OsmoTRX is a software-defined radio transceiver that implements the Layer 1 physical layer of a BTS comprising the following 3GPP specifications:
4 1 ttsou
 * TS 05.01 "Physical layer on the radio path"
5 1 ttsou
 * TS 05.02 "Multiplexing and Multiple Access on the Radio Path"
6 1 ttsou
 * TS 05.04 "Modulation"
7 1 ttsou
 * TS 05.10 "Radio subsystem synchronization"

OsmoTRX is based on the OpenBTS transceiver, but setup to operate independently with the purpose of using with non-OpenBTS software and projects. Currently there are numerous features contained in OsmoTRX that extend the functionality of the OpenBTS transceiver. These features include enhanced support for embedded platforms - notably ARM - and dual channel diversity support for the Fairwaves UmTRX. Most of these features will eventually be merged into mainline OpenBTS, but primary development will occur on OsmoTRX.

On Intel processors, OsmoTRX makes heavy use of the Streaming SIMD Extensions (SSE) instruction set. Accelerated operations include pulse shape filtering, resampling, sequence correlation, and many other signal processing operations. SSE3 is the minimum requirement for accelerated use. SSE3 is present in the majority of Intel processors since later versions of the Pentium 4 architecture and is also present on low power Atom processors.
