Name changed from WiMAX/03Installation/03Test to WiMAX/28

Testing The Installation

Prerequisites

  1. Confirm that all hardware and software has been properly installed.

Hardware connectivity check

Login through the console on the ASN-GW and test the following.

  1. Is the BTS is reachable from the ASN-GW. with the default IP setting
    • ping the BTS interface
    • measure the round trip times
  1. Power cycle the BTS through the use of stop and start scripts.
    • Perform a hard reset if required (if updated parameter values are not reflected).
  1. Ping the outside interface and see if the DMZ gateway is reachable from the ASN-GW

After successful completion we know that the ASN is able to send traffic both downlink to the IDU and outbound towards the internet.

Test the RF Transmission

  1. 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.

Configure driver at the client to ensure all required parameters are configured correctly.

  • Change the /etc/asnctrl_service_class.conf to include client and service class information.
  • possibly include SSID to match with the BTS
  • Check center frequency to match with the BTS
  • Enable (locks) if any
  • Disable wifi if operating on a dual mode card (since quite a few times they work in a mutually exclusive mode)
  • Enable a static IP setting at the client to allow for baseline IP connectivity
  1. If possible sweep the spectrum through an analyzer to determine proper transmission at the center frequency.
    • 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.
