    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,per Figure 6-2, above.  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:
     
    9292 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.[[BR]]

    94 Later 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]]
     94Later in 2010, NEC will be updating their WiMAX equipment to utilize a Type C Base Station, where some of the current ASN gateway functions are included in the Base station, and fully standardized R6 interface is exposed.  When this occurs:
     95 The current GENI-specific ASN gateway software will have to be modified, with an effort of at leat 2 MM. [[BR]]
    9696 The researcher will have diminished ability to monitor and control the base station radio functions. [[BR]]

    113 The WiMAX Kit Project (1753) is purchasing and supplying WiMAX campus deployment kits to all of the above campuses, except Stanford, which purchased their own kit. [[BR]]
     113As part of the Spiral 1 WiMAX D&P prject, two WiMAX campus deployment kits was purchased for:
     114 Rutgers, WINLAB[[BR]]
     115 NEC Labs America [[BR]]

     117The WiMAX Kit Project (1753) is purchasing and supplying WiMAX campus deployment kits to these campuses:
     118 Rutgers, Bush Campus [[BR]]
     119 Columbia University [[BR]]
     120 Polytechnic Institute of NYU[[BR]]
     121 UCLA[[BR]]
     122 University of Colorado at Boulder[[BR]]
     123 UMass Amherst[[BR]]
     124 University of Wisconsin[[BR]]

     126The following campus purchased their own kit;
     127 Stanford [[BR]]
    114128
    115129In addition, the following 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:
