This is regarding the scenario where GTP-U peer got restarted and again came to service. However,the other GTP-U entity could not detect the restart of peer GTP-U entiity as it keep receving Echo Response. I had read the Restart Counter/(Recovery IE), is used to detect such restarts. But, as per spec 29.281, Restart counter is no longer use and ignored. In such case how such quick GTP-U restarts are detected by peer GTP-U? Is it so that in this case no recovery action needed for User Plane ?
I do see that we have Private Extension IE but again that is vendor specific so that can not be used for interconnection with devices with other Vendors.
