@item{Upcoming changes
In the early fall of 2019, POWDER fixed endpoints will provide two
sets of NUC+SDR equipment (as outlined above) for experimental
use. Additionally, all four USRP B210 ports will be connected to
individual Taoglas GSA.8841 antennas. RF front-ends will be
deployed with a target PA gain of 2W and additional hardware
support for TDD mode operation using a single antenna. Details on
RF front-ends will be supplied once the designs are finalized and
deployed.
@section[#:tag "powder-iris-endpoints"]{Skylark IRIS Endpoints}
Skylark IRIS SDRs are deployed as endpoints in two eastern facing offices of
the Merrill Engineering Building. These are connected via 1 Gbps copper links.
