osmo-msc - Osmocom MSC Implementation
=====================================
This repository contains a C-language implementation of a GSM Mobile Switching
Centre (MSC) for 2G (GSM) and 3G (UMTS). It is part of the
[Osmocom](https://osmocom.org/) Open Source Mobile Communications
project.
OsmoMSC exposes
* A over IP towards BSCs (e.g. OsmoBSC): 3GPP AoIP or SCCPlite
* IuCS over IP towards RNCs / HNBGW (e.g. osmo-hnbgw)
* The Osmocom typical telnet VTY and CTRL interfaces.
* The Osmocom typical statsd exporter.
OsmoMSC implements
* mobility management
* call control (either via built-in MNCC handler or external osmo-sip-connector)
* USSD (exposed via GSUP)
* SMS (either via built-in SMSC or external via GSUP)

History
-------
OsmoMSC originated from the OsmoNITB project, which started as a minimalistic
all-in-one implementation of the GSM Network. In 2017, OsmoNITB had reached
maturity and diversity (including M3UA SIGTRAN and 3G support in the form of
IuCS and IuPS interfaces) that naturally lead to a separation of the all-in-one
approach to fully independent separate programs as in typical GSM networks.
OsmoMSC was one of the parts split off from the old openbsc.git.
