This project will deploy a multi-sector WiMAX network (three sectors total) in Metro Detroit which supports handoff, based on WiMAX base station kits provided by Rutgers. The sectors will be connected via a flexible access network to the GENI backbone network (e.g., NLR). It will develop and deploy a WiMAX mobile station platform with measurement services, based upon baseline mobile station software provided by Rutgers, and including OpenXC provided by Ford. It will utilize the WiMAX network and mobile stations for experiments in sensing and vehicular infotainment.

Current Capabilities

TBA. (BRIEF descriptions of resources/functions/tools that are available to anyone in the GENI community)

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.
