osmo-bts - Osmocom BTS Implementation
====================================

This repository contains a C-language implementation of a GSM Base
Transceiver Station (BTS). It is part of the
[Osmocom](https://osmocom.org/) Open Source Mobile Communications
project.

This code implements Layer 2 and higher of a more or less conventional GSM BTS
(Base Transceiver Station) - however, using an Abis/IP interface, rather than
the old-fashioned E1/T1.

Specifically, this includes
 * BTS-side implementation of TS 08.58 (RSL) and TS 12.21 (OML)
 * BTS-side implementation of LAPDm (using libosmocore/libosmogsm)
 * A somewhat separated interface between those higher layer parts and the
   Layer1 interface.

Several kinds of BTS hardware are supported:
 * sysmocom sysmoBTS
 * Octasic octphy
 * Nutaq litecell 1.5
 * software-defined radio based osmo-bts-trx (e.g. USRP B210, UmTRX)

GIT Repository
--------------

You can clone from the official osmo-bts.git repository using

	git clone git://git.osmocom.org/osmo-bts.git

There is a cgit interface at http://git.osmocom.org/osmo-bts/

Known Limitations
=================

As of March 17, 2017, the following known limitations exist in this
implementation:

Common Core
-----------

 * No Extended BCCH support
 * System Information limited to 1,2,2bis,2ter,2quater,3,4,5,6,9,13
 * No RATSCCH in AMR
 * Will reject TS 12.21 STARTING TIME in SET BTS ATTR / SET CHAN ATTR
 * No support for frequency hopping
 * No reporting of interference levels as part of TS 08.58 RF RES IND
 * No error reporting in case PAGING COMMAND fails due to queue overflow
 * No use of TS 08.58 BS Power and MS Power parameters
 * No support of TS 08.58 MultiRate Control
 * No support of TS 08.58 Supported Codec Types
 * No support of Bter frame / ENHANCED MEASUREMENT REPORT

osmo-bts-sysmo
--------------

 * No CSD / ECSD support (not planned)
 * GSM-R frequency band supported, but no NCH/ASCI/SoLSA
 * All timeslots on one TRX have to use same training sequence (TSC)
 * No multi-TRX support yet, though hardware+L1 support stacking
 * Makes no use of 12.21 Intave Parameters and Interference
   Level Boundaries
 * MphConfig.CNF can be returned to the wrong callback. E.g. with Tx Power
   and ciphering. The dispatch should take a look at the hLayer3.

osmo-bts-octphy
---------------

 * No support of EFR, HR voice codec (lack of PHY support?)
 * No re-transmission of PHY primitives in case of time-out
 * Link Quality / Measurement processing incomplete
 * impossible to modify encryption parameters using RSL MODE MODIFY
 * no clear indication of nominal transmit power, various power related
   computations are likely off
 * no OML attribute validation during bts_model_check_oml()

osmo-bts-trx
------------

 * TCH/F_PDCH cannel not working as voice (https://osmocom.org/issues/1865)
 * No BER value delivered to OsmoPCU (https://osmocom.org/issues/1855)
 * No 11bit RACH support (https://osmocom.org/issues/1854)
 * No CBCH support (https://osmocom.org/issues/1617)
