BSS - Base Station System

In GSM the Base Station System is a term given to a BSC (Base Station Controller) and the BTS (Base Transceiver Station) associated with it. The number of BTS associated with a BSC is dependent on the manufacturer. Although not mandatory, through interpretation of the Abis interface standard BTS and BSC employed within a BSS will always be supplied by the same manufacturer.
