OsmoTRX is a software-defined radio transceiver that implements the Layer 1 physical layer of a BTS comprising the following 3GPP specifications:

 * TS 05.01 "Physical layer on the radio path"

 * TS 05.02 "Multiplexing and Multiple Access on the Radio Path"

 * TS 05.04 "Modulation"

 * 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.

Dual Channel (UmTRX only)
24 6 ttsou
25 7 ttsou
Two dual channel modes are available: standard dual channel mode and diversity. In standard dual channel mode, each RF
26 7 ttsou
path of the dual channel device - currently only UmTRX - supports a different ARFCN. Each path operates independently a
27 7 ttsou
nd operates similarly to two separate devices. GSM channel capacity in this mode is doubled.

29 6 ttsou
Dual Channel Diversity (UmTRX only)
30 7 ttsou
31 7 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 t
32 7 ttsou
aking the stronger signal on a burst-by-burst basis. The limitations are that ARFCN spacing is restricted by the receiv
33 7 ttsou
e sampling bandwith (currently 400 kHz) and increased CPU utilization.
