    5555You can read more about the specific resources of the WINLAB testbed [http://www.orbit-lab.org/status/orbit/ here].

     57== WiMAX configuration ==
     58The WiMAX base stations are designed to "just work" in their default configuration. However, if you would like to change the settings on the base station, you can find the syntax [http://wimax.orbit-lab.org/wiki/WiMAX/17 here] (refer to the TOC on the right of the page for links to specific settings).

     60== Tools and Services ==

     62=== OMF ===
     63
     64OMF is a platform to support rigorous and repeatable experiments in a wireless environment. It provides an unambiguous way to describe an experiment, thus enabling repeatability.
     65
     66One OMF experiment can run on any GENI WiMAX testbed with minimal modifications.
     67
     68You '''don't have to use OMF''' to run experiments on a GENI WiMAX testbed - you may also run experiments manually by logging on to each node via SSH and executing commands on the nodes yourself. However, once you have figured out exactly how you want to configure your resources and what commands you want to run on them, OMF makes it much easier to run, refine, and repeat your experiment.
     69
     70=== OML ===
     71
     72OML is a measurement library and framework that provides a method for instrumenting experiments to stream measurements to a storage server during execution. The measurements are saved in a standard database format, which you can retrieve later for data analysis and visualization.
     73
     74=== Applications ===
     75
     76A number of commonly used applications and utilities (e.g. iperf, VLC) have been instrumented with OML to enable their use in OMF experiments. More information about these applications is available at:
     77 * [http://mytestbed.net/projects/omlapp/wiki NICTA OML Applications Overview]
     78 * [http://witestlab.poly.edu/index.php/wirelesstestbeds/omfnettest/oml-applications.html Additional OML Applications from NYU-Poly]

    6080== Establish Environment ==
     
    103123The 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.
