+About OpenBSC
+=============
+
+OpenBSC is a minimalistic implementation of the GSM Network, with
+particular emphasis on the functionality typically provided by the BSC,
+MSC, HLR, VLR and SMSC.
+
+Its currently supported interfaces towards the BTS are:
+
+ * Classic A-bis over E1 using a mISDN based E1 interface. In other
+ words, you can connect existing GSM Base Transceiver Station (BTS)
+ through E1 to OpenBSC. So far, we have only tested the Siemens BS-11
+ Test reports with other BTS are much appreciated!
+
+ * A-bis over IP as used by the ip.access nanoBTS product family
+
+You can find the project documentation at http://openbsc.gnumonks.org/
+
+This project is still in its early days, and there are lots of areas where it
+doesn't behave as per GSM spec.

+===========
+
+Please note that as of March 2010, OpenBSC has a dependency to a library
+called "libosmocore". You can obtain that library from
+
+ git://git.osmocom.org/libosmocore.git
