    392 The BBN Node had already been added before out first access, we assume some existing node was cloned.  To access details for the BBN nodes, you must select "Nodes" in the lower left corner home page.  Double click on "nodes" and a list of nodes appears in the main panel:
     392This section captures the NetSpan Configuration for the BBN base station, other site will have different Node Types, Radio Profiles and Network Profiles.  In particular for the Radio profile, the site's assigned frequency must be considered, more details in the Cell Radio Profile section below.
     393 
     394The BBN Node had already been added before out first access, we assume some existing eNodeB was cloned and expect that additional site will start by cloning the BBN or other eNodeB entry and then modify its configuration. 
     395
     396== Configure eNodeB settings ==
     397
     398This section captures the procedure used for the BBN eNodeB node and it is assumed other site will use this as a reference, keeping in mind changes required for their sites Node Types, Radio Profiles and Network Profiles. 
     399
     400== Select a Node to Clone ==
     401
     402To access list of available nodes that can be cloned, select "Nodes" in the lower left corner home page.  Double click on "nodes" and a list of nodes appears in the main panel:

    397 On the resulting page,  double click  "BBN eNodeB" in the main panel list to access node configuration details.
     407On the resulting page, in the main panel a list of nodes is shown that can be used for duplication.

    401 In the resulting panel select the "Provision" tab, scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Edit" to modify settings.  Following is a capture of the current setting which use the Rutgers MMS and the BBN Cell Radio Profile:
     412In the resulting list, double click on node to be cloned and in the resulting page rename to your site, in our case "BBN eNodeB" was used. Click "Validate" and then click "OK" to save new node.

     414
     415== Configure Your eNodeB node ==
     416
     417Access node configuration details, by selecting "Nodes" in the lower left corner of the home page and a list of nodes will be shown in the main panel.  In our case we double click on the  "BBN eNodeB" entry. In the resulting page, select the "Provision" tab, scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Edit" to modify settings.  Following is a capture of the "BBN eNodeB" settings which use the Rutgers MMS and the BBN Cell Radio Profile:

    405 The "BBN_band-41" Radio profile was created for our setup:
     421
     422The "BBN_band-41" Cell Radio Profile was created for our setup. Each site must create its own Cell Ratio Profile and requires that you first know the EUTRA Absolute radio-frequency channel number (EARFCN) assignment for your site.  A list of allocated upper and lower frequencies (MHz) is found at [http://wimax.orbit-lab.org/wiki/aaOperations#IPaddressassignment Orbit-Lab Site Operation Resources] page.  For example the BBN Base Station configured in this example has the Lower Frequency 2573 MHz and the Upper Frequency 2583 MHz, a 10 MHz range.  To calculate the BBN EARFCN an [http://niviuk.free.fr/lte_band.php LTE Frequency Calculator] was used where the Lower Frequency entered to determine te Band to be used in our Radio Cell Profile:

     427Next we insert the calculate EARFCN DL value in the BBN Cell Radio Profile
