FIRE LTE testbeds for open experimentation
In ovs, we gather an OpenvSwitch GTP patch that allows us to manage GTP tunnels https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/579431/. It was written by Niti Rohilla and Saloni Jain from TATA Consultancy Services (TCS). The patch resembles the work on GRE/VXLAN tunnels already implemented in the Linux kernel. The patch is compatible with OVS version 2.5.1, but can be also downloaded as part of OVS 2.6.1 from the git repository of Ashish Kurian https://github.com/ashishkurian/ovs. To build the OVS with the GTP support one has to follow the procedure:
git clone https://github.com/ashishkurian/ovs.git
dpkg-buildpackage -b -us -uc
dpkg -i openvswitch-common_2.6.90-1_amd64.deb
We also included a patch for a usespace marching of gtp_teid. The datapath modification of the gtp_teid is still on-going.

tracker.py is a script that observes both the control plane and the data plane between the EPC and ENB, to gather the parameters required by caching.
