Embedded Computing Design

We’ve finally made it to the year 2021 and the Embedded Insiders have five predictions for what we may expect in the embedded space this year. Rich kicks things off with a bold prediction: 2021 will NOT be the year of 5G. Do you agree? 

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.

Finally, Perry is joined by Dr. James Edmondson for Tech Market Madness segment that addresses the future of the 5G market. Dr. Edmondson shares insight from the IDTechEx report, "5G Technology, Market and Forecasts 2020-2030" on current 5G deployment challenges, what’s being done to address them, and what he views as the biggest upside for 5G.
