2 Agenda Brief background Extending GENI/Wireless with commercial networks Demo discussion Demo wrap up GENI: Global Environment for Network Innovations Please Participate in a Survey!!!
GENI WiMAX Deployments 2014 Researcher-owned, researcher-operated 4G cellular systems 13 locations across USA 26 Wimax Base Stations Sliced, virtualized and interconnected On the Air Not On the Air
SciWiNet: A Brief Summary SciWiNet resells cellular data services from Sprint. We are an Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO). We expect to also operate with T-Mobile in 4Q Usage model: a single bucket of data can be shared over any number of devices, individual researchers can be given administrative access to their set of devices. The idea is to provide services and technology that can be used by the academic research community Once fully operational User’s can bring their own devices (like Google’s Nexus 5) User’s sign up and register devices at the SciWiNet web site Wireless Research Community CISE Research Community Engineering Domain Specific Research Community Non-Engineering Research Community Diversity of the User Community Diversity of Underlying Requirements
Internet NIH Research DOE Research DOT/ITS Research Public Safety/ Homeland Security Research Wireless Testbed Infrastructure Commercial Wireless Systems Infrastructure GI GENI Testbed (geni.net) sciwinet.org NSF Research Biological Sciences, CISE, Education/HR, Engineering, Geosciences, Math/Physical sciences, Social/Economic Sciences The goal of SciWiNet is to build wireless infrastructure that supports current and emerging wireless requirements of the academic research community. Synergistic with GENI WiMAX…. Extends the coverage for GENI researchers…. Broadens the community…potential benefits of scale
GENI WiMAX/SciWiNet Demo GENI WiMAX Sprint MVNO 3G/ WiMAX Legend GENI-enabled hardware Layer 3 SciWiNet MVNO Layer 2 GENI Dataplane Public Internet WiMAX-local VLAN 760 Android handset w/ SciWiNet tools App GENI Backbone WiMAX-multipoint VLAN At Clemson, we have a GENI WiMAX handset that has access to SciWiNet 2.A student at Clemson will move out of WiMAX coverage and into Sprint’s network 3. The device is periodically sending location, signal strength and ping RTT data to a server (a GENI VM) 4.We will show two live visualizations: location/access network, ping RTT time series. 5.You can point your browser to see the live map (http: point your browser at )
7 Demo Wrap Up Objective for this portion of the demo- illustrate how GENI/WiMAX experiments can be extended with coverage from a commercial network GENI and SciWiNet : GENI/WiMAX handsets that are registered on SciWiNet can work on: Sprint’s WiMAX and 3G network A yellow node or PCEngine box can use GENI WiMAX dongles, SciWiNet LTE dongles, and WiFi As GENI Wireless evolves towards LTE, integration with SciWiNet over Sprint’s LTE (and T-Mobile) will happen Our next demo will further show the exciting ‘connections’ that are possible between GENI/Wireless and SciWiNet.
