Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS); LTE; 5G; General Packet Radio System (GPRS) Tunnelling Protocol User Plane (GTPv1-U)
|Publication Date:||1 April 2021|
The present document defines the user plane of GTP used on:
- the Gn and Gp interfaces of the General Packet Radio Service (GPRS);
- the Iu, Gn and Gp interfaces of the UMTS system;
- the S1-U, S11-U, S2a, S2b, X2, S4, S5, S8, S12, M1 and Sn interfaces of the Evolved Packet System (EPS);
- the F1-U, Xn, N3, N9 and N19 interfaces of the 5G System (5GS);
This definition ensures full backwards compatibility with RNC, SGSN and GGSN implementations according to release 7 of 3GPP TS 29.060 .
NOTE: Releases previous to Release-8 have used 3GPP TS 29.060  as normative definition of the user plane of GTP. This shall be considered when essential corrections are included in the present document or in pre-release-8 version of 3GPP TS 29.060 .
Fallback from GTPv1-U to GTPv0-U shall not be supported. Therefore, 3GPP Rel-8 and onwards GTPv1-U entity should not listen to the well-known GTPv0 port 3386. If GTPv1 entity listens to the GTPv0 port, the entity shall silently discard any received GTPv0-U message.
