osmo-sgsn(1) Serving GPRS Support Node


osmo-sgsn [options]


This is an implementation of the GPRS Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN). As such it implements the GPRS Mobility Management (GMM) and SM (Session Management).

The SGSN connects via the Gb-interface to the BSS (like the osmo-pcu or an ip.access nanoBTS), and it connects via the GTP protocol to a Gateway GPRS Support Node (GGSN) like openggsn.

Typically, you would start osmo-sgsn with the "-c" option specifying a configuration file. You can find example configuration files here:

osmo-sgsn is part of the OpenBSC base station controller from Osmocom.
