RetroNetCall; our [almost] monthly online meeting

I’ll use this thread to announce the individual RetroNetCalls.

Today, I’m happy to announce the next incarnation of RetroNetCall, the retronetworking oriented spin-off of OsmoDevCall

This time, there’s no formal presentation. However, if people are interested, laforge can report on the ISDN_at_CCC_Camp_2023 which jolly and laforge operated last month.

When: Wednesday, September 6, 2023 from 20:00 CEST

Where: RetroNetCall (Big Blue Button of https://franken.de/)

I had this so much on my agenda, but for personal reasons I was not able to attend :confused:
Has the call been recorded?

It was not.

And now a useless sentence because apparently posts on discourse can’t be less than 20 characters …

It is a configurable setting, and I just reduced it to 10 characters on any but the initial post. As a site admin, you also have access to those settings yourself, btw!

We’re happy to announce the next incarnation of RetroNetCall, the retronetworking oriented spin-off of OsmoDevCall

This time, there’s no formal presentation. However, laforge (and maybe some others) can report on

  • The rescuing efforts of an EWSD (digital telephony exchange) that was recently transported to its new home with jolly
  • Some initial research into the BildTel_001, presumably the first ISDN video telephone in the German ISDN network

We’re happy to announce the next incarnation of RetroNetCall , the retronetworking oriented spin-off of OsmoDevCall

This time, @laforge (and maybe some others) will give a tour of divf, the central office of the OCTOI network based on yate + dahdi-trunkdev

We’ll look into how subscriber E1 terminate in osmo-e1d + dahid-trunkdev, how that feeds into yate, how the routing/dialplan works, as well as the new SS7/ISUP interconnects to the two EWSD.

I kindly ask this meeting to be recorded; I already have an appointment tonight which I cannot shift and it would mean like a nice santa clause gift to me that I can gather the information later on :slight_smile:

Yes, usually all of them are recorded - unless they are super informal without any actual prepared presentation. It will usually take some weeks until they are cut + published by @tnt - who has just moved to a new home, and hence I expect it might even take a bit longer due to that.

Meanwhile you can normally find the raw video at RetroNetCall - at least after BigBlueButton has published it there, which can be a number of hours after the meeting ended due to internal post-processing.

Yesterday, I finally found the time to watch it. Thank you very much for the comprehensive and interesting insight into OCTOI’s engine room.

This time, there’s no formal presentation. However, if people are interested, laforge can report on his most recent equipment acquisitions, primarily a vvariety of PDH (Siemens_FastLink) and SDH gear.
