I’ll be prone to post stories related to GSM / 3G / 4G /… mobile networks, as comes naturally when being an Osmocom dev. But what tags to give it? There’s the “mobile” tag, but “mobile” says “Mobile app/web development” which is completely unrelated to the core network elements providing the actual radio service for phones and modems. “Mobile networks” could match “networking”, but there again I suspect this is more about IP networks, internet and intranet, clouds and security. Does the topic of GSM/UMTS match “hardware”? You need radio hardware for it … but again no full match.

What tags do you think should I give Osmocom or general mobile networking stories? Should there be separate tags like ‘GSM’ for 2G, ‘UMTS’ for 3G etc., or should there be a single general one like “mobilenetworks”? “cellular”? What would be a good name?? :)

    I think networking is a decent fit for now. Standard practice is to only create new tags when the existing ones become overcrowded.

      hardware would be valid as well when the article is about interesting applications of cellular gear.

      an RF (Radio Frequency) tag might be a good option - I’m not sure if it needs to be broken down to GSM / UMTS etc
