At GEC16:

4.2) Add "yellow nodes" to WiMAX sites

Ivan Seskar (WINLAB)

  • These are "yellow nodes", introduced in ORBIT testbed
  • Can be used as:
    • General fixed servers
    • Support Multiple Base-Station Mgmt Srvc
    • Support Data-Path GW Srvc
    • Support OMF/OML and Login services
    • Provide WiFi access points
    • Act as fixed "mobile stations"
    • Act as vehicular mobile station (option: 12v power supply)
  • Currently used by: Rutgers WINLAB; NYU Poly; BBN
  • How can these be provided to sites?
    • One design to serve all needs
    • Approximate cost: $800 - $1500
  • What are next steps?
    • Working with other projects, refine design to balance functionality and cost, and decide what nodes are needed at which sites
    • Order parts (due 11/15/12)
    • Assemble and deliver to sites (due 1/15/13)
    • Can a few of the current yellow nodes be delivered to sites right away with OMF/OML and new WiMAX RF AggMgr?
  • Planned allocation:
    • High-speed nodes (fixed applications only):
  • Low-speed nodes: (fixed or mobile applications):
