Open-source 4G radio

It's time to start WiMAX and LTE hacking

We will walk through a PHY level of mobile WiMAX and outline common and different parts with LTE. Surprisingly, the WiMAX PHY level is not as hard as you may think. We will also present our effort to create an open-source implementation of 4G radio modem.

4G is being rolled out widely, but there is no open-source implementation of a 4G radio system yet. To change this situation we've started working on an open-source 4G PHY level implementation and we want to invite wider hacker community to join the effort.

Presentation will consist of the following parts:

  1. An introduction to the mobile WiMAX PHY level, giving a bird's-eye view of its levels and main principles.
  2. Review of similarities and differences between mobile WiMAX and LTE PHY levels.
  3. First time presentation to the hacker community of our open-source WiMAX scanner and overall effort to create an open-source 4G implementation.
