WiMAX Aggregate

Wayne State University

This WiMAX aggregate supports the GENI Aggregate Provider Agreement (11/01/2011).

WiMAX Aggregate Overview

Aggregate Manager Common Name waynestate-wimax
Aggregate Resources A WiMAX aggregate includes 2 WiMAX Base stations, 2 servers and 1 Console Node that offer control and management services (e.g., dhcp services, node registeration ), 3 dedicated PCs that can load experimenter specified OS images equipped with WiMAX USB dongles, 6 Samsung Galaxy S2 handsets running Android 4.1, and 1 VSC platform that can sense the vehicle internal state and traffic status surrounding the platform with multiple sensors and a WiMAX USB dongle. The WiMAX Base stations are also connected to the ExoGENI racks to provide dataplane connectivity
Typical Experiments WiMAX Aggregates provide a controllable, predictable, and repeatable network environment. 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. With the VSC platform, the experimenters can evaluate their ideas or protocols related to the vehicular networks. They are able to simply deploy their experiments with APIs provided by the VSC platform and to use the real-world sensing data as input for large-scale emulations.
Sample RSpecs Link to RSpecs used successfully for dataplane connectivity from racks to the WiMAX base stations on WiMAX-multipoint and WiMAX-local VLANs
Slice Authorities Recognized GENI Portal (
Layer 2 Connectivity VLAN 1815 that connects the WiMAX BSs to the GENI backbone. A more detailed VLAN list is going to be added when we finish the network connectivity configuration of the Exogeni rack at our site.
