    87 The 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.

    8989For 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.

     94Later in 2010, NEC will be updating their WiMAX equipment to utilize a "Type C" Base Station, where a fully standardized R6 interface will be exposed.  When this occurs:
     95 The ASN gateway software will have to be modified, with an effort of at leat 2 MM. [[BR]]
     96 The researcher will have diminished ability to monitor and control the base station radio functions. [[BR]]

     102The overall GENI buildout plan is funded by an NSF contract, and is summarized in in[http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/WiMAXInteg/113009%20v0.5%20GENIDandPInfraBuildouts.pdf  GENI D&P WiMAX Infrastructure Buildout].[[BR]]

     113In addition, it is expected that additional GENI-related campuses and sites may separately purchase the necessary equipment to build their own WiMAX campus deployment kits, and then deploy them with aid from the GPO and Rutgers WINLAB.
