OSMO-BSC(1) OSMO-BSC(1)

NAME

osmo-bsc - Osmocom BSC

SYNOPSIS

osmo-bsc [options]

DESCRIPTION

This is the BSC-only version of OpenBSC. It requires a Mobile Switching Center (MSC) to operate.

You might rather prefer to use osmocom-nitb which is considered a "GSM Network-in-a-Box" and does not depend on a MSC.

Typically you start osmo-bsc with the -c option specifying where to find the configuration file. There are example configuration files in:

   /usr/share/doc/osmo-bsc/examples/osmo-bsc
