     460NEC is not able to provide a WiMAX base station for new GENI WiMAX sites [[BR]]
     461WINLAB and the GPO have decided to purchase base stations from Airspan, a commercial company pursuing target customers such as universities and small carriers. [[BR]]
     462For 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]]
     463WINLAB has a frim quote from Airspan for their MacroMAXe profile-C WiMAX base station unit, and related items. [[BR]]

     492DC power supply (-48v, approx 300W) [[BR]]
     493Ethernet cable, from base station unit (outside) to testbed (inside);  consider copper (may be a problem with lightning surge) or fiber (requires MM fiber cable, and fiber interface on switch) [[BR]]

     498d)  Additional kits can be purchased from Airspan [[BR]]
     499  Price is approximately $15,000. [[BR]]
     500 
     501e)  It is expected that additional base stations kits will be purchased for some (or all) Sol 3 GENI sites in Spiral 5. [[BR]]
     502  Thus, campus site might be able to add additional sectors, at no cost. [[BR]]
     503  Planning for next year will be done later this year. [[BR]]
     504  Consider including additional sectors within your technical plan right away.   [[BR]]
     505
     506f)  Note:  Airspan indicates that they expect to introduce a new base station unit within the next year. [[BR]]
     507  Somewhat reduced performance/range. [[BR]]
     508  Approximately half the cost [[BR]]
     509
     510g)  Airspan indicates that their sector antenna provides:[[BR]]
     511  A 90degree pattern, which is consistent with proper coverage over a 120degree sector.[[BR]]
     512  Four internal elements, to support 2x4 MIMO.[[BR]]
     513  Airspan can provide provide x4 omni-directional antennas, but the cost is much higher, and the range is signifcantly reduced.[[BR]]
     514
     515h)  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]]
     516  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]]
     517  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]]

     519
     520i)  Airspan shows that if handover operation is desired, an ASN GW must be provided, plus typically an associated RADIUS (authentication) server.[[BR]]
     521  In this case, the base station unit operates with IP at the interface.  [[BR]]

     556Overview of basic throughput experiment, using bidirectional iperf, both TCP and UDP  [[BR]]
     557  [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/OMFWiMAXExperiments#GENIWiMAXExperimentsUsingOMFOML  Basic throughput experiment using OMF/OML]  [[BR]]
     558
     559The basic throughput experiments we have done utilize iperf, both TCP and UDP. [[BR]]
     560  In iperf, the data is generated in the client, and flows to the server. [[BR]]
     561  We put the client in the Mobile Station, and the server in the Base Station. [[BR]]
     562  We used -d dualtest (bidirectional mode), where test is initiated at the client, data begins to flow to the server, and then a second data flow starts at the server;  at the end of the test, results are available at the client. [[BR]]
     563  Because of this, all tests can be initiated at the Mobile Station, and then results are available there. [[BR]]
     564
     565iperf results in the TCP mode depend upon buffer sizes;  overall delay;  and lost packets.   [[BR]]
     566  Because of wireless propagation conditions, lost packets are common, and slight changes can significantly affect the measured throughput. [[BR]]
     567  Thus, TCP results are highly variable;  we took multiple measurements at each point, and identified the best and worst results. [[BR]]
     568  It would certainly be good to have a better way to evaluate available channel bandwidth. [[BR]]
     569  On the other hand, most apps use TCP and the variable results are typical of how these apps would see the channel. [[BR]]
     570
     571iperf results in the UDP mode, counts  % packets received, for a given (fixed) transmit rate. [[BR]]
     572  If the rate is set below the available bandwidth, typically 100% of the packets are received. [[BR]]
     573  If the rate is set above the available bandwidth, typically % of the packets are received typically equals available bandwidth divided by offered bandwidth, but there is no way to understand how many packets are actually lost. [[BR]]
     574  An extended test that ramped up the offered bandwidth in multiple tests, could actually verify the available bandwidth;  this could then be repeated to see real variations in available bandwidth. [[BR]]
