In 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.

The 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.


  • 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 link.
  • Active participants will need a laptop equipped with an SSH client (such as Putty for Windows) and a web browser.
