osmo-nitb(1) Osmocom GSM Network in the Box


osmo-nitb [options]


This is the Network-in-a-Box version of OpenBSC. It has all the GSM network components bundled together. When using osmocom-nitb, there is no need for a Mobile Switching Center (MSC) which is needed when using osmocom-bsc.

Typically you would have to create a configuration file and start osmo-nitb with the "-c" option. There are example configuration files in:
