    2525== Abstract ==
    2626
    27 The purpose of this tutorial is to provide hands-on experience with step-by-step guidance in designing and conducting a GENI WiMAX experiment. Participants will learn how to reserve WiMAX resources, configure a GENI WiMAX base station, and develop and execute an OMF experiment using WiMAX-equipped clients.
     27In this tutorial, participants will gain hands-on experience with step-by-step guidance in designing and conducting an experiment utilizing GENI wireless infrastructure. Participants will work in small groups to learn how to reserve resources, configure a GENI WiMAX base station, and develop and execute an OMF experiment using WiMAX-equipped clients, all within the context of a non-trivial experiment from a major area of computer science or networking research.

    30 Active participants will be divided into three groups. Each group will work closely with an instructor to develop a non-trivial experiment in one of these three areas:
    31  * HetNets
    32  * Wireless Sensor Networks
    33  * Education
     30The material in this tutorial has been updated and supplemented in preparation for GEC15, so participants in past GENI WiMAX Tutorials will still find plenty of new information.

    35 
    36 This tutorial is quite different from the WiMAX tutorial at GEC13, so participants in the GEC13 tutorial are welcome to attend this tutorial as well!

    3833== Prerequisites ==
    3934
    40 Participants in this tutorial will benefit from some familiarity with OMF. Attendees with no previous OMF experience should consider attending the [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/GEC14Agenda/OMFTutorial OMF tutorial] on Monday.
    41 
    42 Attendees may benefit from familiarizing themselves with the GENI WiMAX testbeds by making an account at a GENI WiMAX site and running the preliminary experiments [http://witestlab.poly.edu/index.php/tutorial.html link].
    43 
    44 Active participants will need a laptop equipped with an SSH client (such as [http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ Putty]  for Windows) and a web browser.
    45 
    46 == 1.  Introduction to GENI WiMAX ==
    47 
    48 '''Aim:''' Motivation for GENI WiMAX, and brief overview.
    49 
    50 In this section, we will introduce the motivation for GENI WiMAX sites, and also give a brief overview of the architecture of the WiMAX testbeds. [[br]]

    53 
    54 == 2.  Arrangements for this tutorial ==
    55 
    56 '''Aim:''' Divide participants into groups for the rest of the tutorial and login to testbeds using assigned credentials.
    57 
    58 Participants will divide into three groups. Each groups will work closely with an instructor to develop an experiment showcasing the use of GENI WiMAX testbeds for wireless research or education.
    59 
    60 
    61 
    62 == 3.  Designing an experiment for GENI WiMAX ==
    63 
    64 '''Aim:''' Participants will work in groups, guided by an instructor, to develop and execute an experiment to answer a significant research question or serve some educational purpose.
    65 
    66 
    67 The three tracks are:
    68 
    69  * HetNets Track: Design an experiment to evaluate a protocol for cooperative recovery over WiFi and WiMAX networks (WINLAB sb4)  [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/GEC14Agenda/WiMAXTutorial/WiMAX%20Tutorial%20GEC14%20-%20HetNet.pdf slides]
    70  * WSN Track: Design an experiment that sets up a wireless sensor network at one testbed site (NYU-Poly) and transmits sensor measurements over the WiMAX link and the GENI backbone to nodes at another site (BBN) for processing and serving a meaningful display on the public Internet  [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/GEC14Agenda/WiMAXTutorial/WiMAX%20Tutorial%20GEC14%20-%20WSN.pdf slides]
    71  * Education track: Design an instructional lab experiment that students can run to learn about key properties and capabilities of wireless broadband networks (e.g. modulation and coding, ARQ) [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/GEC14Agenda/WiMAXTutorial/WiMAX%20Tutorial%20GEC14%20-%20Edu.pdf slides]
    72 
    73 Each group will cover the following lessons in the context of their given track:
    74 
    75 '''Experiment design'''
    76  * Choosing a connectivity option for testbed nodes (local network, public Internet, GENI backbone) that makes sense for the given experiment
    77  * Choosing resources (sb4, wireless sensor network, etc.)
    78  * Selecting OML-ized applications (iperf, HTTP server/client, sensor app, social app, BitTorrent) to use for the experiment
    79 
    80 '''Setting up a WiMAX testbed in preparation for an experiment'''
    81  * Load baseline disk image
    82  * Restart base station to default settings
    83  * Assign WiMAX clients to the selected VLAN
    84 
    85 '''Use basic WiMAX functionality in OMF'''
    86  * Connect to the WiMAX network
    87  * Assign an IP address to a WiMAX client
    88  * Configure a WiMAX base station
    89  * Use an OML-instrumented application from OMF
    90 
    91 '''Conducting ongoing experiments'''
    92  * Saving a disk image for later use
    93  * Extending and revising an OMF script
    94  * Retrieving experimental results from OML and post-processing
    95 
    96 
    97 == 4. Review ==
    98 
    99 '''Aim:''' Solidify lessons learned and communicate results between groups.
    100 
    101 One or more representatives from each group will briefly describe the experiment design process and demonstrate the experiment.
     35 * Attendees may benefit from familiarizing themselves with the GENI WiMAX testbeds by making an account at a GENI WiMAX site and running the preliminary experiments [http://witestlab.poly.edu/index.php/tutorial.html link].
     36 * Active participants will need a laptop equipped with an SSH client (such as [http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ Putty]  for Windows) and a web browser.
