This project will extend and enhance the existing MadBed? outdoor WiMAX network testbed, which is supported by a GENI WiMAX deployment project. It will be extended to a total of four WiMAX base stations (four sectors) by adding one Airspan Profile C base station kit (one sector) provided by Rutgers. The mobility API in the existing Mobility Services Engine will be extended to provide access to all the different WiMAX base stations across multiple sites, and thus facilitate experiments that straddle such sites. Supported mobile stations will include both custom-built multi-interface wireless nodes (called WiRover? gateways) mounted on public transit buses in Madison, WI, and programmable WiMAX-capable handsets (e.g., HTC EVO handsets). The enhanced MadBed? testbed will facilitate experimentation across a significant metro area, both for vehicular systems and for end users with programmable handsets.

Spiral 2 Connectivity
Links to wiki pages about details of infrastrcture that the project is using (if any). Examples include IP addresses, hostnames, URLs, DNS servers, local site network maps, VLANIDs (if permanent VLANs are used), pointers to public keys. GPO may do first drafts of any of these and have the PI correct them to bootstrap. May also include ticket links for pending or known connectivity issues. Many projects will have a full tree of wiki pages here.
