WiMAX Campus Deployments and Experiments

Friday, November 4, 2011, 1pm - 3pm
Room:
Session Leader: Harry Mussman, (GPO, Raytheon BBN Technologies)

Description

This session will first review the GENI WiMAX strategy, and then concentrate on plans for the new WiMAX site deployments and extensions that will be supported by Solicitation 3 projects. Next, goals for GENI WiMAX experiments will be presented, and finally current and planned experiments will be discussed.

Summary

Agenda

This is a tentative agenda, which may change.

NOTE: We have many topics to cover in a short time. PLEASE bring only the designated number of slides, and provide a link to additional information. THANKS!

1) Introductions

1pm

2) GENI WiMAX Strategy

1:05pm
Harry Mussman (GPO)

3) New (Sol 3) GENI WiMAX Site Deployments and Extensions

1:20pm

3.1) Airspan Profile-C Base Station, with Associated Hardware and Software

1:20pm
Ivan Seskar (WINLAB) and Harry Mussman (GPO)

Airspan/Rutgers will provide a kit including: Airspan MacroMAXe profile-C WiMAX base station unit, for outside mounting

Choice of frequency: (2510 Lo: 2496MHz to 2570MHz)
(2510 Mid: 2560MHz to 2630MHz)
(2510 Hi: 2620MHz to 2690MHz)
(3650: 3650MHz to 3700MHz)]

Sector antenna, with x4 RF jumper cables 2x4 MIMO, supported by base station and antenna GPS antenna, with surge suppressor and cable DC power cable, from base station unit (outside) to testbed (inside) Network management software license, 1 per base station

Campus will need to provide: Pole for mounting DC power supply (-48v, approx 300W) Ethernet cable, from base station unit (outside) to testbed (inside) Windows server to host network management software Linux server to host OMF software Ethernet switches, and other network equipment, for access (configuration to be provided)

Additional kits can be purchased from Airspan

Price is approximately $15,000.

It is expected that additional base stations kits can be purchased by GENI in Spiral 5.

Thus, campus site might be able to add additional sectors, at no cost. Planning for next year will be done later this year.
