    317 == Testing ==
    318 
    319 === Simple Checks ===
    320 
    321 A few simple checks to make sure things are working:
    322  1. You should be able to ping the Base Station, it was assigned the fixed IP 192.168.1.10.
    323  1. Some log files should start filling up in '''/var/log''':
    324   1. asnctrl.log
    325   1. epctrl.log
    326  1. There should also be a green light on the IDU after a software power cycle of the IDU. The software power cycle can be preformed by the following commands:
     325== 5.7  Configuration of CLICK ==
     326
     327Configuration of the CLICK router is done by SAM.rb.
     328
     329Here is an example configuration when no MSs are registered:
     330
     331(sample)
     332
     333Here is an example configuration when one MS is registered:
     334
     335
     336== 5.8 Operations and Testing ==
     337
     338
     339=== 5.8.1 Login to Base Station Server ===
     340
     341Login through the console on the Base Station Server (ASN-GW) and test the following.
     342
     3431. Is the BTS is reachable from the ASN-GW. with the default IP setting
     344    - ping the BTS interface; it was assigned the fixed IP 192.168.1.10.
     345    - measure the round trip times
     346
     3472. Power cycle the BTS through the use of stop and start scripts.
     348   - Perform a hard reset if required (if updated parameter values are not reflected).
     349   - There should also be a green light on the IDU after a software power cycle of the IDU.
     350   - The software power cycle can be preformed by the following commands:
    327351    {{{
    328352    /etc/init.d/asn-gw stop
    329353    /etc/init.d/asn-gw start
    330354    }}}
     355
     3563. Ping the outside interface and see if the DMZ gateway is reachable from the ASN-GW
     357
     358After successful completion we know that the ASN is able to send traffic both downlink to the IDU
     359and outbound towards the internet.
     360
     361
     362=== 5.8.2  Login to BTS ===
     363
     364 1.  To login:  (sample)
     365
     366 2. Power cycle the BTS through the use of stop and start scripts.
     367   - Perform a hard reset if required (if updated parameter values are not reflected).
     368   - There should also be a green light on the IDU after a software power cycle of the IDU.
     369   - The software power cycle can be preformed by the following commands:
     370    {{{
     371    /etc/init.d/asn-gw stop
     372    /etc/init.d/asn-gw start
     373    }}}
     374
     375
     376=== 5.8.3  ASN GW Operation ===
     377
     378
     379To control the WiMAX base station, run the stop and start scripts as follows:
     380
     381Start script:
     382{{{
     383/etc/init.d/snmpd start
     384/etc/rc.d/init.d/trapctrl start
     385sleep 1
     386/etc/rc.d/init.d/asnctrl start
     387sleep 1
     388/etc/rc.d/init.d/epctrl start
     389#sleep 1
     390}}}
     391
     392
     393Stop script:
     394{{{
     395/etc/rc.d/init.d/epctrl stop
     396/etc/rc.d/init.d/asnctrl stop
     397/etc/rc.d/init.d/trapctrl stop
     398/etc/init.d/snmpd stop
     399pkill -9 asnctrl
     400pkill -9 epctrl
     401}}}
     402
     403A few simple checks to make sure things are working:
     404
     405
    331406 1. There should be 3 running processes:
    332407    {{{
     
    336411    }}}
    337412
    338 
    339 === Prerequisites ===
    340 
    341 1. Confirm that all hardware and software has been properly installed.
    342 
    343 
    344 === Hardware connectivity check ===
    345 
    346 Login through the console on the ASN-GW and test the following.
    347 
    348 1. Is the BTS is reachable from the ASN-GW. with the default IP setting
    349     - ping the BTS interface
    350     - measure the round trip times
    351 
    352 2. Power cycle the BTS through the use of stop and start scripts.
    353    - Perform a hard reset if required (if updated parameter values are not reflected).
    354 
    355 3. Ping the outside interface and see if the DMZ gateway is reachable from the ASN-GW
    356 
    357 After successful completion we know that the ASN is able to send traffic both downlink to the IDU
    358 and outbound towards the internet.
    359 
    360 === Test the RF Transmission ===
     413 1. Some log files should start filling up in '''/var/log''':
     414  1. asnctrl.log
     415  1. epctrl.log
     416
     417
     418
     419=== 5.8.4 RF Transmission ===
    361420
    3624211. Scan on the client and check if the basestation's signal is seen using the procedure described below. If we are able to connect step 2 can be ignored. Else try step 2.
     
    3734322. If possible sweep the spectrum through an analyzer to determine proper transmission at the center frequency.
    374433   - Vary transmit power at the BTS using wiset calls on the BTS or through the web interface and then measure the corresponding changes on the analyzer.
