For incoming data the task if to find out the right bearer for which on GTP-U traffic TFT is applied, once we get the TFT number/id we redirect the GTP traffic based on the TFT-GTPtunnel mapping.

TFT consists of following parameter (few or all will be used to get the TFT info depends on the configuration)
• Source address (with subnet mask)
• IP protocol number (TCP, UDP)
• Destination port range
• Source port range
• IPSec Security Parameter Index (SPI)
• Type of Service (TOS) (IPv4)
• Flow-Label (IPv6 only)
