Title: YateBTS USRP support
Post by: cornacchia on July 20, 2018, 09:12:31 AM
I have been looking around a bit now to understand if there's a way to make YateBTS work with the USRP B200 SDR.

I looked into the documentation and found this info which I think is outdated (https://wiki.yatebts.com/index.php/Running):

You will also need to modify the Path in the [transceiver] section, depending on the transceiver used. The example below shows the necessary set-up when using the bladeRF transceiver. ./transceiver is a link to ./transceiver-bladerf.

;Path to the transceiver relative to where MBTS is started.
;Should be one of: ./transceiver-bladerf ./transceiver-rad1 ./transceiver-usrp1 ./transceiver-uhd.
;Defaults to ./transceiver

I also found this old post which says something similar to the quote above: https://forum.yate.ro/index.php?topic=429.0

The file ybts.conf now says:
; In newer versions of YateBTS the transceiver is no longer an external executable.
; The "gsmtrx" Yate module implements the device independent transceiver logic and
;  uses the configuration from this section.
; The radio device is implemented in another Yate module named "ybladerf". If you
;  need to configure board specific parameters please edit ybladerf.conf

Does this mean that YateBTS is now only compatible with the BladeRF?

If not, how could I run it with a USRP SDR?

Thank you very much for your attention

The new transceiver is using separate module for radio interface.
Currently only bladeRF is supported.
