About OpenBSC
=============
-OpenBSC is a minimalistic implementation of the GSM Network, with particular
-emphasis on the functionality typically provided by the BSC, MSC, HLR, VLR.
+OpenBSC is a minimalistic implementation of the GSM Network, with

+MSC, HLR, VLR and SMSC.
-Its only current interface is a mISDN based E1 interface utilizing the A-bis
-protocol between BSC and BTS. In other words, you can connect an existing
-GSM Base Transceiver Station (BTS) through E1 to OpenBSC.
+Its currently supported interfaces towards the BTS are:
-So far, it has only been tested with the Siemens microBTS BS-11. Test reports
-with other BTS are appreciated!

This project is still in its early days, and there are lots of areas where it
doesn't behave as per GSM spec.

+libosmocore
+===========
+
+Please note that as of March 2010, OpenBSC has a dependency to a library
+called "libosmocore". You can obtain that library from
+
+ git://git.osmocom.org/libosmocore.git
