Good news for everyone who got no OsmoCon2017 tickets or were otherwise unable to attend: Video recordings of all OsmoCon talks are available at C3VOC (direct search link). Enjoy introductions to, news on and real life reports around the Osmocom mobile communication stack. Great work by the VOC, thanks!
We are happy to announce that the OsmoCon2017 schedule has just become even more exciting with the addition of two talks on two projects that relate to Osmocom: OpenCellular (as a hardware platform to run OsmoBTS, OsmoBSC, OsmoNITB, ...) and Community Cellular Manager as a software to manage Osmocom-based cellular networks.
Community Cellular Manager¶
CCM is a software management and deployment suite enabling the operation of small-scale cellular networks that can also be used with the OpenCellular platform we announced in June. It makes it possible for organizations with limited technical capacity to leverage OpenCellular or third-party radio access network (RAN) solutions to build small-scale cellular networks in their own communities. See here for more information (and source code!).

OpenCellular is an open source and cost-effective, software-defined wireless access platform (for GSM BTS and other standards), aimed to improve connectivity in remote areas of the world. See here for more information about OpenCellular.

OsmoCon 2017 updates¶
There are some updates related to OsmoCon2017, the first Osmocom Conference, held on April 21st, 2017 in Berlin, Germany.
Summary¶Summary (for those too busy to read the full post):
- Schedule of talks has been released
- Travel Grants available for participants who are otherwise unable to travel to Berlin
- Social Event details available, including menu
- April 21st is approaching fast, make sure you get your Ticket in time. Limited number of seats available.
Schedule has been release¶
The list of talks with their abstracts has been on the website for quite some time, but now we actually have put together a schedule based on those talks.
Please see OsmoCon2017 for the schedule.
As you can see, the day is fully packed with talks about Osmocom cellular infrastructure projects. We had to cut some talk slots short (30min instead of 45min), but I'm confident that it is good to cover a wider range of topics, while at the same time avoiding fragmenting the audience with multiple tracks.
We are happy to announce that we have received donations to permit for providing travel grants!
This means that any attendee who is otherwise not able to cover their travel to OsmoCon 2017 (e.g. because their interest in Osmocom is not related to their work, or because their employer doesn't pay the travel expenses) can now apply for such a travel grant.
Tech Talks are nice and fine, but what many people enjoy even more at conferences is the informal networking combined with good food. For this, we have the social event at night, which is open to all attendees.
See more details about it at OsmoCon2017_SocialEvent.
