Add lchan and timeslot FSM charts to illustrate planning of how osmo-bsc should
handle lchan assignment and release.
Modify assignment, handover, lchan-release charts according to the new plan.
In doc/, add two message sequence charts with lots of implementation specifics,
to clarify the current code state. Mark various problems in red notes.
This chart and others should help to illustrate future code changes as I go
along refactoring handover, lchan allocation and adding inter-BSC handover.
osmo-bsc_nat is too heavily tied into legacy SCCPlite code, as it
is not using libosmo-sigtran/osmo_ss7 so far. It's also full of
customer-specific code and it's shared use of some libbsc code here
has been complicating osmo-bsc development.
The current plan is to continue to use osmo-bsc_nat from openbsc.git
for those legacy users that need it, and not use osmo-bsc_nat in
new 3GPP AoIP setups. Should we ever get a strong demand for an AoIP
based bsc_nat, we can still revisit this later.
Every setup should run with NECI = 1.
NECI = 0 is an ancient legacy setting.
There is a lot of dead code in osmo_bsc_msc.c that used to handle
the IPA multiplexed SSCP lite A interface.
- remove portions of the dead code
- remove IPA Ping related VTY commands
Handover decision 2 arguments are now configured by 'handover2 foo'. To match
that scheme, rename the previously 'handover foo' args for handover decision 1
to 'handover1 foo'.
For backwards compatibility, still provide aliases of the original VTY
commands. Writing back the config will result in 'handover1' though.
The network name and other MM INFO is controlled by the MSC, not the BSC.
The LU reject cause (like anything MM related) is under control of
OsmoMSC, not BSC.
RRLP is handled in OsmoMSC after the split from NITB, so let's remove
any bogus VTY commands left over in the BSC.
authentication (optional|required) is no longer needed, the
related decisions are now made in the HLR.
An upcoming VTY test requires a cfg that doesn't have handover values set.
Prepare for that by adding a minimal BSC config. It is a version further
stripped down from the Osmocom Network In The Box wiki page.
Authentication is no longer done in the BSC, the variables that
set the authentication policy and the IMSI regex have no longer
Remove auth policy and authorized-regexp
osmo-bsc now uses osmo-mgw to switch the RTP streams, but there
is no example configuration yet.
Add the missing example configuration.
Now osmo-bsc.cfg's SCCP addresses work by internal defaults, while
osmo-bsc_custom-sccp.cfg shows how to use custom STP IP address and SCCP point
These either remain from openbsc.git or slipped in while applying recent
patches from openbsc.git and do not belong in osmo-bsc.
Empty out contrib: remove things that are either obviously unrelated to
osmo-bsc, or seem old and/or esoteric.
osmoappdesc.py: drop nitb_e1_configs (and some ws)
In SGSN, actually place the port in the SGSN config by default, so that the
gsup port may now be omitted in the VTY config (the IP address suffices).
Adjust the osmo-sgsn.cfg example.

This was originally a long series of commits converging to the final result
seen in this patch. It does not make much sense to review the smaller steps'
trial and error, we need to review this entire change as a whole.
Implement AoIP in osmo-msc and osmo-bsc.
Change over to the new libosmo-sigtran API with support for proper
SCCP/M3UA/SCTP stacking, as mandated by 3GPP specifications for the IuCS and
From here on, a separate osmo-stp process is required for SCCP routing between

A number of the GSM timers (including T3109) had no reasonable
default values if not specified in the VTY / config file. Together
with unconditional writing to the config file, this created
config files with a persistent setting for important timers as '0'.
To make things worse, many of our example cofig files suffered from the
Let's avoid this from happening by
* having reasonable defaults if nothing specified in the config file
* conditionally savingg timers only if they differ from default
* reject any timer values that state zero during start-up (see previous
For the vty tests, add osmo-sgsn-accept-all.cfg (that does not need an HLR) and
use in vty_test_runner.py, otherwise the 'show sgsn' command will reply that it
could not connect to the HLR, failing the vty test which expects empty.
This helps in providing 3G software packages for the sysmoNITB hardware, which
uses 10.23.24.1 for SGSN and 10.23.24.2 for GGSN.
However, in order to not break the python tests, the osmo-sgsn.cfg example
still uses 127.0.0.1 as local address.
Change the GGSN address to 127.0.0.2, because SGSN and GGSN cannot co-exist on
the same address (the GTP port number is fixed by spec: no IE to communicate a
differing port, so it has to be the standard GTP port for both).
osmo-nitb becomes osmo-msc

Enable MSC specific CTRL commands, bsc_base_ctrl_cmds_install() still needs to

This is a long series of trial-and-error development collapsed in one patch.
This may be split in smaller commits if reviewers prefer that. If we can keep
it as one, we have saved ourselves the additional separation work.
The SQL based lookup of SMS for attached subscribers no longer works since the
SQL database no longer has the subscriber data. Replace with a round-robin on
the SMS recipient MSISDNs paired with a VLR subscriber RAM lookup whether the
subscriber is currently attached.
If there are many SMS for not-attached subscribers in the SMS database, this
will become inefficient: a DB hit returns a pending SMS, the RAM lookup will
reveal that the subscriber is not attached, after which the DB is hit for the
next SMS. It would become more efficient e.g. by having an MSISDN based hash
list for the VLR subscribers and by marking non-attached SMS recipients in the
SMS database so that they can be excluded with the SQL query already.
There is a sanity limit to do at most 100 db hits per attempt to find a pending
SMS. So if there are more than 100 stored SMS waiting for their recipients to
actually attach to the MSC, it may take more than one SMS queue trigger to
deliver SMS for subscribers that are actually attached.
This is not very beautiful, but is merely intended to carry us over to a time
when we have a proper separate SMSC entity.
Introduce gsm_subscriber_connection ref-counting in libmsc.
Remove/Disable VTY and CTRL commands to create subscribers, which is now a task
of the OsmoHLR. Adjust the python tests accordingly.

- bscs.config needed by the vty tests was not picked up as a dist file, because
its suffix is not 'cfg'. Rename to *.cfg. Apply this rename in
vty_test_runner.py and osmo-bsc_nat.cfg.
- Remove restart counters after external tests, otherwise distcheck complains
about uncleaned files.
- Add contrib/ipa.py to EXTRA_DIST, hence add a Makefile.am to contrib/.
Otherwise the python tests cannot find that dependency.
This is the first step in creating this repository from the legacy openbsc.git.
Like all other Osmocom repositories, keep the autoconf and automake files in
the repository root. openbsc.git has been the sole exception, which ends now.
