This WiMAX aggregate supports the GENI Aggregate Provider Agreement (Nov. 1, 2011).

WiMAX Aggregate Overview

Aggregate Manager Common Name nyu-wimax
Aggregate Resources This WiMAX aggregate includes the following supported resources to all experimenters: one NEC WiMAX base station, and thirteen dedicated PCs that can load specified OS images equipped with WiMAX USB dongles. The WiMAX Base stations are also connected to the InstaGENI racks to provide dataplane connectivity. Additional resources may be available but not fully supported, including: second WiMAX base station, fifteen additional dedicated PCs, Android handsets.
Typical Experiments Experimenters get dedicated PCs on which they have full "root" access, run available operating systems of their choice, connect nodes to the WiMAX Base station and choose a datapath vlan to send their traffic. Examples of experiments completed on the NYU WiMAX site are available here
Sample RSpecs both-wimax-vm-rspec.xml
Slice Authorities Recognized GENI Portal (, WITest local accounts are also supported (
Layer 2 Connectivity Enter list of VLANs; WiMAX-local, which connects the WiMAX Base station to a GENI rack and WiMAX-multipoint, which connects all GENI aggregates at WiMAX sites into a single broadcast domain.

For Compute Aggregate , <<Insert Site Diagram Here>> Make sure to note firewalls, if any, on both control (layer 3) and data paths.
