OsmoBTS is building up on work done previosuly for [wiki:OpenBSC] (RSL, OML, RTP) and [http://bb.osmocom.org OsmocomBB] (LAPDm). A-bis/IP implementation is heavily inspired by ip.access nanoBTS A-bis/IP implementation.

OsmoBTS is written in a re-targettable way, i.e. it should be relatively easy to target a new BTS hardware (i.e. BTS-side Layer 0 or Layer 1) with it.

So far OsmoBTS supports a number of hardware options:
17 3 ipse
 * Quad-band femto-BTS product called [http://www.sysmocom.de/products/sysmobts sysmoBTS] which is sold by [http://sysmocom.de/ sysmocom]
18 4 ipse
 * Wideband SDR transceiver hardware [https://code.google.com/p/umtrx/ UmTRX] sold by [https://fairwaves.ru fairwaves] and a number of other SDR transceivers, using OpenBTS transceiver software.
19 4 ipse
 * A pretty crazy experimental BTS hardware based on two OsmocomBB phones had originally been supported, but needs to be re-integrated with core code changes.
