The GENI Wide-Area Wireless project uses WiMAX basestations from two vendors: radio as part of an open virtualized experimental framework. The project leverages a commercial 802.16e base stations from NEC and Airpsan, replacing the standard WiMAX controller with an open software implementation that supports virtualization and layer 2/3 programmability. The most prominent features provided by the modified BS control framework include the capability to perform all frame switching using purely layer 2 information, and control mechanisms to provide isolation across slices, which is needed to ensure experiment repeatability.
