Spanish term or phrase:telephony acronyms
Looking for an explanation of the acronyms CC.EE. and EE.BB. in the following text:
Las averías deberán ser atendidas las 24 horas del día durante los siete días de la semana.
Las fallas de las EE.BB. deberán ser reportadas al CCR (Centro de Control de Reparos) para ser registradas en la Base de Datos.
Las fallas de los terminales deberán ser reportadas a Post Venta CC.EE para ser registradas en la Base de Datos y las acciones respectivas.
Explanation: "CC.EE." is the plural abbreviation for an entity that would be abbreviated "C.E." in the singular. Nothing comes immediately to mind; however, the full phrase "Post Venta CC.EE." suggests something along the lines of "Post-Sale Service Center" or "After-Sale Customer Engineering," to name just two possibilities.
Important note: In the context of cellular/mobile telephony, "terminales" refers to the actual telephone instruments that the users or customers carry around. Therefore, it should NOT be translated as the false cognate "terminals." I usually say "telephone units" or "mobile telephones."
Hope this helps a little,
