Thanks for your prompt reply.
If I understand right, earlier the workflow used to be:
USRP -> GNURadio ->Airprobe (Parse) -> Kraken -> Airprobe (decode)
Now the workflow is:
MotorolaC1xx -> OsmocomBB -> Airprobe (Parse) -> Kraken -> Airprobe (decode)
Can you please confirm or correct.
I've read the Osmocom/Sysmocom documentation, but could not figure out what is the best phone option on Sysmocom shop for my use:
Do I need the Motorola C1xx with filter rework?
Do I need C1xx with Calypso chipset?
It will be very helpful if you can suggest.

> There has been little development of GSM tools for USRP the past two years. The USRP 1 and 2 (and possibly others supported by GnuRadio) can intercept a few adjacent GSM channels and - using the Airprobe tools - decode some of this data.
> The same capabilities can be had with a handful of Osmocom-capable handsets at a fraction of the price (ie, at the sysmocom web shop). All recent development of tools has concentrated on the Osmocom platform.
> One exception may be BTS emulators with OpenBTS - the most popular - still running on USRP (or custom hardware by RangeNetworks). Sylvain Munaut already showed the possibility of using an Osmocom phone as a base station, though, so this may become available at some point.
