7. WiMAX Client Platform Kit
More and more WiMAX client platforms are being released. For example, the Clearwire website lists a wide range of devices that are currently available, and compatible with WiMAX networks.
WiMAX client platforms typically include devices, driver and management software and ongoing support arrangements.
Rutgers will procure as many WiMAX client platforms as possible, and integrate the most useful ones with the WiMAX Campus Deployment Kit. These will be "certified" for use with the GENI WiMAX campus deployment kit.
Rutgers will deliver a limited number of "certified" WiMAX client platforms to the campus deployment projects.
Issue: Which other campus projects could also evaluate and "certify" clients?
