Agenda / Details

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.


  • Active participants will need a laptop equipped with an SSH client (such as Putty for Windows) and a web browser.
  • You may also want to use an SQLite browser to view experiment data. If you don't already have one, you can download this SQLite browser Firefox extension.

Tutorial Tracks

In the instructor-guided tutorial session, participants will break into small groups to learn how to use GENI WiMAX tools to design, instrument, execute, and evaluate a non-trivial research-oriented experiment.
