By Fall 2008, the MAXWell Lab will be a fully-featured wireless operator, supporting both the
mobile WiMAX air interface and back-end management using the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS).
The network supports backhaul of 802.16e traffic over 802.16d. The deployment plan is as follows:
- Spring 2008: 802.16d Installation
- Summer 2008: 802.16e Installation
- Fall 2008: IMS Integration
- Future: Expansion of Mobile Base Stations
Additionally the lab has a variety of test and measurement tools, for both 802.16 PHY/MAC
and Network/Application analysis.
