FOSS technology stack for 4G networks

The LibreCellular project makes it easier to create 4G cellular networks with open source software and low cost software-defined radio (SDR) hardware. Achieving this via validated hardware and software configurations that are subjected to rigorous end-to-end testing via a continuous integration (CI) platform, supported by tooling and documentation for repeatable deployment.

This NLnet funded work will build on previous efforts and enable the integration of a more advanced core network, together with support for Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE). In support of which the existing CI hardware platform will also be extended and tests developed to provide VoLTE coverage. Finally, a previously developed medium power RF amplifier will be further developed to create a complete RF front-end, and a deployment manual will be created which covers topics such as antenna selection, spectrum licensing and EMF assessments.
