Usage Example

To set AWGN on channel 36 at -30 dBm on all four antennas use the following sequence (either through a browser or wget). By default, the additional attenuation on all antennas is zero which means that the injected power is equally distributed. To create unequal distributions, users can use the antenna-atten-X option with the appropriate attenuation setting in dB to suppress noise in parts of the grid as desired

  • Step 1: Initialize the "interference" mode of the service
          wget "http://instrument1.orbit-lab.org:5054/interference/initialize"
    
  • Step 2: Select AWGN bandwidth (channel bw for 802.11a/b/g is 20 Mhz)
          wget "http://instrument1.orbit-lab.org:5054/interference/awgn?bandwidth=20"
    
  • Step 3: Set power level to -30 dBm and channel number to 36 (PLEASE AVOID SETTING POWER OVER 0dBm)
          wget "http://instrument1.orbit-lab.org:5054/interference/set?power=-30&channel=36"
    
  • Step 4: Start RF injection
          wget "http://instrument1.orbit-lab.org:5054/interference/start"
    

At the end of the experiment,

  • Step 5: Stop RF injection
          wget "http://instrument1.orbit-lab.org:5054/interference/stop"
