Using Docker to spin up environments to test Kamailio in
So far with most of our discussions about Kamailio we’ve talked about routing the initial SIP request (INVITE, REGISTER, SUBSCRIBE, etc), but SIP is not a one-message protocol, there’s a whole series of SIP messages that go into a SIP Dialog. Sure the call may start with an INVITE, but there’s the 180 RINGING, the […]
A research paper from the 1960s examining how Telecommunications pillars hold up to gunfire…
Our BTS is going to need an accurate clock source in order to run, so without access to crazy accurate Timing over Packet systems or TDM links to use as reference sources, I’ve opted to use the GPS/GLONASS receiver built into the LMPT card. Add new GPS with ID 0 on LMPT in slot 7 […]

My holiday reading list for 2020.
This post is one in a series documenting my adventures attempting to configure a used BTS 3900 to function as a eNB in my lab. There are 5 network ports on the LMPT card: 2x SFP cages – SFP 0 and SFP 1 1x 10/100 Ethernet port – ETH – Used to access the Local […]
Learning Huawei’s flavour of MML – Man Machine Language for the BTS 3900 series Macro Base Stations.
Meta: This post is a series chronicling my adventures with a second hand Huawei BTS3900 I purchased. You can find an index of these posts here. So you purchased a used Macro base station online, good for you. Now you need to know how to configure it. First things first, you’ll need to connect to […]
I put together some laser cut case designs for the Osmocom SIMtrace, Quite happy with the results. If you want to cut your own, I’ve sent the DXF files to the mailing list, and will try and add to the project.
All the gear I’ve got so far for my DIY RAN Project requires -48vDC to power it up. Back to online auction websites and preso I’ve ended up with an Eltek MPSU3000, from the mid 2000s. The fellow I bought it from was even nice enough to throw a binder full of printed documentation, which […]
Acronyms and cryptography – a look at Subscriber Identifiers in 5G

What do Unlock SIMs sold online actually do and how do they do it?
Configuring the Osmocom Serving Gateway Support Node (SGSN) for 2G/3G networks.
While 5G SA devices are still in their early stages, and 5G RAN hardware / gNodeBs are hard to come by, so today we’ll cover using UERANSIM to simulate UEs and 5G RAN, to put test calls through our 5GC. Bringing your 5G Core Online We’ll use Open5Gs for all the 5GC components, and install […]
