Along with the development of the mobile WiMAX base station, we also developed an Element Management System (EMS) for management of base station installation, operation, and maintenance. The EMS has many features that make mobile WiMAX system management easier, such as pop-up GUI windows for the setup and testing of base stations, overall management of complex and advanced base station configuration parameters, display of topology of active mobile stations with their wireless conditions and mobility status by handovers, and scheduling function of firmware and software update for widely deployed multiple base stations. This paper introduces the EMS features and the GUI.
