Next Steps

Wisconsin (1724) Suman Banerjee: Status

Cisco base station up and running.

Have the towers up for base station kit, but not on the air; campus getting AT&T cell overhaul has precedence

Working on integration with NEC

Plan to set up 3 stations to cover whole Madison campus

Want vehicle connectivity, including Madison metro transit

Also have a deal with regional bus using 3G

Working on handoffs between 3G, WiMAX, WiFi

See demo tonight

Custom-built WiMAX station on busses

Using Cisco modems, and external WimAX antenna on the roof

Get 1-1.5 mile range
