+OpenBSC is a minimalistic implementation of the GSM Network, with

-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

+Please note that as of March 2010, OpenBSC has a dependency to a library
