EE.BB. = base stations. (More below)


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,
HC
