Later, James Kimery, Vice President of Product Management at Spirent Communications, joins Brandon to discuss how research wireless research he was part of back in 2010 is finally coming to fruition with the dawn of 5G, and how industry initiatives like the Open Radio Access Network (ORAN) Alliance are working to prove Rich wrong. Here, James details the progress and adoption of ORAN, some tips and tricks for 5G network infrastructure and device developers, and thoughts on the role of testing in this brave new world of wireless.
