The OpenBTS Project

The OpenBTS Project

Great project for an open source GSM basestation.

There's a few legal issues (and lack of spectrum, well usable spectrum anyway) but this could be the solution for rural areas or networks in non 1st world countries. There could also be an interest for some of the low power guard band operators who won licenses in the UK.

It currently uses Asterisk as intelligence for the "back-end".

This project should be supported.
