In this talk, I will reflect on the limited role that experimental studies from the research community have played in the evolution of mobile networks. I will use efficient use of available spectrum as an example to illustrate this point. Then I will present the OpenAirInterface (OAI) platform created by Eurecom as a vehicle for changing the status quo. I will finally outline a few emerging research directions towards 5G and how they can benefit from prototyping and experimentation with an open and flexible platform like OAI.
