    346  * General Installation:
    347   * Server currently being installed with Windows Server 2008 R2
    348   * Awaiting CCIT to complete installation process
    349   * Additional machine ready to handle OMF/OML
    350   * Two VLANs created for client and management traffic

    353348 * Clemson campus location:
    354   * Base station installed
    355   * Both VLANs run to base station
    356   * Initial configuration performed using Rutgers’ Netspan installation

    358   * 10 MHz channel centered at 2507.5 MHz
    359   * One transmitter is reporting low output power due to RF fault
    360   * Unable to detect a signal from the base station in line-of-sight
    361   * Obtaining spectrum analyzer to verify signal output

    372   * No web interface is available for basic configuration
    373   * In communication with Airspan regarding repair
