Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS); LTE; 3GPP Evolved Packet System (EPS); Evolved General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) Tunnelling Protocol for Control plane (GTPv2-C); Stage 3
|Publication Date:||1 April 2019|
The present document specifies the stage 3 of the control plane of the GPRS Tunnelling Protocol, Version 2 (GTPv2-C).
GTPv2-C shall be used over:
- the S2a, S2b, S3, S4, S5, S8, S10, S11, S16, Sm and Sn signalling interfaces in EPC, specified in 3GPP TS 23.401  and 3GPP TS 23.402 .
- the N26 signalling interface between EPC and 5GC, specified in 3GPP TS 23.501  and 3GPP TS 23.502 .
GTPv2-C based protocols shall also be used over the Sv (see 3GPP TS 29.280 ) and S101/S121 (see 3GPP TS 29.276 ) interfaces.
In this document, unless otherwise specified, the S2a, S2b, S5 and S8 interfaces refer to the GTP-based S2a, S2b, S5 and S8 interfaces respectively.
The present document specifies functions, procedures and information which apply to GERAN Iu mode. However, functionality related to GERAN Iu mode is neither maintained nor enhanced.
