YateBTS / Connecting YateBTS to FreeSwitch
« on: February 11, 2017, 11:07:27 AM »
I have currently set up YateBTS as an extension in FreeSwitch and can call from YateBTS anyone in FreeSwitch however when a voip phone from freeswitch calls the number of the extension YateBTS it does not work because freeswitch does not know which yatebts phone to send the call to.  How do I setup the Sip To: header from freeswitch so I can select which internal number to call?

Have you configured your iptables correctly?

YateBTS / YateBTS Excessive TOA Errors
« on: February 04, 2017, 02:51:45 PM »
I have had a working YateBTS setup for a month now, haven't used it in 2 weeks but today when I turned it on the handsets could connect but on the iPhones it said "No Service" on the top bar.
In the verbose logs it spams excessive TOA errors:
The version of YateBTS is from here:

Heres the logs on max verbosity:

And heres my bladeRF cli version:
Code: [Select]
root@openbts-VirtualBox:/home/openbts# bladeRF-cli -i
bladeRF> version

  bladeRF-cli version:        1.4.0-git-unknown
  libbladeRF version:         1.7.2-git-unknown

  Firmware version:           1.9.1
  FPGA version:               0.1.2


Any idea what I am doing wrong?

EDIT: After further investigation this issue appears to go away when the band is changed to GSM900 (Previously was GSM850)

How do I decrease the time required for yate to remove a disconnected phone from the network?

YateBTS / BladeRF getting hot
« on: January 05, 2017, 06:28:09 AM »
After getting YateBTS running the BladeRF gets hot, especially on the metal part over the radio circuits, is this an issue and does it need cooling or is it a software issue?
The bladeRF is connected to GSM 900/1800 antennas with a little spiral in them.  (The ones you buy for your car with the magnetic base)
And hot I mean hot to touch, it wont burn you but unpleasant to touch

Also, to increase the GPRS Speed, will increasing the Max Downlink+ Uplinks help?  Do these correspond to timeslots and do they only use TCH timeslots?  Like I have my BTS setup with a C0, a C7 and the other 6 are TCH, so does this mean I only have 6 GPRS channels or can GPRS also use the C7 and the C0?

Turns out YateBTS is incompatible with VMs.  For future users reading this don't bother trying.

I managed to get it working finally! (with GPRS too!)

However GPRS only works on local webpages on my local network, it does not load anything from the internet?
Why could that be?

EDIT: It seems to have fixed itself about a half an hour after I fixed iptables NAT MASQUERADE on the command line.  Maybe the MSes only update their GPRS settings once in forever lol

Is my setup otherwise correct?  Can I somehow write my virtual hard disk to a real hard drive so I don't have to do it all over again?
Exactly how time-sensitive is YateBTS? Like milliseconds, microseconds?

Please increase the debug level:
yate -s -vvvvv
Is this good enough?

Is the bladeRF not supported on USB 2.0, does it need USB3 maybe?

I get the RX Timestamp jumped error spammed when I do yate -s and phones of course can not see it.

YateBTS / GSM Identity Shortname
« on: October 30, 2016, 02:37:22 PM »
Hello everyone,  I am interested in setting up some GSM BTS stuff for a project I am working on.  I tried 2 years ago with OpenBSC but ended up wasting 800 dollars in ip.access NanoBTS equipment because it did not work since whenever a MS connected to it it would throw a "Segmentation Fault".  This time I want to try the alternative, and because OpenBTS has not gotten an update in years I think development has moved on to YateBTS.

However because I live in Greece and it has been difficult to acquire the GSM license there are several limitations and one of those is I need to use a specific Shortnames for the network to distinguish it from the other operator's networks (in addition to having different MCC MNC and of course a free ARFCN!).  However I have been a little worried since I read somewhere that changing the GSM.Identity.Shortname does not work in YateBTS even if it works in OpenBTS.  Can someone with a working system confirm this in the Public Release?  I don't want to spend another 420$ on BladeRF equipment and not be able to use it because of legal issues.
