January 2nd, 2018 by Sam Cobley

There are lots of great wireless professionals and thought leaders on Twitter that regularly share thought provoking, educational, and sometimes downright hilarious content.

Senior Vice President at Ekahau and all round good guy, Jussi seems to be on a never ending quest for wireless knowledge. Look out for him at a wireless conference near you.
