On June 17:

Campus Who Site planning Range and throughput measurements Local experiments Experimenter support Comments
Columbia University Jan Janak Tall building, urban setting; have had to move site - - - -
Polytechnic Institute of NYU Thanasis Korakis Tall building, urban setting Completed, up to 12Mbps DL, much less UL; many variations ParkNet completed for GEC9; two more being planned - -
University of California, Los Angeles Giovanni Pau Tall building, urban setting Completed, up to 14Mbps DL and 2 - 3 Mb/s UL; connections to 300M (0.xmi) Handover WiMAX to WiFi completed - -
University of Colorado, Boulder Dirk Grunwald ? story building, campus setting - - - Studying U Colorado private network, built by Airspan; starting data modeling using Anritsu MS2721B with WiMAX demodulator; acquiring propagation based model from Airspan deployment
University of Massachusetts Brian Lynn Both omni and sector antennas planned for top of 17-story building; prelim shading analysis completed; expect shading near building, but CS building not in shadow, approx 0.5 mi away - - - Would like coverage to busses in downtown Amherst, 1 mi away; can this be done?
University of Wisconsin, Madison Derek Meyer 150 ft high, campus setting Seen connectivity up to 300 yd - - Existing Cisco system: Connectivity to buses, equipped with large client antenna, up to 500M, for coverage over 1.25 sq mi.
BBN Technologies Manu Gosain 90 ft high, urban/suburban setting Good throughput (up to 14Mb/s DL and 1 - 2 Mb/s UL) to 0.25 mi, but not yet further Range and throughput, with scripts For MIT and possibly Clemson -
Rutgers University Ivan Seskar 1 story building, suburban setting RSSI measurements completed ParkNet Possibly Clemson When will install be completed on Busch campus?

Spiral 3 Roadmap: Next Steps

4:55pm

This roadmap shows the original and *current goals that apply to the GENI WiMAX projects:

1) Install and bring up WiMAX base station kit, including the ASN Gateway. (GEC10, or earlier) ALL COMPLETED

2) Evaluate range and thoughput of WiMAX base station kit and Linux PC with Intel WiMAX modem card and/or mobile station used for for experiments. (GEC10, or earlier) (GEC11) FIRST RESULTS NOW

3) Install and bring up an instance of OMF/OML. (GEC10, or earlier) (*GEC12) (except UMass)

4) Operate and maintain the WiMax BS and the related GENI controller, using ORBIT Management Framework (OMF), with support for remote access by GENI users. (GEC11) (*GEC12) (except UMass)

5) Present a mobility demo using WiMAX base station node, including the ASN Gateway, a Linux PC with Intel WiMAX modem card, or the dual-mode vehicular nodes, supporting both WiFi and WiMAX, required for your experiments, and a local instance of OMF/OML. (GEC10) (*GEC12)
