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.

I knew that it was not possible to transmit the name when listing networks however will Identity.Shortname work after the first LUR in Yate?

I need info about adding a messages ShortName and time-of-day to YateBTS( as this is in OpenBTS) :
Code: [Select]
// Send the "short name" and time-of-day.
string shortName = gConfig.getStr("GSM.Identity.ShortName");
if (ludata()->isInitialAttach() && shortName.size()) {
channel()->l3sendm(L3MMInformation(shortName.c_str()));
}
