CoLTE is the Community LTE Project. It is designed to be an all-in-one turnkey solution that sets up a small-scale locally-run LTE/5G network. CoLTE consists of several main elements working together:

  1. An all-in-one software EPC, powered by [open5gs] (

  2. Network monitoring software, powered by haulage, to keep track of how many bytes each user uses and bill appropriately.

  3. A Web GUI that lets network users check the status of their account, top up, transfer/resell credit, and buy data packages.

  4. A Web-based admin tool that lets administrators manage all the information above.

  5. Local Web and DNS serving/caching via Nginx and BIND.
