This project will install a GENI WiMAX Base Station Kit provided by Rutgers on the Columbia University campus, and operate it with the ORBIT Management Framework (OMF). It will enhance our WORKIT nodes with WiMAX clients and GPS capabilities, add remote control and virtualization capabilities, and operate them with OMF. It will also build teaching modules to explore wide area wireless network issues and applications.
