Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN). As such it implements the GPRS Mobility Management (GMM) and SM (Session Management).

The SGSN implements
  • the Gb interface to the BSS's (like the OsmoPCU or an ip.access nanoBTS)
  • the Gp interface with its GTP protocol to one or more Gateway GPRS Support Node (GGSN) like OsmoGGSN.
  • the IuPS interface with its RANAP protocol to onre or more RNCs or HNB-GWs like OsmoHNBGW

OsmoSGSN is available from the repository. In order to build it, you will need a libgtp installation from the
OsmoGGSN project.
