OsmoBTS is an Open Source GSM BTS (Base Transceiver Station) with A-bis/IP interface. It implements support for a variety of PHY/Hardware, such as sysmocom sysmoBTS, OCTSDR-2G and LiteCell 1.5, but also general-purpose SDR boards such as USRP or LimeSDR via OsmoTRX.

Binary Packages

Osmocom provides binary packages for several flavors of Debian and Ubuntu GNU/Linux on a variety of architectures (i586, x86_64, armhf, armv7l). Unless you are a software developer interested in developing on Osmocom, it is recommended you use those packages instead of building from source.
