    13     1. 370+ W Power supply
     13  || 1. || 370+ W Power supply ||  Even though Airspan 2.X Ghz operation has a maximum consumption of 370 Watts, -48V power supply rated for 450W is suggested. One candidate is [http://www.jameco.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10001_10001_2105164_-1 Mean Well SE-450-48]. ||
     14  || 2. || Power cable with custom connector (shipped with airspan BS) || [[Image(Air4gPS.jpg, width=200, align=right)]] This power cable is an unearthed DC cable and is approx 75 feet long. If that is long enough, it should be attached to the power supply as shown in figure 1;  in case longer cable is needed, use an off the shelf 18AWG 3C cable and solder it together to reach the power source. ||
     15  || 3. || Appropriate length weatherproof CAT5E/CAT6 cable. || Bulk cable candidate for outdoor use is [http://www.cdw.com/shop/products/BELKIN-1000ft-CAT5E-DIRECT-BURIAL-CABLE/1302244.aspx Belkin Direct Burial Cable]. Once cable is in place, Ethernet RJ45 connectors have to be placed at both ends; make sure that the Ethernet cable is passed through the "Weatherproof Ethernet connector" (shipped with airspan), before the head is put on. ||

     22=== BS Basic Configuration ===
     23
     24Air4G-W24 base station has a built in web based interface and default IP 192.168.0.100
     25
     26Connect the Ethernet cable to a network switch. Configure the auxiliary PC with an IP address in the 192.168.0.xxx range
     27(e.g. 192.168.0.xxx subnet 255.255.255.0). BS is configured to come up with a default address of 192.168.0.100; in order to reconfigure it, visit the web interface (192.168.0.100) with:

     34The setup consists of 3 screens which can be selected with the links on the left menu:
     35
     36 || General Configuration: configure the BS Id with the combination of [wiki:WiMAX/00/01#a1.4WiMAXOIDandIPAddressAssignment first three hex digits from the  GENI OID and the last three based on your campus address assignment]. || [[Image(A4GGeneralSetup.jpg, width=300, align=right)]] ||
     37 || SNMP Configuration: In addition to read and write community strings, one should specify trap destination IP address to match your controller IP address. || [[Image(A4GManagemenSetup.jpg, width=300, align=right)]] ||
     38 || Management IP Configuration: Enter controller PC IP address as well as subnet mask and IP address of the default gateway. Management VLAN support and corresponding VLAN should be also configured. NOTE: If using trunk to connect the BS, it is quite important to make sure that the switch port to which the BS is connected has appropriate handling for untagged packets (i.e. that it labels untagged packets with the management VLAN). || [[Image(A4GSNMPSetup.jpg, width=300, align=right)]]||
