Thomas, Ban and All,

Thanks for your answer.

Just to verify my understanding:
Assuming we receive simultaneously multiple channels (upto 8x124 -
theoretically)  from the 1GBE link, can we modulate these channels onto 124
different sub-channels frequencies ( 200KHz spaced) of same 25MHz BW, by
Digital Processing/Embedded DSP in FPGA device and later transmit them
simultaneously on 900MHz carrier?

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

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.
