osmo-pcu - Osmocom Packet Control Unit

This repository contains a C/C++-language implementation of a GPRS Packet Control Unit, as specified by ETSI/3GPP. It is part of the Osmocom Open Source Mobile Communications project.

The Packet Control Unit is terminating the Layer 2 (RLC/MAC) of the GPRS radio interface and adapting it to the Gb Interface (BSSGP+NS Protocol) towards the SGSN.

The PCU interfaces with the physical layer of the radio interface. OsmoPCU is typically used co-located with the BTS, specifically OsmoBTS. For legacy BTSs that run proprietary sotware without an interface to OsmoPCU, you may also co-locate it with the BSC, specifically OsmoBSC

Homepage

The official homepage of the project is https://osmocom.org/projects/osmopcu/wiki/OsmoPCU

GIT Repository

You can clone from the official osmo-pcu.git repository using

git clone git://git.osmocom.org/osmo-pcu.git

There is a cgit interface at http://git.osmocom.org/osmo-pcu/

Documentation

We provide a user manual as well as a vty reference manual

Please note that a lot of the PCU configuration actually happens inside the BSC, which passes this configuration via A-bis OML to the BTS, which then in turn passes it via the PCU socket into OsmoPCU.
