=== Gb BSSGP Initialization / PCU bring-up
-FIXME
+The BSSGP initialization directly follows NS connection establishment described in <<ns_init>>.
+OsmoPCU allocates BVC context for BVCI given by OsmoBTS which in turn gets it from OpenBSC.
+In addition to BVCI identifying OsmoPCU side of BSSGP connection there is also special BVCI which is accepted by OsmoPCU
+in accordance with TS 08.18 § 5.4.1: BVCI = 0 represents signaling data between SGSN and PCU in contrast
+to PTP (Peer-To-Peer) user's data.
+The mapping between BSSGP PDUs and signaling or PTP BVCIs is available in TS 08.18 Table 5.4.
