With 25 MHz of bandwidth of the N200 you can digitize the entire
(non-extended) GSM900 uplink or downlink if that's what you're
interested in. As Ben said, the device views samples and bandwidth and
not specific GSM channels.

Multiple channels can be supported using a channelizer /
transmultiplexer with a single device. Support for that capability in
the open version of OpenBTS is forthcoming.
