    1629This is a tentative agenda, and is expected to change.

    18 === Introductions  ===
     31== Introductions  ==
    1932
    20 === 1)  WiMAX Base Station Installation, Setup and Initial Operation ===
     33 
     34== Deployment Status  (one slide from each campus) ==
    2135
    22 === 2)  Adding OMF/OML Capabilites ===
     36  Columbia University (1770)    PI: Henning Schulzrinne   Sung Hoon Seo and Jan Janak:  [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/ClusterECall022311/columbia_022311.ppt   slides] Waiting for contract approval and installation;  hoping for early March. [[BR]]
     37               
     38  Polytechnic Institute of NYU (1751)   PI: Thanasis Korakis  Thanasis: [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/ClusterECall022311/Poly_WiMAX_Feb_2011.ppt  slides] Installed and using WiMAX RF AggMgr.   [[BR]]
    2339
    24 === 2)  WiMAX Range and Throughput Measurements, and Site Planning ===
     40  UCLA (1797)   PI: Mario Gerla, Giovanni Pau   Giovanni:  Antenna on 10th floor, -5deg tilt;  Windows laptop with USB-connected 6250;  seeing 14Mb/s DL, 1 Mb/s UL;;  connect to vehicle up to 230 m;  done handoff WiMAX to WiFi;  heavy rain doubled delay  (why?) ;  $40k to install link to I2;  isntalled WiMAX RF AggMgr, but not yet in use;  will do range measurements by GEC10.      [[BR]]
    2541
    26 === 3)  WiMAX Mobile Stations (Clients) ===
     42  Colorado: (1768) PI: Dirk Grunwald Univ. of Colorado, Boulder  [[BR]]
    2743
    28 === 4)  Demos/Experiments Planned ===
     44  email from Dirk: We've changed the mounting location because we think the wind profile of the antenna makes the mounting system on top of the other building questionable. We regularly get 40-60mph winds this time of year.[[BR]]

     46  We've already selected the new location. It's one of the two locations where our campus is installing their own WiMAX equipment. There is a spare pole & mount already in place, so that simplifies installation. We have to install the "IDU" in a weatherized metal enclosure. Installation starts next Monday. The parts have been ordered this week & installation is being done by our campus IT group and professional building maintenance people.[[BR]]

    32 NEC Labs America  Sampath Rangarajan [[BR]]
     48  We also have a professional RF propagation survey done from this location. I've attached that as a PPT. This is for the (now) existing WiMAX system our campus has put up. Our antenna will be pointing due north. The existing propagation model doesn't include our system yet, and we're getting that done -- this will provide a model that we will calibrate using the signal analyzer and RF cards.  [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/ClusterECall022311/UoC%20-%20MacroMAXe%20RF%20Plan%20V1.1.pptx  slides] [[BR]]

     87  Range and capacity at BBN  (Harry Mussman, Tony Michel and Tom Cahill)    Process described in [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/ClusterECall022311/022311%20%20BBNWiMAXRangeThroughMeas.ppt  slides], including use of script in mobile station and server behind base station to evaluate connection with ping and iperf.  Latest results  described in [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/ClusterECall022311/022311%20%20BBNWiMAXRangeTroughputMeas.xls  spreadsheet].   Seeing good results to 0.2 mi, but not yet further.  Expect to finish measurements by GEC10, and provide packaged experiment.  Soon, will vary BTS parameters to see if can find a set for greater distances at lower rates.  Do not expect range beyond 0.6mi.
