MME may get this information from HSS in User-Location-Answer message. In case, HSS does not include MIP-Agent-Info AVP in ULA, MME will use local policies and configuration to get PGW IP address. HSS provides either FQDN or IP address for PGW.

Hi Friends,
I saw somewhere that MME will also do a DNS query for P-GW. As i know S-Gw will do a query for P-Gw address. Is there any situation that MME will do a query for P-GW address using APN? and after this query how MME will use the P-Gw Address.

and is there any possibility of Doing DNS query by P-Gw to get any other nodes Ips and under what conditions P-Gw will do a DNS query?
