This project will add WiMax capability to a Campus Vehicular Testbed (C-VeT) to support the deployment and testing of vehicular services and applications over both WiFi and WiMax. It will feature resource virtualization in order to enable shared access by multiple experimenters using the ORBIT Management Framework (OMF). To establish the WiMax capability, we will procure a “GENI WiMax base station kit”.
