axial, R.I.P.
--
Dear Fellow Forum Members,

It is with deep sorrow and a heavy heart that I must inform you of the passing of Jim Kayne, a.k.a. axial, a longtime forum member and, for a while, one of the board's most active participants. Jim died on July 8th from a heart attack while doing some renovations.

I learned of Jim's passing while cruising the Cook Report on Internet Economics mailing list several weeks after its posting, where a lifelong friend of his, after gaining access to his pc and files, sent out notices to apparent friends and colleagues.

I'll be obtaining additional contact information over the next several days, which I'll make available via PM to interested members who contact me with a request. Or, you can simply PM me and leave your email address if you prefer.

Sincerely,
Frank A. Coluccio

Huawei Has a Plan to Help End Its War With Trump During a rare interview, the company’s chief executive proposed negotiations with the Justice Department.

By Thomas L. Friedman Opinion Columnist Sept. 10, 2019


nytimes.com After a week of interviews in Beijing, Shenzhen and Hong Kong, I’ve come away with some strong feelings about the United States-China trade dispute. There are two battlefronts: One is the negotiation to eliminate the barriers to American companies competing in China, and the other is what to do about Huawei, China’s enormous telecom networking company that Beijing sees as a crown jewel of national innovation and the Trump team sees as a giant global espionage device.

<> That is why I was happy to accept the invitation of Huawei’s founder and chief executive, Ren Zhengfei, to come to his company’s headquarters in Shenzhen for a rare interview, which he used to — for the first time — propose negotiations with the Justice Department to try to resolve all the outstanding issues between Washington and Huawei.

<> Ren told me: “If the U.S. reaches out to us in good faith and promises to change their irrational approach to Huawei, then we are open to a dialogue. The U.S. shouldn’t try to destroy Huawei over something trivial. If the U.S. feels we have done something wrong, then we can discuss it in good faith and find a reasonable solution. I think we can accept that approach."

He added for emphasis, “There are no restrictions on what we would be willing to discuss with the Department of Justice.”

And if the United States — which has no indigenous 5G networking manufacturer — still does not trust Huawei to install its equipment across America at scale, added Ren, then he is also ready, for the first time, to license the entire Huawei 5G platform to any American company that wants to manufacturer it and install it and operate it, completely independent of Huawei.

Cisco has a common hardware group developing ASICs for all products, meaning

CiscoOne management and processing will be across most wireless and wire access technologies

e.g., common random MAC address processing, common multicast forwarding, etc.

Most switching products do not understand or manage wireless the same way they manage wired.

The significance is to organizations with a lot of wireless connectivity.
