This adds code to handle CBSP (Cell Broadcast Service Protocol)
from the CBC (Cell Broadcast Centre), as well as BSC-internal data
structures for scheduling the various SMSCB on the CBCH of each BTS.
There are currently one known shortcoming in the code: We don't yet
verify if keepalives are received within repetition period.
Old osmo-bsc-sccplite already supported this, but in the migration
over to libosmo-sigtran and to real 3GPP AoIP, this functionality
We now create a UDP proxy socket. Any MGCP commands received via IPA
from MSC (or rather: bsc_nat) are retransmitted to the MGW via UDP on
this socket. Any responses back from the MGW received on the UDP
socket are retransmitted back to MSC/bsc_nat as MGCP inside the IPA
osmo-mgw.git also includes fixes of the MGW endpoint FSM, for example

Move the T_defs API to libosmocore as osmo_tdefs: remove the local T_defs API
and use libosmocore's osmo_tdef* API instead.
The root reason is moving the mgw_endpoint_fsm to libosmo-mgcp-client to be
able to use it in osmo-msc for inter-MSC handover.
When adding osmo_tdef, the new concept of timer groups was added to the API. It
would make sense to apply group names here as well, but do not modify the VTY
configuration for timers. The future might bring separate groups (or not).

gsm0808_page() is just a thin wrapper for rsl_paging_cmd(), the only caller is
page_ms() from paging.c. Directly call rsl_paging_cmd() instead.
Move gsm0808_cipher_mode() to the only caller in osmo_bsc_bssap.c, make static.
- timeslot_fsm: handle dynamic timeslots and OML+RSL availability.
- lchan_fsm: handle an individual lchan activation, RTP stream and release,
signal the appropriate calling FSMs on success, failure, release.
- mgw_endpoint_fsm: handle one entire endpoint with several CI.
- assignment_fsm: BSSMAP Assignment Request.
- handover_fsm: all of intra, inter-MO and inter-MT handover.
Above FSMs absorb large parts of the gscon FSM. The gscon FSM was surpassing
the maximum amount events (32), and it is more logical to treat assignment,
handover and MGW procedures in separate FSMs.
- Add logging macros for each FSM type:
- LOG_MGWEP(), LOG_CI()
These log with the osmo_fsm_inst where present.
New style decision: logging without a final newline char is awkward,
especially for gsmtap logging and when other logs interleave LOGPC() calls;
we have various cases where the final \n goes missing, and also this invokes
the log category checking N times instead of once.
So I decided to make these macros *always* append a newline, but only if
there is no final newline yet. I hope that the compiler optimizes the
strlen() of the constant format strings away. Thus I can log with or without
typing "\n" and always get an \n termination anyway.
- replace osmo_timers, state enums and program-wide osmo_signal_dispatch()
with dedicated FSM timeouts, states and events.
- introduce a common way to handle Tnnn timers: gsm_timers.h/.c: struct T_def.
These can be used (with some macro magic) to define a state's timeout once,
and not make mistakes for each osmo_fsm_inst_state_chg().
- move most states of this FSM to lchan_fsm, assignment_fsm, handover_fsm and
- There is exactly one state for an ongoing Assignment, with all details
handled in conn->assignment.fi. The state relies on the assignment_fsm's
- There is one state for an ongoing Handover; except for an incoming Handover
from a remote BSS, the gscon remains in ST_INIT until the new lchan and conn
are both established.
- move bssmap_add_lcls_status() to osmo_bsc_lcls.c
- move all dynamic timeslot logic away into timeslot_fsm. Only keep plain send/receive functions in
- reduce some rsl functions to merely send a message, rename to "_tx_".
- rsl_ipacc_mdcx(): add '_tx_' in the name; move parts that change the lchan state out into the
lchan_fsm, the lchan->abis_ip.* are now set there prior to invoking this function.
- move all timers and error/release handling away into various FSMs.
- tweak ipa_smod_s_for_lchan() and ipa_rtp_pt_for_lchan() to not require an
lchan passed, but just mode,type that they require. Rename to
ipacc_speech_mode*() and ipacc_payload_type().
- add rsl_forward_layer3_info, used for inter-BSC HO MO, to just send the RR
message received during BSSMAP Handover Command.
- move various logging to LOG_LCHAN() in order to log with the lchan FSM instance.
One drawback is that the lchan FSM is limited to one logging category, i.e. this moves some logging
from DRR to DRSL. It might actually make sense to combine those categories.
- lose LOGP...LOGPC logging cascades: they are bad for gsmtap logging and for performance.
- handle_classmark_chg(): change logging, move cm2 len check out of the cm3 condition (I hope that's
- gsm48_send_ho_cmd(): split off gsm48_make_ho_cmd() which doesn't send right away, so that during
inter-bsc HO we can make an RR Handover Command to send via the MSC to the remote BSS.
- the Chan Mode Modify in case of re-using the same lchan is not implemented
yet, because this was also missing in the previous implementation (OS#3357).
- simplify bsc_mr_config() and move to lchan_fsm.c, the only caller; rename to
lchan_mr_config(). (bsc_mr_config() used to copy the values to mr_bts_lv
twice, once by member assignment and then again with a memcpy.)
- During handover, we used to copy the MR config from the old lchan. Since we
may handover between FR and HR, rather set the MR Config anew every time, so
that FR rates are always available on FR lchans, and never on HR lchans.

