TAD – Traffic Aggregate Description
The Traffic Aggregate Description specifies the aggregation of one or more packet filters and includes their related parameters. The TAD is utilised by a mobile device within the LTE network in order to inform the network of the packet filters to be used for traffic mapping to the correct EPS bearer contexts. The TAD is created in the same format as the TFT and can be seen in the Bearer Resource Allocation Request or Bearer Resource Modification Request messages.
