LaForge and the fine folks at Osmocom (Sysmocom) recently had a femtocell giveaway. I didn’t expect to have much time to hack on things, but they were still quite generous in sending me one. It arrived, and I took some un-boxing photos for anyone who is curious.
|A box arrived in the mail…|
|Which recurses into an inner box…|
|Inner box is box like.|
|Finally… The unit is displayed.|
|Here it is in all its glory.|
|It came complete with all the cables and power adapters necessary.|
|The sysmocom folks even included some special test sim cards so that you can use the femtocell with your own phones.|
I’m very excited about the work the project is doing in their efforts to create and support free software telephony. If you are a telecom, please check out the various Sysmocom products and services available.
Disclaimer: I received the above femtocell for free, but I was not asked to publish this article and the opinions stated are my own.
