Project Title

Enabling Programmable Mobile Storage Services through GENI-enabled WiMAX Base-station Capabilities

Technical Contacts

PI: Z. Morley Mao, University of Michigan,
Co-PI: Ulas Kozat, DOCOMO USA Labs,

Participating Organizations

University of Michigan

GPO Liaison System Engineer

GPO System Engineer: Harry Mussman


This project will deploy one WiMAX base station kit (provided by Rutgers) at the University of Michigan, and connect it to an instance of the Infinity framework that is deployed on GENI resources. The Infinity framework provides for virtual storage flexibly mapped to physical storage, network adaptation to manipulate the routing of storage packets, and mobile terminal adaptation to the user’s needs. Together, they will be used to deploy and demonstrate resource-aware content delivery over a wireless link. The Infinity API will be provided to enable others to perform new experiments based on programmable storage.

Spiral 2 Connectivity

Links to wiki pages about details of infrastrcture that the project is using (if any). Examples include IP addresses, hostnames, URLs, DNS servers, local site network maps, VLANIDs (if permanent VLANs are used), pointers to public keys. GPO may do first drafts of any of these and have the PI correct them to bootstrap. May also include ticket links for pending or known connectivity issues. Many projects will have a full tree of wiki pages here.
