Philipp Maier 87bd9be0b0 Initially implement the new osmo-mgw and libosmo-mgcp
Leave the old osmo-bsc_mgcp and libosmo-legacy-mgcp as it is; on a copy thereof
(added by a previous commit), apply changes to initially implement the new

Adjust build system and debian packaging to accomodate the new libosmo-mgcp and

The main differences:

*) use a list to manage rtp connections.

Aggregate all rtp related information inside a single struct.

Use a linked list to manage the both connections (net and bts).
The idea behind using a list is that we might support conference
calls at some later point.

Store the linked list in struct mgcp_endpoint, have a private linked
list for each endpoint. The list contains connection items which are
implemented in struct mgcp_conn. A connection is allocated and freed
using the functions in mgcp_conn.c. A connection is allocated on the
reception of a CRCX command and freed with the reception of a DLCX

*) remove external transcoder feature

Fortunatelly the external transcoder feature is not needed
anymore. This patch removes the related code.

*) vty: get rid of CONN_BTS and CONN_NET

Since the new connection model does not make a difference
between BTS and NET connections the VTY should not use
the fixed CONN_BTS and CONN_NET constants.

- Handle the conns list inside the endpoint directly
- introduce function to dump basic rtp connection info
- introduce human readable names for connections

Parts of the code adjusted to use generalized connections instead of explicit
BTS/NET ones:

- teach mgcp_send_dummy() to send dummy packets to any RTP connection
- network: generalize mgcp_bind_net/bts_rtp_port()
- network: generalize mgcp_send()
- tap: generalize call tapping feature
- stat: generalize statistics
- Replace rtp_data_net() and rtp_data_bts() with generalized rtp_data_rx()

*) mgcp_protocol.c fixes:

- check ci string before it is converted:
  In case of missing ci, a nullpointer is delivered to strtoul().
  Add a function that takes ci, checks it and converts it to an
  uint32_t. Use the return code to react on missing ci.
- output error message on missing CI.
- when parsing the mode, print log message when mode is missing.
- use mode_orig when mode is missing.
- fix ptime formatstring to use %u rather than %d.
- cosmetic: log when connection is deleted on DLCX.
- change loglevels of CRCX, MDCX, DLCX events from DEBUG to NOTICE.

*) mgcp_test

- apply rename of strline_r() to mgcp_strline().
- MGCP command macros:
  - Add 'I: 1' parameters.
  - Use proper port numbers:
    from m=audio 0 RTP/AVP 126
    to   m=audio 16002 RTP/AVP 128
  - Change ptime to 'a=ptime:40' because this is what the MGW currently
    returns.  CRCX generally feed a ptime:40 and this is expected to be
- struct mgcp_test: Use only one ptype, there are no explicit BTS and NET
  endpoints anymore.
  Hence remove one column from tests[].
- test_messages():
  - Enable: remove '#if 0'
  - Remove concept of BTS and NET endpoints: test only one conn, as they are
    now interchangeable anyway.
  - remove endpoint init, now done internally.
  - add false asserts in error cases.
- test_retransmission():
  - remove endpoint init, now done internally.
  - add false asserts in error cases.
- test_packet_error_detection():
  - Remove concept of BTS and NET endpoints: test only one conn, as they are
    now interchangeable anyway. Use arbitrary conn ids (e.g. 4711).
  - remove endpoint init, now done internally.
  - add false assert in error case.
  - Assert that a conn really vanishes on DLCX, previously the conn would
    remain and just be unused, now it is actually discarded.
- test_no_cycle()
  - Remove concept of BTS and NET endpoints: test only one conn, as they are
    now interchangeable anyway. Use arbitrary conn ids (e.g. 4711).
- test_no_name()
  - Enable: remove '#if 0'.
  - remove endpoint init, now done internally.
  - add false assert in error case.
- mgcp_test.ok: adjust expected results to status quo:
  - We now see two dummy packets instead of one, now sent to both sides because
    we don't know of BTS or NET side. (maybe drop dummy packets later...)
  - packet duration, conn mode: now sane defaults show instead of unset.
- various whitespace and formatting changes from lindent.

