Abstract

See full text

A method performed by a network node (110) for handling a GTP tunnel failure in a radio communications network (100) is provided. The network node (110) receives a release message from a mobility management node (150) for a wireless device (121) associated with the network node (110). The release message comprises information identifying at least one E-UT-RAN Radio Access Bearer, E-RAB, and information that the release message was caused by a DPRS Tunneling Protocol, GTP, error indication. The network node (110) also allocates one or more tunnel endpoint identifiers, TEIDs, for the at least one E-RAB identified in the received release message. Then, the network node (110) transmits a modification message to the mobility management node (150) to modify the at least one E-RAB identified in the received release message, said modification message comprising the allocated one or more TEIDs for the at least one E-RAB. A network node for handling a GTP tunnel failure in a radio communications network (100) is also provided. A mobility management node (150) and a method therein for handling a GTP tunnel failure in a radio communications network (100) is also provided.
