Cooperate with Clearwire

Manu Gosain (GPO) and Ivan Seskar (WINLAB)

  • Current approach, as an alternative to an agreement that leases Clearwire spectrum to GENI sites:
    • Operate under an experimental license from the FCC; otherwise require contract between site and Clearwire, with $ and conditions
    • Agreement between Rutgers WINLAB and Clearwire, on enhanced cooperation
    • Maintain accurate DB of site information and contacts at Rutgers, and share with Clearwire
    • Responsive local contact, at each site
    • Centralized monitoring server at Rutgers WINLAB
    • Ability to quickly turn off site transmitter, if interference suspected
    • Possible extension: remote emergency stop, with access to GMOC

What are next steps?

  • Review information on site information and site dashboard pages, and finalize
  • Establish process to add site information, then maintain and track
  • Establish email list for operations issues
  • Provide operations interface to GMOC and Clearwire
  • Complete agreement with Clearwire
  • Encourage all GENI sites to obtain experimental licenses
  • Include WiMAX into GENI emergency stop process
  • Consider adding a WiMAX "emergency stop" button, for use by the GMOC
