osmo-cbc - Osmocom Cell Broadcast Centre

This repository contains a C-language implementation of a minimal 3GPP Cell Broadcast Centre (CBC). It is part of the Osmocom Open Source Mobile Communications project.

A Cell Broadcast Centre is the central network element of a cellular network for distribution of Cell Broadcast and Emergency messages.

This code implements

  • the CBSP protocol on the CBC-BSC interface
  • a custom HTTP/REST based interface for external users to create/delete CBS messages

We plan to add support for the following features in the future:

  • the SABP protocol on the CBC-RNC (or CBC-HNBGW) interface for UMTS support
  • the SBcAP protocol on the CBC-MME interface for LTE support
