WiMAX Aggregate Overview

Aggregate Manager Common Name clemson-wimax
Aggregate Resources A WiMAX aggregate includes three WiMAX Base stations, three dedicated PCs that can load experimenter specified OS images equipped with WiMAX USB dongles and multiple Samsung Galaxy S2 handsets runing Android 4.1. The WiMAX Base stations are also connected to the InstaGENI racks to provide dataplane connectivity.
Typical Experiments WiMAX Aggregates provide a controllable, predictable, and repeatable network environment. Experimenters get dedicated PCs on which they have full "root" access, run available operating systems of their choice, connect nodes to the WiMAX Base station and choose a datapath vlan to send their traffic.
