cell phone routing and switching

how does a cell phone work?   i understand it connects via 3g, or LTE or 4g, but on the internet end what is going on?  the internet has backbone routers connecting via BGP or MPLS to each other, what happens in between the internet backbone and the cell tower that distributes the LTE or 4g/3g signal? what protocols are involved? etc.

Your phone connects to the site. The site has BSC (base station controller)
