GPRS Tunneling protocol has multiple variants such as GTPv1-C, GTPv1-U, GTPv2-C. If you look into GTPv1-C and GTPv2-C header then you can easily make out the difference and why GTPv2-C is being used for LTE signalling among MME, SGW and PGW . One major difference what I found GTPv2-C can piggyback multiple messages but GTPv1-C does not have support of piggybacking. However there was no requirement on change of GTPv1-U so it is being used in LTE as it is.

LTE network uses GTP-U based interface between eNodeB and SGW to transport user data, Is 5G network going to similar GTP based user plane between NG-RAN and UPF ?

Implementation of user plane processing at the user space of node is time consuming and cpu intensive. Is there any library/solution available through which GTP encapsulation/de-capsulation can be done at kernel level to reduce delay ?

I have seen GTP control messages and found that F-TEID consists of an IP address and 32 bit long Tunnel Id. For example: Create Session Response message contains control plane F-TEID and user plane F-TEIDs. I have a question here, why not only TEIDs are included in Create Session Response message when IP address would be common ? or Does it mean control and user plane both F-TEIDs may have different IP address ?
