This project will extend and enhance GENI WiMAX deployments, currently supported by an earlier Rutgers-based GENI project. It will procure 10 Airspan Profile C base stations (one sector each) for delivery to existing and new campus sites. It will extend current WiMAX base station software to support the newer Profile C base stations, multi-cell/multi-sector operation, flexible OpenFlow-based access, authentication services and location-based services. It will deploy multi-cell/multi-sector networks at two campus sites (Rutgers and UCLA), supporting both vehicular nodes for mobility experiments and opt-in end users for service-level evaluations. It will integrate base station functions into a GENI rack, and demonstrate operation via the GENI AM API.

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.
