     210 * Layer 2 handoff
     211  * Minimal:  Mobile node breaks its connection with current WiMAX BS and then establishes connection with the new WiMAX BS  [[BR]]
     212  * Better:  Mobile node needs two interfaces, in the simplest form, one interface always connects to BS1 while the other connects to BS2  [[BR]]
     213  * Need: suggested configurations, estimates of required software and level of effort  [[BR]]
     214

     217  [[BR]]
     218  * Better:  Use open source mobile IP s/w (Transparent Mobile IP [http://sourceforge.net/projects/tmip/ link], and OpenFlow s/w in mobile node to de-encapsulate IP packets  [[BR]]
     219  * Need: suggested configurations, estimates of required software and level of effort  [[BR]]

     226
     227What are next steps?   [[BR]]
     228 * Better define proposed configurations 1) and 2) (due 11/15/12)  [[BR]]

     251  * Act as vehicular mobile station (option:  12v power supply)  [[BR]]
     252
     253  * Currently used by:  Rutgers WINLAB;  NYU Poly;  BBN  [[BR]]
     254
     255 * How can these be provided to sites?  [[BR]]
     256  * One design to serve all needs  [[BR]]
     257  * Approximate cost:  $800 - $1500  [[BR]]
     258
     259What are next steps?   [[BR]]
     260  * Working with other projects, refine design to balance functionality and cost, and decide what nodes are needed at which sites   [[BR]]
     261  * Order parts (due 11/15/12)  [[BR]]

     273  * Many handsets in warehouse, such as HTC Evo 4G;  approx $300 per handset[[BR]]
     274  * Must be unlocked by subcontractor, so can register with GENI network;  need to provide config to subcontractor (done by Ivan)[[BR]]
     275  * Must be sure can download Android apps[[BR]]
     276
     277What are next steps?   [[BR]]
     278 * Working with other projects, establish how many handsets are needed at which sites   [[BR]]
     279 * Consider how to provide handsets to projects no longer supported by the GPO  [[BR]]
     280 * Complete negotiation with Sprint subcontractor (WSA Distributing), and order devices  (due 12/1/12) [[BR]]

    833 === 4.4)  Mobility/handover/multi-homing services  ===
    834 4:25pm  [[BR]]
    835 Parmesh Ramanathan  (Wisconsin)  [[BR]]
    836 
    837  * Projects requiring handover include:  Clemson, Wayne State, Wisconsin and UCLA.    [[BR]]
    838  * Projects that can contribute handover technology include:  Rutgers WINLAB and Wisconsin.  [[BR]]
    839  * Also, commercial handover technology available from Airspan.  (Gregg Tome (Airspan))  [[BR]]

    842 
    843  * Layer 2 handoff
    844   * Minimal:  Mobile node breaks its connection with current WiMAX BS and then establishes connection with the new WiMAX BS  [[BR]]
    845   * Better:  Mobile node needs two interfaces, in the simplest form, one interface always connects to BS1 while the other connects to BS2  [[BR]]
    846   * Need: suggested configurations, estimates of required software and level of effort  [[BR]]
    847 
    848  * Layer 3 handoff
    849   * Minimal:  Controller node re-routes through new BS after IP address re-write, BUT does not allow initiation of incoming connection
    850   [[BR]]
    851   * Better:  Use open source mobile IP s/w (Transparent Mobile IP [http://sourceforge.net/projects/tmip/ link], and OpenFlow s/w in mobile node to de-encapsulate IP packets  [[BR]]
    852   * Need: suggested configurations, estimates of required software and level of effort  [[BR]]
    853 
    854  * Suggested steps:    [[BR]]
    855   1) Yellow mobile nodeode with two interfaces, doing handover between two BS on the same subnet [[BR]]
    856   2) Transparent MobileIP working to implement a baseline Layer 3 handover scheme [[BR]]
    857   3) Support new Layer 3 solutions like Mobility First? [[BR]]
    858   4) Demonstrate heterogeneous network handovers [[BR]]
    859 
    860 What are next steps?   [[BR]]
    861  * Better define proposed configurations 1) and 2) (due 11/15/12)  [[BR]]
    862  * Review with other interested projects  [[BR]]
    863  * Understand proposed Multiple Base-Station Mgmt Srvc and  Data-Path GW Srvc, and how they could be used in the implementation  [[BR]]
    864  * Understand how Yellow Nodes could be used in the implementation  [[BR]]
    865  * Understand how Android handsets could be used in the implementation  [[BR]]
    866  * Consider potential uses of WiScape Measurement Framework  [[BR]]
    867  * With other projects, define a workplan  (due 12/15/12)  [[BR]]

    879 Ivan Seskar  (WINLAB) [[BR]]
    880 
    881  * These are "yellow nodes", introduced in ORBIT testbed [[BR]]
    882 
    883  * Can be used as:   [[BR]]
    884   * General fixed servers  [[BR]]
    885   * Support Multiple Base-Station Mgmt Srvc   [[BR]]
    886   * Support Data-Path GW Srvc  [[BR]]
    887   * Support OMF/OML and Login services  [[BR]]
    888   * Provide WiFi access points  [[BR]]
    889   * Act as fixed "mobile stations"  [[BR]]
    890   * Act as vehicular mobile station (option:  12v power supply)  [[BR]]
    891 
    892   * Currently used by:  Rutgers WINLAB;  NYU Poly;  BBN  [[BR]]
    893 
    894  * How can these be provided to sites?  [[BR]]
    895   * One design to serve all needs  [[BR]]
    896   * Approximate cost:  $800 - $1500  [[BR]]
    897 
    898 What are next steps?   [[BR]]
    899   * Working with other projects, refine design to balance functionality and cost, and decide what nodes are needed at which sites   [[BR]]
    900   * Order parts (due 11/15/12)  [[BR]]
    901   * Assemble and deliver to sites  (due 1/15/13)  [[BR]]
    902   * Can a few of the current yellow nodes be delivered to sites right away with OMF/OML and new WiMAX RF AggMgr?  [[BR]]

    907 Derek Meyer (Univ Wisconsin)[[BR]]
    908 
    909  * Summary of discussions with Sprint about unlocked HTC Evo handset  [[BR]]
    910   * 3-way NDA was signed  [[BR]]
    911   * Sprint has subcontractor who handles such purchases: contact is ? [[BR]]
    912   * Many handsets in warehouse, such as HTC Evo 4G;  approx $300 per handset[[BR]]
    913   * Must be unlocked by subcontractor, so can register with GENI network;  need to provide config to subcontractor (done by Ivan)[[BR]]
    914   * Must be sure can download Android apps[[BR]]
    915 
    916 What are next steps?   [[BR]]
    917  * Working with other projects, establish how many handsets are needed at which sites   [[BR]]
    918  * Consider how to provide handsets to projects no longer supported by the GPO  [[BR]]
    919  * Complete negotiation with Sprint subcontractor (WSA Distributing), and order devices  (due 12/1/12) [[BR]]
    920  * Get and check samples?  [[BR]]
    921  * Verify operation, and loading of apps [[BR]]
    922  * Deliver handsets to other projects  (due 1/15/13)  [[BR]]
    923  * Support use by other projects  [[BR]]
