     87The GENI WiMAX project currently utilizes commercial NEC WiMAX equipment as the basis of its WiMAX campus deployment kit, including a "Type A" Base Station and a separate ASN Gateway, joined by the R6 interface.  The R6 interface has not been fully standardized, and thus includes NEC-specific functions. 
     88
     89For the GENI WiMAX project, the WiMAX campus deployment kit provides the GENI Researcher with much flexibility:
     90 The use of a Type A Base Station with an exposed R6 interface enables the researcher to monitor and control the basestation radio functions. 
     91 The ASN gateway utilizes some essential NEC code, but removes many high-level WiMAX functions (e.g., roaming) and allows the researcher to implement their own.
     92 Finally, the ASN gateway includes slicing functions, to allow the base station and ASN gateway to be shared by multiple researchers at the same time.
