Why US and Google reject Huawei ? I would say only ten percent understand what is a deliverable 5G network. General public sees a mixed hodgepodge of preconceived ideas that China is a dark communist enclave, no idea what it is a 5G cell phone or the complexities of operating over existing standards. They think in terms of clouds and not networks or in terms of technology not business. Huawei is suspected of providing espionage services to the Chinese government in the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan, New Zealand and a number of other countries. Not proven convincingly On social networks we can read what is like working for Huawei "An utter trash of a company in terms of labor management." Latest news But before end of the year 2019, president Trump and President Xi Jinping will meet to sign a trade deal Huawei Technologies founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei on Wednesday suggested U.S. President Donald Trump meet him in China, striking a bullish tone in the face of American pressure on the Chinese group's global expansion. A new draft German network security rules have just opened the door to Huawei, sparking an outcry. Huawei Technologies Co. will help develop Hungary’s fifth-generation mobile network, as Prime Minister Viktor Orban defied efforts by President Donald Trump’s administration to quarantine the telecom giant on national security grounds. Huawei will work with Vodafone Group Plc and Deutsche Telekom AG to build the ultra fast wireless infrastructure, Huawei is the world's largest supplier of telecom equipment. It seems like the company is planning to dominate the network industry for a long time. Yang Chaobin, president of Huawei's 5G product line, says a proof of concept/pilot program of 5G networks should hit major cities by 2019. "To handle 5G networks, a city needs to have more than 100 base stations,"If you ask me which country will have thousands of base stations first, it'll be China."  Huawei spent 15 billions in 5G research last year alone  The budgets for development over the last four years  are ranked #2, in the world While Verizon and other operators for 5G have a few cities implementation, Huawei plans 170 cities in China alone. Their revenue growth is spectacular There no other telecom company in the world that offers 5G equipment, logistic and operation at the same level of competitiveness. Huawei licensing will create world wide compatibility . There will be a collaboration. Edge Computing? The universe as we know it stretches 93 billion light-years across. and contains two trillion galaxies Are any other civilizations ? No one proved not,  and no one discovered or knows the universe edge I came to learn about edge computing in a cloud environment and ask myself where is the edge. A 5G network will erase the need to bother. The entire fabric, in theory, will be like an ubiquitous edge.

At MobiledgeX they hired me as a consultant for a few weeks to invent the capabilities of Edge Computing just like a mental exercise At that time, 5G was a separate element in their strategy. Because no one was sure where Edge computing starts and where it ends, I did not have a clue and the entire company was waiting for  directions from their thought leaders. I see my job as a blogger and content provider to make people understand what they buy and why. Social science and humanities majors earn less in their first job, but catch up over time. Technical skills can become obsolete quickly, while critical thinking, communication, and collaboration skills become more valuable. What is 5G 5G is the fifth generation of mobile networks  Compared to most of today’s networks (which primarily use 4G and 3G technology), 5G is set to be far faster and more reliable, with greater capacity and lower response times. 5G is unlikely to be defined by any single form of technology. It’s often referred to as "the network of networks" for the way it will bind together multiple existing and future standards, including current advanced LTE (4G) networks. 5G is set to open up a whole new set of use cases such as: superfast 5G broadband with no need for landlines, super smart factories, car to car and car to infrastructure communication, driverless cars, holographic technology, the arrival of 5G phones, 5G sim only and devices such as 5G TVs, and remote/ distance health care for patients. If I want to buy 5G, where do I go? Say I will buy - if available in my area - Verizon home 5G. I has a window antenna and a router made by Verizon. Other companies may offer their versions of 5G totally incompatible to Verizon. So we call 5G different animals. AI and VR with 5G Every commercial for VR headsets,wants you to believe that putting on the device is to step into a truly immersive experience, except no, the pixels are clearly visible, there’s a bit of lag, and the headsets are not comfortable to wear more than 15 to 20 minutes at a time. AI?  