    38 a)  Airspan/Rutgers will provide a kit including: [[BR]]
     34 
     35a)  Choice of Airspan to provide a WiMAX base station for new GENI WiMAX sites [[BR]]
     36NEC is not able to provide a WiMAX base station for new GENI WiMAX sites [[BR]]
     37WINLAB and the GPO have decided to purchase base stations from Airspan, a commercial company pursuing target customers such as universities and small carriers. [[BR]]
     38For example, the Univ of Colorado at Boulder IT Dept has installed an Airspan system with 4 sectors, that covers the campus.  They have been pleased with Airspan. [[BR]]
     39WINLAB has a frim quote from Airspan for their MacroMAXe profile-C WiMAX base station unit, and related items. [[BR]]

     45b)  Rutgers will provide a kit including: [[BR]]
    3946Airspan MacroMAXe profile-C WiMAX base station unit, for outside mounting[[BR]]
    4047  Choice of frequency:   [[BR]]
     
    4350  (2510 Hi:  2620MHz to 2690MHz)  [[BR]]
    4451  (3650: 3650MHz to 3700MHz)]  [[BR]]
     52
     53NOTE:  WINLAB needs to know frequency choices during November (or early December), so that they can place an order with Airspan for delviery late 2011 or early 2012!
     54
    4555Sector antenna, with x4 RF jumper cables [[BR]]
    46562x4 MIMO, supported by base station and antenna [[BR]]
     
    4959Network management software license, 1 per base station [[BR]]
    5060
    51 b)  Campus will need to provide: [[BR]]

     66c)  Campus will need to provide: [[BR]]
    5267Pole for mounting [[BR]]
    5368DC power supply (-48v, approx 300W) [[BR]]
     
    5772Ethernet switches, and other network equipment, for access (configuration to be provided) [[BR]]       
    5873
    59 c)  Additional kits can be purchased from Airspan [[BR]]
     74d)  Additional kits can be purchased from Airspan [[BR]]
    6075  Price is approximately $15,000. [[BR]]
    6176 
    62 d)  It is expected that additional base stations kits can be purchased by GENI in Spiral 5. [[BR]]
     77e)  It is expected that additional base stations kits will be purchased for some (or all) Sol 3 GENI sites in Spiral 5. [[BR]]
    6378  Thus, campus site might be able to add additional sectors, at no cost. [[BR]]
    6479  Planning for next year will be done later this year. [[BR]]
    6580  Consider including additional sectors within your technical plan right away.   [[BR]]
    6681
    67 e)  Note:  Airspan indicates that they expect to introduce a new base station unit within the next year. [[BR]]
     82f)  Note:  Airspan indicates that they expect to introduce a new base station unit within the next year. [[BR]]
    6883  Somewhat reduced performance/range. [[BR]]
    6984  Approximately half the cost [[BR]]
    7085
    71 f)  Airspan indicates that their sector antenna provides:[[BR]]
     86g)  Airspan indicates that their sector antenna provides:[[BR]]
    7287  A 90degree pattern, which is consistent with proper coverage over a 120degree sector.[[BR]]
    7388  Four internal elements, to support 2x4 MIMO.[[BR]]
    7489  Airspan can provide provide x4 omni-directional antennas, but the cost is much higher, and the range is signifcantly reduced.[[BR]]
    7590
    76 g)  Airspan shows that their profile-C base station unit can be configured to operate without an ASN GW and without a RADIUS (authentication) server.[[BR]]
     91h)  Airspan shows that their profile-C base station unit can be configured to operate without an ASN GW and without a RADIUS (authentication) server.[[BR]]
    7792  In this mode, a list of allowed base stations must be configured into the base station, and groups of these base stations are mapped to a VLAN on the ethernet port.[[BR]]
    7893  This appears to be consistent with the current NEC base station unit operated with the ASN GW/WiMAX RF AggMgr code that has been provided by Rutgers/WINLAB[[BR]]
    79  
    80 h)  Airspan shows that if handover operation is desired, an ASN GW must be provided, plus typically an associated RADIUS (authentication) server.[[BR]]

     95
     96i)  Airspan shows that if handover operation is desired, an ASN GW must be provided, plus typically an associated RADIUS (authentication) server.[[BR]]
    8197  In this case, the base station unit operates with IP at the interface.  [[BR]]
