On-Campus WiMAX

In this experiment, we'll explore what you can do with on-campus WiMAX.

More than a dozen campuses are now participating in GENI WiMAX. While anybody can use GENI WiMAX remotely, if you are on or near a WiMAX campus you can also do interactive, mobile, and live experiments.

Experiment Background

In this experiment, we'll run a WebRTC video chat in which one participant is using a commodity laptop equipped with a USB WiMAX dongle. (The other participant is connected to the Internet over WiFi).

WebRTC is a new and evolving video standard for enabling voice, video, and data communications in the browser - without plugins. A diverse and vibrant ecosystem of applications using WebRTC has grown up and around the standard in the last year.

Instrumenting the Experiment

We're using the oml4js library, a JavaScript library for collecting measurements from a website and storing them using OML. While the video chat is active, measurements from the chat will be continuously streamed to a local OML server on the laptop. After the experiment is over, we'll push the results to iRODS and examine them more closely there.
