1 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation GENI WiMAX: BBN Status and Experience Manu Gosain GENI Project Office at Raytheon BBN Technologies Nov 2, 2010

2 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation Agenda WiMAX Build-out Essentials WiMAX Build-out Status WiMAX Base Station BBN Infrastructure BBN Mobile Stations (Clients) BBN OMF/OML Setup BBN Experiments Next Steps

3 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation WiMAX Build-out Essentials Operation in Educational Broadband Services band WiMAX base station kit provided for each site Experiment control structure using OMF/OML –except UMass

4 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation WiMAX Build-out Essentials WiMAX base station kit provided for each site –Open and programmable –Sliceable (can be shared, to support multiple experiments) –Affordable (because limited to one 120-degree sector) –Software developed by Rutgers WINLAB and NEC Labs; see –Commercial WiMAX hardware (and low-level software) provided by NEC –Kits built and distributed by Rutgers WINLAB; see

5 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation WiMAX Base Station

6 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation WiMAX Build-out Status See current view at All sites have FCC licenses –Most obtained experimental license within a few weeks after application to the FCC Sites in operation: –Rutgers WINLAB (2Q09) –BBN Technologies (3Q10) –NYU Polytechnic (3Q10) –Stanford (separate process) Sites still being planned or installed: –UCLA –UC Boulder –Wisconsin (will add two kits to existing Cisco system) –UMass Amherst –Columbia Univ

7 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation BBN Infrastructure Outdoors: –Omni antenna (on top) –NEC 120-degree sector antenna (aimed towards Boston) –Patch antenna –GPS antenna (for timing) –NEC Outdoor Unit (ODU) –Coax switching and power junction box Indoors: –NEC Indoor Unit (IDU) –Base Station Server –OMF/OML Server

8 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation BBN Mobile Stations (Clients) Windows PC with USB-connected WiMAX modem –Example: AWB (Accton Wireless Broadband) US210 WiMAX USB adapter, using Beceem chips, and works with any network ID –Summary: debug monitor, useful to capture client RSSI, limited use on windows platform Linux PC with Intel 5150/6250 mini-PCI express card WiMAX modem. Samsung NC10 and Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Android handset with WIMAX capability

9 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation WiMAX Mobile Station: Linux PC Linux PC with Intel 5150/6250 mini- PCI express card WiMAX modem –Examples: Samsung NC10, Dell Inspiron Mini 10 –Open-source driver, can work with any network ID –Full support for custom applications –Full support for OMF/OML applications and control, including image loading –Summary: Currently the most capable client Intel 5150/6250 mini-PCI express card with Linux driver

10 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation WiMAX Mobile Station: Android Handset Android handset with WIMAX capability –Example: HTC EVO 4G handset, sold by Sprint –As sold, locked to Sprint; how to allow connection to GENI network? –How to support custom applications? –How to support OMF/OML applications and control? –Summary: Very attractive for certain uses; working to resolve issues

11 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation BBN OMF/OML Setup

12 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation BBN Experiments: Internet Access Internet access –Default slice –Mobile associates, after matching with entry in access list –Mobile gets added to default slice, starts UL traffic –Allows browsing, etc., from mobile, and verifies basic functionality –Status: Working Physical BTS ASN-GW Air Interface Internet

13 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation Next Steps BBN is here to help Evaluate what can be done Contribute new capabilities
