    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 implementation is not 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 base station radio functions.  [[BR]]
     90 The use of a Profile A Base Station with an exposed R6 interface enables the researcher to monitor and control the base station radio functions.  [[BR]]
    9191 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.[[BR]]
    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]]
    9393 
    94 Later 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:

    9595 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]]
