Running your own cellular network using OpenBSC & Co

A workshop from EMF 2016 by Harald Welte

On Saturday August 6, 2016 at in Workshop 2

This workshop will demonstrate how to use OsmoBTS, OpenBSC, OsmoNITB, OsmoSGSN and OpenGGSN to run a small, private GSM/GPRS network for research and experimentation purpose.

Using such a small/private network you can learn first hand about cellular technology, its protocols, interfaces, network elements and security.

The above-mentioned free software is far from new, and has been presented many times at other events before. However, a tutorial with hands-on experience with setting up your own cellular network is still something out of reach of most hackers. Let's try to change that!
