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.

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.
