Participating Organizations

Wisconsin Wireless and NetworkinG Systems (WiNGS) laboratory
Cisco Systems

GPO Liaison System Engineer

Scope

This project will integrate the currently operational, heterogeneous WiNGS-outdoor testbed spanning 60 square miles in and around Madison, WI, called MadBed, into GENI, and provide systematic low-level access to PHY/MAC features using the ORBIT Management Framework (OMF). It will add a “GENI WiMax Base Station Kit”, provided by an associated proposal, to the testbed to complement an existing Cisco/Navini WiMax base station. It will add a mobility services engine to the testbed, and enhance the user nodes, to allow the testbed to support a wide range of wireless experiments. It will provide a unique trial mechanism for opt-in users in the broader Madison area.
