    19 11:05am 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]]

    26 This is based on the work in the following projects:[[BR]]
    27 ORBIT (1660)    [[BR]]
    28                 PI: Marco Gruteser WINLAB / Rutgers University[[BR]]
    29                 Max Ott NICTA[[BR]]
    30                 Ivan Seskar WINLAB / Rutgers University[[BR]]
     21        The wiki page for WiMAX integration at http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/WiMAXInteg [[BR]]
     22        And for all projects, I've added a checklist to their page.  And, there is a table summarizing the status of all projects at http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/WiMAXInteg/CampusInstallation#a8.21CampusDeploymentPlan   
     23        Please make any changes or additions to the wiki pages, and forward any comments to the team.

    49 11:20am 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.

    55 A 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.

    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]]
