specified from  Rel-8  in
TS 23.203, clause 6.2.7 

The BBERF acts as a policy enforcement point for bearer binding, uplink bearer binding verification and event reporting to the PCRF. This function entity is located at a GW (e.g. S-GW in the 3GPP access with PMIP based S5/S8 case, HSGW in the HRPD case).

TS 32.240, clause 3.1 

Part of the operator network, which is outside the core network, which receives and processes CDR files from the core network charging functions. It includes functions that can provide billing mediation and billing or other (e.g. statistical) end applications. It is only applicable to offline charging.

specified from  Rel-5  in
TS 23.228, clause 4.6.4 

The BGCF determines the next hop for routing the SIP message. This determination may be based on information received in the protocol, administrative information, and/or database access. For PSTN terminations, the BGCF determines the network in which PSTN/CS Domain breakout is to occur. If the routing determination is such that the breakout is to occur in the same network in which the BGCF is located, then the BGCF shall select a MGCF that will be responsible for the interworking with the PSTN/CS Domain. If the routing determination results in break out in another network, the BGCF will forward this session signalling to another BGCF in the selected network. If the routing determination results in the session being destined for another IMS network, the BGCF forwards the message to an I‑CSCF in this IMS network. If the BGCF determines that there is another IP destination for the next hop, it forwards the message to that contact point.

TS 23.246, clause 5.1 

The BM-SC provides functions for MBMS user service provisioning and delivery. It may serve as an entry point for content provider MBMS transmissions, used to authorise and initiate MBMS Bearer Services within the PLMN and can be used to schedule and deliver MBMS transmissions.

See Subscriber Data in the BM-SC   here.

TS 23.203, clause P.6.2 

The BPCF is the policy control entity in the Fixed Broadband Access network. The complete specification of the BPCF is defined in BBF TR-134 and BBF TR-203 and it is out of the scope of the 3GPP.

TS 33.220, clause 4.2.1 

A generic BSF and the UE mutually authenticate using the AKA protocol, and agree on session keys that are afterwards applied between the UE and a NAF.

See Subscriber Data in the BSF   here.

specified from  GSM Phase 2  in
TS 09.02, clause 4.1.4 

The BSS is the system of base station equipments (transceivers, controllers, etc.) which is viewed by the MSC through a single A and/or Iu-CS interface as being the entity responsible for communicating with Mobile Stations in a certain area. Similarly, in PLMNs supporting GPRS, the BSS is viewed by the SGSN through a single Gb or Iu-PS interface.

defined from  GSM Rel-96
Source:   TS 23.002, clause 4.2.1.2 

A Base Station Controller (BSC) is a network component in the PLMN with the functions for control of one or more BTS.
