As per my LTE knowledge, I have never seen a case where data packets from multiple DRBs mapped to a single EPS bearer. In fact, each bearer establishes in network is unique in terms of QoS. And each EPS bearer is mapped to one DRB bearer at eNodeB. So I am thinking what would be the scenarios when it becomes to send data of different radio bearers to same EPS bearer.

Let's us assume one UE has connection with different PGWs but the UE is connected to same eNodeB. There might be a case, SGW is also different but unlikely since SGW is selected mainly based on UE location. However, there could be a chance due to overload at SGW, a new SGW has been selected for second bearer.

Now we have One UE, two different bearers, one eNodeB, two SGWs and two different PGWs due to different APNs.
In this case, how eNodeB would come to know whether it should combined the packets and send to same EPS bearer or it should not do like that. Even though we assume SGW is same for two different bearers and PGWs are different, it is logically in-correct to implement such case.

Would you like to share your use case so that I can think in that direction ?

I have read that multiple SDF can be combined into an single EPS bearer, each DRB will be associated with one SDF hence multiple DRB can be combined into an single EPS bearer right?

Question 1.
In case 3 different bearers ( 1 Default + 1 dedicated for Youtube + 1 dedicated for Skype ) are established and after some time the Youtube Policy is removed from GGSN then will the established bearer will be terminated?

Question 2.
Suppose there is a requirement of giving the same QOS to set of application ( Youtube and Whatsapp ) then will there be only one dedicated bearer for both application or two dedicated bearers will be established?

If one bearer is established for both the application then what if the user stops using one of the applications or the policy is removed from GGSN for one application, will the dedicated bearer be terminated?
