OsmoSGSN (also spelled {{{osmo-sgsn}}} when referring to the program name) is a Free Software implementation of the GPRS
5 1 laforge
Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN).  As such it implements the GPRS Mobility Management (GMM) and SM (Session Management).

The SGSN connects via the Gb-Interface to the BSS (e.g. the ip.access nanoBTS), and it connects via the GTP protocol
8 1 laforge
to a Gateway GPRS Support Node (GGSN) like [wiki:OpenGGSN].

It is currently very experimental.  The Gb protocol stack and the LLC implementation are quite robust, and signalling
11 1 laforge
for GMM and SM seems to run pretty fine.  However, the user plane including SNDCP fragmentation is in pre-alpha quality.

OsmoSGSN is part of the openbsc git repository.  In order to build it, you will need a libgtp installation from the
14 1 laforge
OpenGGSN project.
