    4242== Testbed Reservation ==
    43 Each site might have one ore more testbeds. As these are wireless testbeds, it is difficult to run multiple experiments without interference. Therefore, we currently only support one experiment at a time on each testbed.

    100 Reservations will have been created ahead of time for the temporary tutorial credentials used in the [wiki:GEC15Agenda/ExperimenterDropIn Experimenter Drop-in Help Session] at GEC15. But for future reference, you may visit the following links (using the account you have set up on a GENI WiMAX testbed) to reserve WiMAX resources:

    102  * [https://www.orbit-lab.org/schedule/ Reservations at WINLAB]. Detailed instructions for using this reservation system are available [http://www.orbit-lab.org/wiki/Documentation/Scheduling here].

    109 === Resources ===
    110 
    111 A GENI WiMAX testbed includes a number of components (pictured below):
    112 
    113  * A '''console''' that runs a set of services that help you manage and execute your experiment
    114  * A WiMAX '''base station'''
    115  * A set of '''nodes''', which may include laptop computers, Android phones, or special PCs colloquially referred to as "yellow boxes."

    117 [[Image(http://witestlab.poly.edu/images/stories/testbed.png, 60%)]]
    118 
    119 You can read more about the specific resources available on each testbed at the following links:
    120  * [http://witestlab.poly.edu/index.php/wimax/testbed.html NYU-Poly testbed]
    121  * [http://www.orbit-lab.org/status/orbit/ WINLAB testbed]
    122 
    123 NB: The WINLAB facility includes multiple testbeds. WiMAX nodes are available on the following testbeds:
    124  * grid (make a reservation for '''grid''' and '''wimax''')
    125  * outdoor (make a reservation for '''outdoor''' and '''wimax''')
    126  * sb6 (make a reservation for '''sb6''' and '''wimax''')
    127  * sb7 (make a reservation for '''sb7''' and '''wimax''')
    128  * sb8 (make a reservation for '''sb8''' and '''wimax''')
    129  * sb4 (make a reservation for '''sb4''' - you do not need to also reserve '''wimax''', because sb4 has its own base station that is reserved automatically).
    130 
    131 The NYU-Poly facility only has a single testbed. When you make a reservation at NYU-Poly, you have reserved the entire testbed, including all nodes and the WiMAX base station.

    135 
    136 There are also several libraries available to help you instrument your own applications for use with OML:
    137  * For C and C++ - install [http://mytestbed.net/projects/oml/wiki/Installing_OML_packages liboml2-dev] and use it as described [http://mytestbed.net/projects/oml/wiki/Client_Programming here]
    138  * For Ruby - use the [https://rubygems.org/gems/oml4r oml4r] gem
    139  * For Python - use the [http://pypi.python.org/pypi/oml4py/ oml4py] module
