    100100|| No ||  Issue  ||  Who  ||  Opened  ||  Resolved  || Resolution  ||  Note  ||
    101 || 4.1  || "GENI Operator ID":  Each WiMAX deployment requires an Operator ID (OpID), a parameter used within the base station and each client.  Currently, Routgers WINLAB is using the Sprint/Clearwire ID, but this can only be temporary.  We need to apply for and receive a "GENI Operator ID".  ||  Michel  ||  12/09  || -  || -  || Per Seskar, apply at [https://standards.ieee.org/regauth/BOPID/Broadband_OperatorID_Request_Form.html IEEE 802.16 site].  Fee is $1200.||
    102 || 4.2  ||   Range and capacity:  Need to be able to estimate the expected range and capacity of a completed installation, and how this varies with antenna height, to guide each campus in their planning.  Also, how this varies depending on the number of clients and their data rates. ||  Michel, Seskar  ||  12/09  || -  || -  || Seskar:  Have some data from Rutgers WINLAB site, and expect more when Rutgers Bush Campus site is in service.  ||
    103 || 4.3  ||   GPS receiver:  NEC documentation shows a GPS receiver mounted along with the antenna, and connected to the NW INTFC on the IDU.  It provides precise timing signals to the base station.  What would the benefit be to include it in the kit?  How much would it cost?  Should we include it with the kit?  If we do not include it, should we at least run the cable so that it can be added later?  ||  Rangarajan, Seskar, Michel  ||  -  || -  || -  || -  ||
     101|| 4.1  || "GENI Operator ID":  Each WiMAX deployment requires an Operator ID (OpID), a parameter used within the base station and each client.  Currently, Routgers WINLAB is using the Sprint/Clearwire ID, but this can only be temporary.  We need to apply for and receive a "GENI Operator ID".  ||  Michel  ||  2/23/10  || -  || -  || Per Seskar, apply at [https://standards.ieee.org/regauth/BOPID/Broadband_OperatorID_Request_Form.html IEEE 802.16 site].  Fee is $1200.||

Can configure split between downstream and upstream.  With 10MHz bandwidth, limited to approximately 20Mbps total.  Have seen range approximately x10 of WiFi range.  Have seen downstream of 2+Mbs at 2km combined with 7Mbs at short distances.  NEC will not release their range info.  Need to check open WiMAX literature, and measure.  ||
     103|| 4.3  ||   GPS receiver:  NEC documentation shows a GPS receiver mounted along with the antenna, and connected to the NW INTFC on the IDU.  It provides precise timing signals to the base station.  On 2/23, we agreed to include in the kit, since total cost is likely to be less than $125, and it should be installed at the start.  ||  Michel, Seskar ||  2/23/10  || -  || -  || Need to engineer active antenna and cable for up to 100m, and need a BOM for active antenna, arrestor and cable.  ||
    104104|| 4.4  ||   "GENI PKI Certificate":  If we want to do over-the-air provisioning to clients, we will require a PKI certifiacte signed by Verisign, that clients can verify (per Seskar).  ||  Michel ||  2/23/10  || -  || -  || Need to decide how GENI would use this;  if worthwhile, then plan process to obtain one.  ||

    148148|| 5.1  ||  Who wants additional kits:  We need to compile a list of GENI-related campuses and sites that want to purchase the necessary equipment to build their own WiMAX campus deployment kits.  Current list:  BBN Technologies (firm); University of Wisconsin, 2nd site (?); other? ||  Mussman  ||  12/09  || -  || -  ||  We need this to be firm by 3/31/10, to be ready to place the order. ||
    149149|| 5.2  ||    How to order additional kits:  We need to understand how to order the key components from NEC for a WiMAX campus deployment kit, both BofM and process.  ||  Rangarajan  ||  2/10  || -  || -  || We need this by 3/31/10, to be ready to place the order.  ||
    150 || 5.3  ||   Resaerch plans:  Each project should review and update their plans for research, which can help drive design of kit and software.   ||  All  ||  -  || -  || -  || -  ||

     151|| 5.4  ||   Spares:  Currently, there are designated spares for hardware:  ODU, NETINTFC card or CH card.  What will we do if we need a spare?  ||  Rangarajan, Mussman  ||  2/23/10  || -  || -  || Need to check on NEC America budget for spares.  Need to check on GPO budget for spares.  ||

    345345|| 6.3  ||   Connection of WiMAX testbeds:  How will WiMAX testbeds be connected together, using a VLAN carried by a GENI backbone?  ||  Mussman, Seskar, team  ||  -  || -  || -  || -  ||
    346346|| 6.4  ||   Kit delivery sequence:  It has been planned that three kits will be delivered during Spiral 2, and the remaining four during Spiral 3.  It has been planned that the first three kits will be delivered to campuses/sites where there is easy access for support, i.e., at nearby locations: NEC Labs America, Columbia University, and Polytechnic Institute of NYU.  However, it would also make sense to deliver a kit ONLY when the campus/site has received an FCC license, and is ready to install the kit.  Thus, the delivery sequence may also depend on campus status.  ||  Mussman, Seskar, team  ||  -  || -  || -  || -  ||

     347|| 6.5  ||   Kit contents:  Need to add GPS antenna parts, when known. Agreed to move power supplies into category provided by Rutgers. ||  Michel, Mussman  ||  2/23/10  || -  || -  || -  ||
