We will introduce bladeRF as a low-cost USB3.0 software defined radio platform ready to tackle the full-duplex, and wide bandwidth requirements of many modern radio protocols such as GSM, LTE, 802.11, and many others. We will chronicle our adventures with bladeRF from the initial development and Kickstarter campaign to adding GNURadio/OpenBTS support and beyond. We will demonstrate and release tools that will bring to light peculiarities in GSM, 4G, 802.11, and other niche protocols.
