OpenBTS support


Now that calibration, and timed receives and writes seem to work, we are looking for volunteers to experiment with our OpenBTS support ( ) . The quick start guide on Github should be followed along with the official OpenBTS guide at

The bladeRF steps are as follow:

sudo apt-get install autoconf libtool libosip2-dev libortp-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev g++ sqlite3 libsqlite3-dev erlang libreadline6-dev libncurses5-dev
( cd a53/trunk ; sudo make install)
cd openbts/trunk/
./configure –with-bladeRF
make -j10
sudo mkdir /etc/OpenBTS
sudo sqlite3 -init ./apps/OpenBTS.example.sql /etc/OpenBTS/OpenBTS.db “.quit”
cd apps
ln -s ../Transceiver52M/transceiver transceiver
sudo ./OpenBTS


As always, we are available on FreeNode in #bladeRF or via email at
