     1911:05am Update on WiMAX kits:  contents, including clients, and schedule for hardware and software[[BR]]
     20                Ivan Seskar (Rutgers WINLAB) and Sampath Rangarajan (NEC)[[BR]]
     21                Sampath:  Seven base stations were ordered, profile A, and are now expected to arrive (with a high confidence) by mid-May, 2010.  Profile A was choosen to allow the most cutomization.  Later orders will be for Profile C stations.  [[BR]]
     22                Ray:  As these arrive, they will be assembled into kits with software on PCs, and delivered sequentially to campuses.  Goal for 2010:  deliver two kits to two campuses. Goal for 2011:  deliver remaining kits. [[BR]]
     23                Harry:  Who wishes to plase an order for additional base station kits?  BBN Technologies;  University of Wisconsin;  others?  [[BR]]
     24                Ivan:  First clients have arrived:  USB dongles.  [[BR]]
     25
     26This is based on the work in the following projects:[[BR]]

     4411:15am Deployment checklist:  steps, known status [[BR]]
     45                Harry Mussman  (GPO)[[BR]]
     46                Harry:  See [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/WiMAXInteg/CampusInstallation#a8.19CampusInstallationChecklist  list]  [[BR]]
     47               
     48
     4911:20am It is important that everyone: [[BR]]
     50                1)  Apply to the FCC for a license NOW  [[BR]]
     51                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.
     54
     55A review of experience from these projects, and suggestions for others:[[BR]]
     56                BBN Technologies (pending)      Tony Michel [[BR]]
     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.
     58       
     59               
     60                Rutgers WINLAB  (done)          Ivan Seskar  [[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]]
     62                You should check online for response from FCC, since paperwork comes much later.  [[BR]]
     63
     64                NEC Laboratories America (done)         Sampath Rangarajan [[BR]]
     65                Sampath:  You should be sure to include "GENI MiMAX Meso-Scale Project Overview" to alert FCC to government contract form NSF.  [[BR]]
     66               
     67                UMass Amherst   (pending)       Mark Corner and Brian Lynn[[BR]]
