Picking and validating antenna selection for the new RAN project in my lab.
How I ended up with a Macro LTE eNodeB (Huawei BBU3900) and getting it running.
Functionality of eNB MME selection based on Relative Capacity IE
Using SDR hardware to view the LTE System Information Block’s contents.
What the Origin-State-Id AVP does and how it is used to track if a Diameter peer restarts.
Why the BaiCells PLMN changes?
A look into the signalling messages between Network elements in an Evolved Packet Core exchanged during the Attach Procedure
These posts focus on the use of Diameter and SIP in an IMS / VoLTE context, however these practices can be equally applied to other networks. The Registration-Termination Request / Answer allow a Diameter Client (S-CSCF) to indicate to the HSS (Diameter Server) that it is no longer serving that user and the registration has […]
Note: I’m running version 19.12.0 which I installed from the repos due to issues with 20.4.0 (latest when I wrote this) and stability on LimeSDR. I wrote the other day about installing SRS LTE stack, But installing it is one thing, meeting all the requirements to use it with your SDR hardware turns out to […]
