Description

The schedule needs to be attractive to users, both newbies as well as more experienced users.

We need a couple of talks and workshops around running the GSM / GPRS+EDGE / UMTS infrastructure.

Some random ideas:
  • running a basic circuit-switched GSM network
  • interfacing a VoIP operator and/or PBXs via SIP
  • running GPRS/EDGE data services with OsmoPCU, OsmoSGSN and OpenGGSN
  • fundamental GSM radio frequency planning
  • setting up + running "3G in a Box" with osmo-iuh, OsmoMSC, OsmoSGSN and OpenGGSN
  • GSUP + core network elements for roaming integration
  • using the osmocom control interface
  • efficiently investigate and report issues using wireshark, GSMTAP and libosmocore logging

Some more random ideas:

  • Osmocom infrastructure, redmine, git, gerrit, jenkins.. (the policy and tradition as much as the tech)
  • Hitchhikers guide to the code(s). Where are all the things? (in libosmocore, in openbsc in the libmsc, etc) for example, what if I would like to add a command to the vty?

A "state of things" would probably be good too. Something listing what works now, fully supported, what's experimental and what's planned for the future so that you know what to expect.

+1 to suggestions from tnt and keith.

Should we also discuss who is presenting what?

One more suggestion to a list of talks: Using SDR hardware to run a GSM network aka a completely DIY GSM network.
Happy to present this one.

Thanks ofr the offer. However, I think it's not that different from
using other hardware with OsmoBTS and OsmoNITB & Co., the only
difference is some low-level configuration of OsmoBTS and that you have
to run OsmoTRX alongside.

Our focus in the introductory talks about running a cellular network is
on OsmoBTS and above, we will not cover details of any particular
hardware in those talks.

So if at all, we could do a comparison of different supported hardware,
but then we should be fair and try to cover all devices, from BS-11 to
Nokia InSite, MetroSite, to Ericsson RBS2000 to symsoBTS models, Nuran,
Octasic, USRP, UmTRX, etc.

I'm not sure we have time left in the agenda, but I think that would be
informative.
