5.3.3 Install Required Packages ¶

  1. Configure apt/sources to include and Edit the /etc/apt/sources.list and add the following lines:
          deb karmic/
          deb jaunty main
  1. Update information based on the changed sources.list.

  sudo apt-get update
  1. Now install the ASN-GW software

   sudo apt-get install asn-gw0.9.0 click1.6.0 omf-wimaxrf-aggmgr-5.2

5.6 Configuration of ASN-GW Controller

Configuration of software both for the ASN-GW and the WiMAX BTS is done through a single yaml configuration file on the ASN.

To enable the features we will need to copy the modified wimaxrf.yaml from /etc/omf-aggmgr-5.2/available to /etc/omf-aggmgr-5.2/enabled/. Remove all other services that are pre-installed in /etc/omf-aggmgr-5.2/enabled/ as the other services are used in Case 2 installation.

Execute the init-wimax.rb file. The file imports all MIBs into local libraries. This needs to be done only once during initialization.

ruby /usr/share/omf-aggmgr-5.2/omf-aggmgr/ogs_wimaxrf/init-wimax.rb

5.8.4 WimaxRF Grid Service operation ¶

  1. Start the omf aggregate manager. This is required for the grid service to be in operation.
/etc/init.d/omf-aggmgr-5.2 restart
  1. Check the service starts by looking at the process table as well as tailing the logs
root     31394     1  0 Jan24 ?        00:08:53 ruby1.8 -I/usr/share/omf-aggmgr-5.2 -I/usr/share/omf-common-5.2 /usr/share/omf-aggmgr-5.2/omf-aggmgr/ogs.rb --port 5052

  1. Start a web browser on the asn_gw. Make sure the WimaxRf? grid service is working.


  1. The web page has all the commands the service supports
<service name="get">
<info>Get Basestation Static Parameter</info>
<service name="info">
<info>Get information about the Base Station</info>
<service name="restart">
<info>Restart the Base Station</info>
<service name="restore">
