PI: Dipankar Raychaudhuri WINLAB, Rutgers University
Sampath Rangarajan NEC Laboratories America
Ivan Seskar WINLAB / Rutgers University
Columbia University (1770) PI: Henning Schulzrinne

11:05am Update on WiMAX kits: contents, including clients, and schedule for hardware and software

Ivan Seskar (Rutgers WINLAB) and Sampath Rangarajan (NEC)
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.
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.
Who wishes to plase an order for additiuonal base station kits? BBN technologies; University of Wisconsin; others?
First clients have arrived: USB dongles.

This is based on the work in the following projects:
ORBIT (1660)

PI: Marco Gruteser WINLAB / Rutgers University
Max Ott NICTA
Ivan Seskar WINLAB / Rutgers University

WiMAX D&P (1657)

PI: Dipankar Raychaudhuri WINLAB, Rutgers University
Sampath Rangarajan NEC Laboratories America
Ivan Seskar WINLAB / Rutgers University

WiMAX Kit (1793)

PI: Dipankar Raychaudhuri WINLAB, Rutgers University
Sampath Rangarajan NEC Laboratories America
Ivan Seskar WINLAB / Rutgers University

11:15am Deployment checklist: steps, known status

Harry Mussman (GPO)

11:20am It is important that everyone:

1) Apply to the FCC for a license NOW
2) Do a site survey to find a place for your antenna and your testbed equipment NOW

A review of experience from these projects, and suggestions for others:

BBN Technologies (pending) Tony Michele
Reviewed his surevey and application process using slides. Applied for two experimental licenses; both are now pending; waiting for response from FCC.

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

NEC Laboratories America (done) Sampath Rangarajan
You should be sure to include "GENI Meso-Scale Project Overview" to alert FCC to government contract form NSF.

UMass Amherst (pending) Mark Corner and Brian Lynn
See below.

11:40am: Status and plans of all seven GENI WiMAX meso-scale campus deployment projects:

Columbia University (1770) PI: Henning Schulzrinne
Polytechnic Institute of NYU (1751) PI: Thanasis Korakis
UCLA (1797) PI: Mario Gerla, Giovanni Pau
Wisconsin (1724) PI: Suman Banerjee
UMass Amherst (1731) PI: Mark Corner, Brian Lynn
Colorado: (1768) PI: Dirk Grunwald Univ. of Colorado, Boulder
BBN Technologies, Cambridge MA Tony Michel is our radio expert; Chaos Golubitsky is responsible for our testbed.
