    200200The WiMAX base station is in the top right corner of the map. The location of the antenna is shown marked with a small red arrow. The antenna is aimed towards the building labelled as "Columbia University" in the center of the northern part of the campus.

    202 Since the antenna was installed in a location we could reach easily, rather than the perfect location, we were trying to cover only the northern third of the campus, above Low Memorial Library. It turned out that even from that antenna location most of the campus is covered, which is much better than what we had hoped for. We used a laptop with an Intel 5150 WiMAX adapter. The laptop could connect to the base station from all yellow, green, and blue areas. With default values for most parameters on the base station, the download speed measured in selected green spots was about 8 Mbit/s. Columbia campus, being located in Manhattan, is comprised mostly of high-rise buildings. Nevertheless we can connect to the base station from most publicly accessible areas.
