Extended GENI WiMAX Capabilities

GENI WiMAX capabilities were extended by Sol 3 projects, including the addition of additional sites and the introduction of Airspan base stations. The following summarize the configuration of GENI WiMAX sites at the end of Spiral 4, and the types of WiMAX experiments these sites could support:

4.2) New services: Multiple Base-Station Mgmt Srvc and Data-Path GW Srvc

4:10pm
Ivan Seskar (Rutgers WINLAB) and Davide Pesavento (UCLA)

  • Multiple Base-Station Mgmt Srvc:
  • 1) Have updated WiMAX RF AggMgr for NEC base station to 2.5.3+; additional updates coming
    • Feeds management data to centralized DB at WINLAB, for GENI-wide monitoring
    • Due: ?
  • 2) New WiMAX RF AggMgr for Airspan base station
    • Provides configuration, to replace Netspan; now running
    • Provides node authorization, and measurements per client
    • First version due: 12/15/12
    • Could BBN, NYU Poly begin testing early version, to replace Netspan?
    • Could early version be shipped to sites on yellow node, with OMF/OML?
  • 3) Build WiMAX RF AggMgr that can control multiple BSs, either NEC and/or Airspan, with same API
    • Should be useful for handover/multi-homing functions: shared white list of MS, allowed to connect to one BS or another
    • What other features are needed?
    • First version due: 3/15/13
  • Data-path GW Srvc:
    • Bridges each base station to global datapath
    • Includes CLICK router (two types)
    • Includes OpenV switch (open-source OF)
    • Should be useful for handover/multi-homing functions
    • First version due: 3/15/13
    • Could there be an earlier version, that provides basic functions, and be manually configured?
    • Could BBN, NYU Poly begin testing early version?
    • Could early version be shipped to sites on yellow node?

What are next steps?

  • Finalize features for WiMAX RF AggMgr releases (due 11/15/12)
  • Establish delivery schedule for WiMAX RF AggMgr releases
  • Could there be an earlier version fo WiMAX RF AggMgr, that provides just basic functions, and be manually configured? released by 11/15/12?
  • Establish acceptance test plan by BBN, NYU Poly, for WiMAX RF AggMgr releases
  • Finalize features for Data-path GW Srvc releases (due 11/15/12)
  • Establish delivery schedule for Data-path GW Srvc releases
  • Establish acceptance test plan by BBN, NYU Poly, for WiMAX RF AggMgr releases