Neels Hofmeyr 3a8e723a0d rename mgcpgw_client_* to mgcp_client_*
The name "mgcpgw_client" referred to an MGCP gateway, which is rather an MGW
(Media Gateway). But this client code is more generally a client for the MGCP
protocol, independently from what the server program is called.

Rename the files as well as the function prefixes to drop the "gw". It is
purely cosmetic and not strictly necessary, but a good point in time for fixes
like this.

osmo-msc build will be adjusted by I093ad02ca0e532f659447c785e09678b3e6f220d.
osmo-bsc build will be adjusted by I6402c7cbe58dacae7630f7f03819f8102e54c699.
These should be applied right after this here is merged to avoid fallout.

Neels Hofmeyr 97df691307 separate libosmo-mgcp-client from mgcp server code
When osmo-mgw is built --with-mgcp-transcoding, linking the mgcp library
also requires linking libgsm, even though e.g. osmo-msc never use it.
Separate the MGCP client code from the MGCP server code to avoid this dep.

The mgcp client code does use some definitions from mgcp.h and mgcp_common.c.
For simplicity, link mgcp_common.c in both libosmo-legacy-mgcp as well as
libosmo-mgcp-client. That means it is not possible to link both
libosmo-legacy-mgcp and libosmo-mgcp-client in the same binary because of
duplicate symbols, but currently that is sufficient. (An alternative would be
code dup or yet another libosmo-mgcp-common library.)

Add libosmo-mgcp-client to debian packaging.

Neels Hofmeyr e9920f24b1 split off osmo-mgw: remove files, apply build, rename
Add vty and logging previously used from libcommon

Rename libmgcp to libosmo-legacy-mgcp and install.


Slim down the public mgcpgw_client API, move all elements not actually used by
current callers to private headers / static c.

Neels Hofmeyr a1756f320a Implement IuCS (large refactoring and addition)
osmo-nitb becomes osmo-msc
add DIUCS debug log constant
add iucs.[hc]
add msc vty, remove nitb vty
add libiudummy, to avoid linking Iu deps in tests
Use new msc_tx_dtap() instead of gsm0808_submit_dtap()
libmgcp: add mgcpgw client API
bridge calls via mgcpgw

Enable MSC specific CTRL commands, bsc_base_ctrl_cmds_install() still needs to
be split up.

Harald Welte 7b423edb56 Use libvlr in libmsc (large refactoring)
Original libvlr code is by Harald Welte <>,
polished and tweaked by Neels Hofmeyr <>.

This is a long series of trial-and-error development collapsed in one patch.
This may be split in smaller commits if reviewers prefer that. If we can keep
it as one, we have saved ourselves the additional separation work.


The SQL based lookup of SMS for attached subscribers no longer works since the
SQL database no longer has the subscriber data. Replace with a round-robin on
the SMS recipient MSISDNs paired with a VLR subscriber RAM lookup whether the
subscriber is currently attached.

If there are many SMS for not-attached subscribers in the SMS database, this
will become inefficient: a DB hit returns a pending SMS, the RAM lookup will
reveal that the subscriber is not attached, after which the DB is hit for the
next SMS. It would become more efficient e.g. by having an MSISDN based hash
list for the VLR subscribers and by marking non-attached SMS recipients in the
SMS database so that they can be excluded with the SQL query already.

There is a sanity limit to do at most 100 db hits per attempt to find a pending
SMS. So if there are more than 100 stored SMS waiting for their recipients to
actually attach to the MSC, it may take more than one SMS queue trigger to
deliver SMS for subscribers that are actually attached.

This is not very beautiful, but is merely intended to carry us over to a time
when we have a proper separate SMSC entity.

Introduce gsm_subscriber_connection ref-counting in libmsc.

Remove/Disable VTY and CTRL commands to create subscribers, which is now a task
of the OsmoHLR. Adjust the python tests accordingly.

Remove VTY cmd subscriber-keep-in-ram.

Use OSMO_GSUP_PORT = 4222 instead of 2222. See

So far use the LAC from conn->bts, will be replaced by conn->lac in

Neels Hofmeyr 85929a7be7 move openbsc/* to repos root
This is the first step in creating this repository from the legacy openbsc.git.

Like all other Osmocom repositories, keep the autoconf and automake files in
the repository root. openbsc.git has been the sole exception, which ends now.
