[[OsmoTRX]] is a software-defined radio transceiver that implements the Layer 1 physical layer of a BTS comprising the following 3GPP specifications:
7 41 sylvain
* TS 05.01 "Physical layer on the radio path"
8 41 sylvain
* TS 05.02 "Multiplexing and Multiple Access on the Radio Path"
9 41 sylvain
* TS 05.04 "Modulation"
10 41 sylvain
* TS 05.10 "Radio subsystem synchronization"

[[OsmoTRX]] is based on the transceiver code from the [[OsmoBTS:OpenBTS]] project, but setup to operate independently with the purpose of using with non-OpenBTS software and projects, while still maintaining backwards compatibility with [[OsmoBTS:OpenBTS]]. Currently there are numerous features contained in [[OsmoTRX:]] that extend the functionality of the [[OsmoBTS:OpenBTS]] transceiver. These features include enhanced support for various embedded platforms - notably ARM - and dual channel diversity support for the Fairwaves [[umtrx:]].

h2. Embedded Platform Support
53 62 laforge
54 62 laforge
[[OsmoTRX]] has been tested on the multiple embedded platforms representing a wide range of device types. Low cost ARM devices are generally limited by memory and I/O as much CPU utilization.
55 62 laforge
56 62 laforge
Running a full or near full ARFCN configuration (7 simultaneous TCH channels with Combination V) may require running the GSM stack remotely, which can be configured at runtime on the command line. This limitation appears to be scheduling related more so than lack of CPU resources, and may be resolved at a later time.

70 41 sylvain
*Intel SSE Support*
71 6 ttsou
* SSE3
72 6 ttsou
* SSE4.1
73 20 ttsou
74 41 sylvain
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.
75 1 ttsou
76 20 ttsou
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. Support is automatically detected at build time. For additional performance information, please see the performance and benchmarks section.
77 29 ttsou
78 41 sylvain
*ARM Support*
79 1 ttsou
* NEON
80 1 ttsou
* NEON-VFPv4
81 20 ttsou
82 41 sylvain
[[OsmoTRX]] runs on a variety of ARM processors with and without NEON coprocessors. Like SSE on Intel processors, NEON provides acceleration with SIMD vectorized instructions.
83 20 ttsou
84 1 ttsou
Tested popular architectures include ARM11 (Raspberry Pi), Cortex-A8 (!BeagleBoard), and Cortex-A15 (!ArndaleBoard). Loosely speaking, these platforms are representative of low cost embedded devices, mid-level handsets, and high-end smartphones respectively. Similarly, in order, these platforms include no NEON coprocessor, standard NEON, and NEON-VFPv4. The latter NEON variation, VFPv4, provides additional fused-multiply-accumulate (FMA) instructions useful for many DSP operations.
85 1 ttsou
86 26 ttsou
NEON support must be enabled by the user at build time. For additional information, please see the configuration and performance and benchmarks sections.
87 37 ttsou
88 41 sylvain
*Dual Channel (UmTRX and B210)*
89 7 ttsou
90 1 ttsou
Two dual channel modes are available: standard dual channel mode and diversity. In standard dual channel mode, each RF
91 28 ttsou
path of the dual channel device supports a different ARFCN. Each path operates independently a
92 1 ttsou
nd operates similarly to two separate devices. GSM channel capacity in this mode is doubled. This option can be configured at run time from the command line.
93 1 ttsou
94 41 sylvain
*Dual Channel Diversity (UmTRX, experimental)*
95 1 ttsou
96 28 ttsou
Diversity mode is similar to the standard dual channel mode except each antenna supports both ARFCN channels. In this case, the receiver sample bandwidth is widened to handle both ARFCN's and subsequently converted and demultiplexed into separate sample streams. Each GSM receive path is fed dual signals, where antenna selection diversity is performed by taking the stronger signal on a burst-by-burst basis. This diversity setup improves uplink reception performance in multipath fading environments.
97 16 ttsou
98 28 ttsou
Limitations are increased CPU utilization and that ARFCN spacing is restricted (currently at 400 kHz) by the receiver sampling bandwidth. Setting the ARFCN spacing beyond the sampling limit will disable the diversity path and operate in standard dual channel mode. This options can be configured at run time from the command line.

100 1 ttsou
*Uplink Burst Detection*
101 41 sylvain
102 1 ttsou
[[OsmoTRX]] utilizes an updated receive burst detection algorithm that provides greater sensitivity and reliability than the original [[OsmoBTS:OpenBTS]] approach, which relied on energy detection for the initial stage of burst acquisition.
103 1 ttsou
104 50 neels
The limitation of the previous approach was that it was slow to adapt to highly transient power levels and false burst detection in challenging situations such as receiver saturation, which may occur in close range lab testing. The other issue was that a high degree of level tuning was often necessary to operate reliably.
105 41 sylvain
106 1 ttsou
The current receiver code addressed those limitations for improved performance in a wider variety of environments.

