in an article yesterday, Why Washington Is So Obsessed With China's Huawei Among its points was this:

5G is the next-generation mobile-network technology that the industry is preparing to roll out around the world. American officials and some Western telecom companies worry that if China gains widespread 5G before the U.S. does, it could have a head start in technologies that the new networks' speed and capacity are expected to kick-start, like self-driving cars.

Some Washington policy makers and industry executives have suggested a deeper worry that, with Huawei's help, China could displace Silicon Valley as the world's innovation center and lure top engineers there. Another concern: If Huawei extends its lead in the telecom-equipment industry, these officials believe, American wireless carriers might have no choice but to use Huawei gear in the future.

Re: Millimeter spectrum?
@mhhf1ve - I totally agree!  My thinking is not a one-size-fits all but a optional platform for open development that would be selected by developers as to where they expose their ideas in exchange for testing them on a greater platform. 

They will definitely want to keep their proprietary ideas under wraps, but may want new partnerships and/or models for different market channels and applications?

Re: Millimeter spectrum?
I doubt, though, that most of the carriers really *want* to be so open and share spectrum. I think there have been some fights already over whether "unused" spectrum (that some carriers are just sitting on) should be re-auctioned by the FCC. So it's probably too idealistic to think that carriers would play nicely together... unless the FCC somehow forced them to.

Re: Millimeter spectrum?
@mhhf1ve, now that is a winning proposition!  That would encourage innovation and provide an open platform for discovery.  Maybe we need to go back to the basics and remember how innovation is actually developed? 

Note:  We also might like at the public/private benefits in defense, public infrastructure, and commercial?

Re: Millimeter spectrum?
I thought some millimeter spectrum didn't require licensing? I may be wrong, but I think it's possible since millimeter spectrum doesn't have the same characteristics as other broadcast frequencies.

Maybe there should be "open" millimeter spectrum like CB radio to experiment with? That could encourage some wireless innovation.....

Re: Millimeter spectrum?
@mhhf1ve great questions!

Huawei continues to lead the way in applications and use.  I am wondering if the use will further create demand which will then create more commitments to spectrum to be available for use.  In other words, is it a limit in capabilities based on current design?  Or is it a chicken and egg issue?

Millimeter spectrum?
How much millimeter spectrum is available for use, but not used due to licensing/regulations? Is there actually enough spectrum to supply our bandwidth needs for the foreseeable future?

Huawei Zaps 5G
I think that everyone is trying to benefit off of the 5G things Huawei has come up with somewthing different to make them more money then go for it because it seems that it does has a lot to offer.