At the moment there are three sources that may advertise a list of
supported audio codec/rate settings. There is the MS that advertises
advertises a speech codec list and the MSC that sends a channel type
information element over A and there are also settings in the bsc
configuration file that may restrict the codec/rate types that are
allowed to use.
The function match_codec_pref() looks at all of the three buckets and
selects a codec that satisfies all three. This is already a somewhat
complicated process, overit is very isolated, so lets give it its own
Due to the lack of unit-tests it is very hard to make changes here so
lets add also unit-test to make sure that regressions are catched early.
- Put match_codec_pref() and all its helper functions into a separate

Move all of libbsc/ into osmo-bsc/, and separate/move some implementations to
allow linking from utils/* and ipaccess/* without pulling in unccessary
Some utilities use gsm_network and gsm_bts structs, which already include data
structures for fairly advanced uses. Move initialization that only osmo-bsc
needs into new bsc_network_init() and bsc_bts_alloc_register() functions, so
that the leaner tools can use the old gsm_* versions without the need to link
everything (e.g. handover and lchan alloc code).
In some instances, there need to be stubs if to cut off linking "just before
the RSL level" and prevent dependencies from creeping in.
- abis_rsl_rcvmsg(): the only program currently interpreting RSL messages is
osmo-bsc, the utils are merely concerned with OML, if at all.
- paging_flush_bts(): ip.access nanobts models call this when the RSL link is
dropped. Only osmo-bsc actually needs to do anything there.
- on_gsm_ts_init(): the mechanism to trigger timeslot initialization is related
to OML, while this action to take on init would pull in RSL dependencies.
utils/ and ipaccess/ each have a stubs.c file to implement these stubs. Tests
implement stubs inline where required.
From src/utils/, src/ipaccess/ and tests/*/, link in .o files from osmo-bsc/.
In order for this to work, the osmo-bsc subdir must be built before the other
source trees. (An alternative would be to include the .c files as sources, but
that would re-compile them in every source tree. Not a large burden really, but
unless linking .o files gives problems, let's have the quicker build.)
Minor obvious cleanups creep in with this patch, I will not bother to name them
individually now unless code review asks me to.
1) libbsc has been separate to use it for osmo-nitb and osmo-bsc in the old
openbsc.git. This is no longer required, and spreading over libbsc and osmo-bsc
2) Recently, ridiculous linking requirements have made adding new functions
cumbersome, because libbsc has started depending on osmo-bsc/*.c
implementations: on gscon FSM and bssap functions. For example, neither
bs11_config nor ipaccess-config nor bts_test need handover_cfg or BSSMAP
message composition. It makes no sense to link the entire osmo-bsc to it, nor
do we want to keep adding stubs to each linking realm.
In the current implementation of osmo-bsc, the subscriber connection is
not handled (very) statefully. However, there is some state keeping in the
code that handles the mgcp connection, but there are still to much loose ends
which allow odd situations to happen, which then lead severe error situations
(see also closes tags at the end) This commit adds a number of improvements
to fix those problems.
- Use an osmo-fsm to control the gsm_subscriber_connection state and
make sure that certain operations can only take place at certain states
(e.g let connection oriented SCCP traffic only pass when an SCCP connection
Remove the old osmo_bsc_mgcp.c code. Use the recently developed MGCP client
FSM to handle the MGCP connections.
Also make sure that stuff that already works does not break. This in
particular refers to the internal handover capability and the respective
See also OS#2823, OS#2768 and OS#2898
- Fix logic to permit assignment to a signalling channel. (OS#2762)
- Introduce T993210 to release lchan + subscr_conn if MSC fails to respond
The GSM specs don't have an explicit timer for this, so let's introdcue
a custom timer (hence starting with 99).
This timeout catches the following situation:
* we send a SCCP CR with COMPL_L3_INFO from the MS to the MSC,
* the MSC doesn't respond (e.g. SCCP routing failure, program down, ...)
The MS is supposed to timeout with T3210, 3220 or 3230. But the BSC
shouldn't trust the MS but have some timer on its own.
SCCP would have a timer T(conn est), but that one is specified to be
1-2min and hence rather long.
See also: OS#2775
- Terminate bsc_subscr_conn_fsm on SCCP N-DISC.ind from MSC
If the MSC is disconnecting the SCCP channel, we must terminate the FSM
which in turn will release all lchan's and other state.
This makes TC_chan_rel_hard_rlsd pass, see also OS#2731
As a side-effect, this fixes TC_chan_act_ack_est_ind_refused(),
where the MSC is answering with CREF to our CR/COMPL_L3.
- Release subscriber connection on RLL RELEASE IND of SAPI0 on main DCCH
The subscriber connection isn't really useful for anything after the
SAPI0 main signalling link has been released. We could try to
re-establish, but our best option is probably simply releasing the
subscriber_conn and anything related to it.
This will make TC_chan_rel_rll_rel_ind pass, see also OS#2730

Move gsm_data.c and handover_cfg.c to libbsc, where they belong.

libosmo-sccp is the old sccp-lite-focused SCCP implementation that we
used before libosmo-sigtran was created. The new osmo-bsc in this

We only keep it around in configure.ac and Makefile.am for osmo-bsc_nat,
which is not even built in this repository anymore (or 'again yet'?)
There still is a lot of dead code that we inherited from the NITB
days, let's remove more of it.
libtrau will be re-introduced as part of osmo-mgw later.
osmo-bsc currently negotiates the RTP stream directly with the
BTS and reports back the RTP IP/Port on the BTS. This works fine
for a single BTS, but for Handover the port/ip pointing to the
MSC side must not change, so an entity in between the BTSs and
the MSC is required.
Integrate the mgcp-client and use osmo-mgw to switch the RTP

This was originally a long series of commits converging to the final result
seen in this patch. It does not make much sense to review the smaller steps'
trial and error, we need to review this entire change as a whole.
