Posted: 20-Aug-2013 [Source: Range Networks]

[OpenBTS, an open source GPRS/GSM stack, now implements GSM as a virtual SIP endpoint as well as SMS services.]

San Francisco, CA -- Range Networks, the leading U.S. provider of commercial open source cellular systems, today announced the release of a key update to its OpenBTS source code, providing developers with the ability to incorporate Internet access through a packet-oriented mobile data service known as General Packet Radio Service (GPRS). The release supports the OpenBTS community, an open source project started by the founders of Range Networks.

Key Facts:

Enhanced Service Offerings through Internet Access - In response to requests from the open source community, this update will provide developers, hobbyists, academics, remote cell users, telemedicine proponents and first responders with enhanced services that allow them to leverage wide-area Internet connectivity through a GSM interface.

SMS Cell Broadcast Capabilities - The update provides the capability for SMS Cell Broadcast (SMS-CB), a feature that allows SMS messaging to be broadcast to subscribers. This feature will allow for the development of innovative disaster relief services such as nationwide or citywide alerting, weather reports, mass messaging and location-based news.

Open-Source Software - OpenBTS, an open-source, software defined, radio implementation of the Global System for Mobile (GSM) communications radio access network, presents normal GSM handsets as virtual SIP endpoints.

Free Download - The update is available at no charge through the OpenBTS website. The release allows anyone to establish no-cost cellular data networks for the first time.
