Support of Mikrotik LTE devices in Osmocom projects
I found an offer of nano cells manufactured by MikroTik. They named it InterCell Series. These devices are firmly tuned to one band and typically have a 2x10W output power. It seems that it is available in regular WiFi e-shops for a retail price of € 1,717 (inc.VAT).
Has anyone considered linking this unit to Osmo-CNI?
I apologize if my post violated the rules.

The Mikrotik InterCell are pure LTE devices (eNodeB). As such, you cannot connect them to a 2G/3G core as Osmocom.
However, you should be able to connect them to our partner project nextepc (https://github.com/open5gs/nextepc).
Another problem with the InterCell is that they are not available yet (you can order them, but with long lead time), and they only operate in rather obscure bands which are supported only by few phones.
btw: This kind of question would be best raised/discussed at our mailing lists, not in the bug tracker.
