    134   * (1) and (2) run Ubuntu, (3) runs Windows.  [[BR]]
    135   * It has Ethernet connections to the NEC IDU, NYU-Poly network (and Internet), and very soon GENI backbone (campus IS just informed me that they will be testing that tomorrow).  [[BR]]
    136   * We have firewall rules set up so this host only accepts traffic from host (2) on the wimaxrf AM port. This allows us to make sure that only users with a current reservation can configure the BS. [[BR]]

     879  * We have firewall rules set up so this host only accepts traffic from host (2) on the wimaxrf AM port. This allows us to make sure that only users with a current reservation can configure the BS. [[BR]]

     885
     886 * 3) physical host that serves our group website and the reservation system for the testbed. It's connected to the NYU-Poly network (and Internet)  [[BR]]
     887  * (1) and (2) run Ubuntu, (3) runs Windows. [[BR]]
     888
     889 * Our testbed nodes are scattered throughout several CS labs and research areas (not part of our group).  [[BR]]
     890  * They are connected to the pre-existing Ethernet jacks in the walls and floors of those rooms, which all go back to a CS server room, where we patch them through to our own (non-openflow) switch for the control network. [[BR]]
     891  * We do have an openflow switch that we plan to deploy somewhere at some point. [[BR]]

     954
     955 * Summary of discussions with Sprint about unlocked HTC Evo handset  [[BR]]
     956  * Must be unlocked by Sprint, so can register with GENI network  [BR]]
     957  * Perhaps:  500 handsets, purchased by Rutgers WINLAB, approx $500 per handset, and distributed to sites  [[BR]]
     958  * Harry reports:  waiting for 3-way NDA to be signed, so that we can resume discussions with Sprint  [[BR]]
     959  * Need to poll sites for interest  [[BR]]
     960
     961
     962 *  Also possible:  Sprint MVNO arrangement for pay-as-you-go data service  [[BR]]

     966 * Comments from Matt Sanders (Georgia Tech), who attended the WiMAX meeting  [[BR]]
     967  * Along with other jobs, he reports to the CTO, and is campus wireless services manager.    [[BR]]
     968  * He has extensive experience negotiating with carriers (and I believe Sprint).  [[BR]]
     969  * We talked for some time, and he agreed to advise us as we continue our discussions with Sprint.  [[BR]] 
     970
     971 * His comments:  [[BR]]
     972  * 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]]
     973  * 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.
