OpenBTS, whose design and development is led by Range Networks and published for free download at the open source project OpenBTS.org, is the software used in all Range systems.
Range Networks has just announced OpenBTS 4.0!
Improvements in OpenBTS 4.0 include:
The Range Core software has improved concurrent registration processing capacity by 14x, allowing OpenBTS to handle over 1000 subscribers on a single node.
Improved air interface security through support of the A5/1 and A5/3 encryption algorithms.
New web administrative interface
OpenBTS is now fully instrumented with a JSON API. Using this API, Range has developed a simple browser-based configuration and management tool.
Built-in channel scanning
To identify the best transmission channel to configure for operations, OpenBTS now has a built-in channel scanning tool.
New Layer 3
The air interface software has been augmented with a new state machine for greater efficiency in processing Layer 3 messages and overall improved capacity and system performance.
SMS processing capacity has been improved 2.5x.
The open source release of OpenBTS is used and contributed to by developers worldwide. It is intended for experimentation, education, and proof-of-concept uses, and is distributed under AGPLv3 with copyrights assigned to the Free Software Foundation. The OpenBTS Development Kit comes with the standard, public version of OpenBTS
OpenBTS is installed on the Professional Development Kit and all our RapidCell and OpenCell series base stations. These network base station products offer some enhancements additional to the public version of OpenBTS for larger scale, multi-node networks.
