Hello list members,

I noticed the GSM features in Wireshark, but I'm a bit confused about using WireShark to sniffer traffic in our GSM network, how can I connect to the network?

1- Plug the wiresharked PC into the related interface (A=fiber, Abis=E1's, ...) How to realise it?
2-Attach an Fiber & E1 cards to the pc (does it exists?)
3-Use OMC service ports (only O&M data)
4- ...

Mainly I need a way to extract some user related parameters from those interfaces, such as IMSI, IMEI, NMR and TA for positioning. Is it applicable  as real time or I must dump a file and  do analysis later by wireshark.

Does Wireshark GSM analysis compatible with all vendors, especially Ericsson?

Thanks in advance ...
