Position in the network

The below graph shows the CBC in the network.

As can be seen, the CBC receives messages from third-party applications (called CBEs). It then routes/distributes/forwards those messages over the respective radio access technology specific method.



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.
