French term or phrase: du backbone (BST)
I am translating the schedule to a royal decree concerning a company which provides telecommunication services. Many of these are terms in English, translated to French, such as dispatchings assistés par ordinateur, which is CAD or computer aided dispatching, centre d'opérations mobile which is MOC or the Mobile Operations Center.

What I have found for backbone (BST) is contradictory... BST could be binary search trees or it could be Base Station connected to a backbone as in http://www.yitran.com/pitel.htm.

I can't tell from my text what in tarnation this is.
