LTE/NR Base Station Software


LTEENB allows to build a real 4G LTE/5G NR base station (called an eNodeB (4G) or gNodeB (5G)) using a standard PC and a low cost software radio frontend. All the physical layer and protocol layer processing is done in real time inside the PC, so no dedicated hardware is necessary. NB-IoT and Cat-M1 devices are also supported. The software is now developped and distributed by Amarisoft.

LTEENB is provided with a complete Evolved Packet Core (EPC) so that it can work without an existing LTE network behind it. In short, it is possible to use it like a Wifi access point. The EPC contains the following programs:

Example configuration

Potential use


The LTE/NR eNodeB/gNodeB software is commercialized by Amarisoft.

A UE simulator is now available. It simulates hundreds of terminals sharing the same antenna. It uses the same hardware configuration as the LTE eNodeB.