*Low Phase Error Modulator*
109 41 sylvain
110 1 ttsou
The default GSM downlink signal is configured for low distortion using a linearized GMSK modulator. The implementation is based on a two pulse Laurent approximation of continuous phase modulated (CPM) signals. The baseband output signal measures with very low phase error and is capable of passing industry spectrum mask requirements. Please note that actual performance will depend strongly on the particular device in use.

Theoretical details can be found in the report on "GMSK":http://tsou.cc/gsm/report_gmsk.pdf. Octave / Matlab code for "pulse generation":http://tsou.cc/gsm/laurent.m is also available.

159 1 ttsou
160 48 neels
Unless using USRP1, you will need the Universal Hardware Driver (UHD),
161 48 neels
which is available from Ettus Research or Fairwaves; the UHD implementation
162 48 neels
must match your hardware:

164 48 neels
* Ettus Research UHD for USRP devices
165 51 neels
* Fairwaves UHD with [[UmTRX:]]
166 48 neels
* USRP1 does not use the UHD driver, it is supported through the legacy libusrp driver provided in GNU Radio 3.4.2.

h3. UHD for Debian
169 48 neels
170 52 neels
When you are reading this, Debian packages for UHD may be sufficient for running osmo-trx and osmo-bts-trx.
171 48 neels
here are some of the packages that need to be installed:
172 48 neels
173 48 neels
<pre>

*Troubleshooting:*
178 55 wirelesss
 
179 52 neels
At the time of writing this (2016-12), for Debian 8 aka jessie you need to use the jessie-backports packages:
180 52 neels
181 52 neels
<pre>
182 52 neels
sudo -s
183 52 neels
echo "deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/uhd.list
184 52 neels
apt-get update
185 52 neels
apt-get -t jessie-backports install libuhd-dev uhd-host
186 52 neels
</pre>
187 52 neels
188 52 neels
It may also be possible to use the pothos PPA instead:
189 48 neels
190 48 neels
<pre>
191 48 neels
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:guruofquality/pothos
192 48 neels

195 48 neels
196 53 neels
h3. Firmware
197 48 neels
198 48 neels
You also need to download the firmware using a script provided by the UHD package.
199 48 neels
Instructions suggest running the script as root, but this way is less dangerous:
200 48 neels
201 48 neels
<pre>
202 48 neels
sudo mkdir /usr/share/uhd
203 48 neels
sudo chown $USER: /usr/share/uhd
204 48 neels
/usr/lib/uhd/utils/uhd_images_downloader.py
205 48 neels
</pre>
206 48 neels
207 63 pespin
You can flash the FPGA data you just downloaded with the following command, setting type and other parameters accordingly to your hw. For instance for an Ettus B200:
208 63 pespin
<pre>
209 63 pespin
uhd_image_loader --args="type=b200"
210 63 pespin
</pre>
211 63 pespin
212 63 pespin
The uhd_image_loader claims it can update the firmware too, but at least on some versions it does nothing when asked to update firmware. If you see no output of firwmare being flashed, you can use this other command line to flash the firmware, adapting it to the firmware file of your HW:
213 63 pespin
<pre>
214 63 pespin
/usr/lib/uhd/utils/b2xx_fx3_utils --load-fw /usr/share/uhd/images/usrp_b200_fw.hex

This configuration mainly targets the Raspberry Pi. ARM platforms without NEON vector units are almost always very slow processors, and generally not very suitable for running [[OsmoTRX]]. Running [[OsmoTRX]] on a Raspberry Pi, however, is possible along with limited TCH (voice) channel support. Currently this configuration requires minor code changes.

[[OsmoTRX]] is fully compatible with [[OsmoBTS:OpenBTS]] for voice and SMS services. Due to differences in handing of GPRS, [[OsmoTRX]] does not support GPRS when used with [[OsmoBTS:OpenBTS]], however, GPRS with the Osmocom stack is supported.

For use with [[OsmoBTS:OpenBTS]], enable the filler table option "Enable C0 filler table", which enables [[OsmoBTS:OpenBTS]] style idle bursts and retransmissions.

The [[OsmoTRX]] transceiver should be started before running [[OsmoBTS:OpenBTS]]. No symbolic link to './transceiver' should exist in the [[OsmoBTS:OpenBTS]] directory. This prevents [[OsmoBTS:OpenBTS]] from starting its own transceiver instance.

[[OsmoTRX]] is currently maintained by Tom Tsou and Alexander Chemeris among others. The code is derived from the [[OsmoBTS:OpenBTS]] project, which was originally developed by David Burgess and Harvind Samra at Range Networks.
