    166170  * Must be unlocked by Sprint, so can register with GENI network  [BR]]
    167171  * Perhaps:  500 handsets, purchased by Rutgers WINLAB, approx $500 per handset, and distributed to sites  [[BR]]

     176  * Need to poll sites for interest   [[BR]]
     177
     178 * Comments from Matt Sanders (Georgia Tech), who attended the WiMAX meeting  [[BR]]
     179  * Along with other jobs, he reports to the CTO, and is campus wireless services manager.    [[BR]]
     180  * He has extensive experience negotiating with carriers (and I believe Sprint).  [[BR]]
     181  * We talked for some time, and he agreed to advise us as we continue our discussions with Sprint.  [[BR]] 
     182
     183 * His comments:  [[BR]]
     184  * 1)  Sprint has multiple approaches to dealing with “enterprise customers”.  One approach we might consider, for 3G/4G service: “Access Point Node”  (APN), where designated mobile stations (typically associated with an enterprise) are assigned certain IP addresses, so that their traffic can be routed directly to the enterprise. (This is likely to be in a different business unit that the MVNO approach)  [[BR]]
     185  * 2)  Matt has a contact at HTC.  He feels that they might well be willing to make a batch of Evos for us.  We would have to talk with them to understand the minimum quantity.
