    191911:05am Update on WiMAX kits:  contents, including clients, and schedule for hardware and software[[BR]]
    2020                Ivan Seskar (Rutgers WINLAB) and Sampath Rangarajan (NEC)[[BR]]
    21                 Seven base stations were ordered, profile A, and are now expected to arrive (with a high confidence) by mid-May, 2010.  Profile A were choosen to allow the most cutomization.  Later orders will be for Profile C stations.  [[BR]]
    22                 As these arrive, they will be assembled int kits with software on PCs, and delivered sequentially to cmapuses.  Goal for 2010:  deliver two kits to two campuses. Goal for 2011:  deliver remaining kits. [[BR]]
    23                 Who wishes to plase an order for additiuonal base station kits?  BBN technologies;  University of Wisconsin;  others?  [[BR]]
    24                 First clients have arrived:  USB dongles.  [[BR]]

    444411:15am Deployment checklist:  steps, known status [[BR]]
    4545                Harry Mussman  (GPO)[[BR]]
     46                Harry:  See [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/WiMAXInteg/CampusInstallation#a8.19CampusInstallationChecklist  list]  [[BR]]

    4950                1)  Apply to the FCC for a license NOW  [[BR]]
    5051                2)  Do a site survey to find a place for your antenna and your testbed equipment  NOW[[BR]]
     52               
     53                Harry:  A campus must have received an FCC license and completed its site survey, before it can receive a kit.  It is important that everyone apply for a license now.

    5255A review of experience from these projects, and suggestions for others:[[BR]]
    5356                BBN Technologies (pending)      Tony Michele [[BR]]
    54                 Reviewed his surevey and application process using [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/WIMXBBN/020810%20%20license-HOWTO.pdf  slides].  Applied for two experimental licenses;  both are now pending;  waiting for response from FCC.
     57                Tony:  completed survey and application process, per: [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/WIMXBBN/020810%20%20license-HOWTO.pdf  slides].  Applied for two experimental licenses;  both are now pending;  waiting for response from FCC.  If and when received, good for 2 years;  then, will need to reapply.

    5760                Rutgers WINLAB  (done)          Ivan Seskar  [[BR]]
    58                 You can specify up to three campus locations in an application, and can then decide on using one, two or even three later.  [[BR]]
     61                Ivan:  You can specify up to three campus locations in an application, and can then decide on using one, two or even three later.  [[BR]]
    5962                You should check online for response from FCC, since paperwork comes much later.  [[BR]]