Bixby, Siri, Google Assistant, Cortana are hardly as smart as its respective tech CEOs claim to be, and Google’s self-driving cars seem to have gotten into quite a few accidents already. “Virtual reality, in order to achieve the true immersion needs several hundred gigabits of data, which 4G cannot do wireless right now,” says Qiu Heng, Huawei's president of wireless marketing operations. "More importantly, the latency for self-driving cars right now is around the 50 millisecond range. That's also not enough."  The collaboration? DT, Niantic, MobiledgeX & Samsung Demo Edge Multi-Gamer Experience  The collaboration is enabled using MobiledgeX’s recently announced MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud R1.0 product. Key features include device and platform-independent SDKs, a Distributed Matching Engine (DME) and a fully multi-tenant control plane that supports zero-touch provisioning of edge cloud resources as close as possible to the users. Immediate examples of what this enables include performance boosts for Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality (MR) experiences as well as video and image processing that meets local privacy regulations.  I am asking myself , how this will work in absence of a compatible 5G network? And if we create a mesh of high speed interconnection, the edge computer become the entire cloud and main sensory benefit is speed Network type Average download speeds Max download speeds Time to download a full HD film 3G 8Mbps 384Kbps Over a day 4G 32.5Mbps 100Mbps Over 7 minutes 4G+ 42Mbps 300Mbps 2.5 minutes 5G 130Mbps-240Mbps 1-10Gbps (theoretical) 4-40 seconds Huawei 5G This is perceived  as the best in the world, but the politics stopped Huawei to expand in North America and Europe. This will be the subject of a follow up blog from me

We watch soccer. We often see the players - in a game that it is a religion-like already - making the sign of the christian cross. The Muslim players prostrate in front of the Heaven to the One who made possible the goal Soccer seems very rational. We think the good team always wins. But like life itself, we should believe in miracles. Rejected by Chelsea, Mo Sallah saw the end of his dream. He went on loan to Fiorentina, then Roma and finally Liverpool where his career was redeemed In the new culture of business startups, like soccer, there is a new religion where the position of God is vacant. Even more than soccer. So we have to borrow him from our ingrained traditions. Shall we invoke God in Business? Yes, we should, even we do it when no one sees us, as Harvard or Stanford or as highly regarded doctors This story appeared in Sacramento Bee, May 28, 2019 A twelve people physician private clinic in Paradise, California is completely destroyed in the deadliest fire on record. The homes of the 75% of the staff were burned to ashes, the clinic would not have resurfaced to life , if it had not been  ... for an extraordinary "God thing" that the doctor owner firmly believes was an answer to prayer The agony of driving out of town, on bumper to bumper traffic and gas stations with no electricity, while their homes were still burning is nothing compared to the sense of irreversible loss' Yes, the paradise clinic seemed lost forever. But an unexpected visit by the CEO of Blue Cross gave the Medical Group a gift (not a loan) of two million dollars with no strings attached. Adventist Health also offered a donation with no-strings-attached, so the payroll was covered ninety percent. It felt as lottery win The key moment is when Paradise Medical Group started a more modern facility with a stability to think beyond the two or three weeks ahead. The question is how we can make the best presence in both Chico and Paradise - the  cities are fifteen miles apart Here is the current website  Doctors praying The doctors are praying too. Rabbi Nachman of Breslov says When a person is sick, a monetary redemption is a pre-requisite of any cure. Only after the redemption has been made does the Torah give the doctor permission to cure. The ransom of a soul, is rooted in a kabbalistic worldview. As its name suggests, the custom parallels pidyon hashvuyim, the ransoming of captives. As Jews must ransom fellow Jews who have fallen into captivity, so we sometimes feel that we must ransom our souls, when we feel that they are held captive by misfortune. How to bring God on our side From an older paper by John Butnam from HBS What is my purpose? The more you want to help others, the greater the influence you will have. Tell a story on how you use your idea. A story people love and stirs sentiments How can people put my idea into practice?  The more people use an idea, the more they will believe in it.  All the most successful idea entrepreneurs stand on the shoulders of giants, and usually say so. In fact, it’s important you don’t try to own your idea. When you give as much of it away as you can, people will be more — not less — likely to credit you.
