Radius 3GPP-GPRS Negotiated QoS profile avp is decoded as GTP QOS of Service by
wireshark.But the two attributes are different.The definetion is shown below.

The definetion of Radius 3GPP-GPRS Negotiated QoS profile.Defined in 3GPP TS
29.061 V6.9.0 (2006-09).
Octets        8    7    6    5    4    3    2    1
1        3GPP type = 5
2        3GPP Length= L
3 - L        UTF-8 encoded QoS profile

3GPP Type: 5
Length: For GGSN, L  37 (release 7 or higher) or L  33 (release 6 or release
5) or L  27 (release 4 or release 99) or L = 11 (release 98). For P-GW, the
length varies depending on the value of QCI. See below for details.
QoS profile value: Text type
UTF-8 encoded QoS profile syntax:
"<Release indicator> – <release specific QoS IE UTF-8 encoding>"
<Release indicator> = UTF-8 encoded number (two characters) :
    For GGSN:
"98" = Release 98
"99"= Release 99 or release 4
"05"= Release 5 or release 6
"07"= Release 7 or higher
For P-GW:
"08"= Release 8 or higher
   <release specific QoS profile UTF-8 encoding> = UTF-8 encoded QoS profile
for the release indicated by             the release indicator.
    The UTF-8 encoding of a QoS IE is defined as follows: each octet is
described by 2 UTF-8 encoded characters, defining its hexadecimal
    For GGSN:
    The QoS profile definition is in 3GPP TS 24.008 [54].
        The release 98 QoS profile data is 3 octets long, which then results in
a 6 octets UTF-8 encoded string.
        The release 99 and release 4 QoS profile data is 11 octets long, which
results in a 22 octets UTF-8 encoded string. 
    The release 5 and release 6 QoS profile data is 14 octets long, which
results in a 28 octets UTF-8 encoded string.
    The release 7 (and higher) QoS profile data is 16 octets long, which
results in a 32 octets UTF-8 encoded string.
For P-GW: 
    It contains the following QoS parameters associated with the EPS bearer: 
-    QCI
-    ARP
-    GBR QoS information (UL/DL MBR, UL/DL GBR) or UL/DL APN-AMBR. In other
words if the value of QCI indicates a GBR bearer, the GBR QoS information shall
be present. If the value of QCI indicates a non-GBR bearer, the APN-AMBR
information shall be present.  
The encoding of the EPS bearer QoS profile parameters is specified in 3GPP TS
29.274 [81]: ARP is specified in Bearer QoS IE; QCI, UL MBR, DL MBR, UL MBR and
DL MBR are specified in Flow QoS IE; UL APN-AMBR and DL APN-AMBR are specified
For GBR QCIs, the encoding of UTF-8 encoded QoS Profile field shall be as
1-3        <Release indicator> -" = "08-" (UTF-8 encoded)
4-5        ARP (UTF-8 encoded)
6-7        QCI (UTF-8 encoded)
8-m        UL MBR (UTF-8 encoded)
(m+1)-n        DL MBR (UTF-8 encoded)
(n+1)-o        UL GBR (UTF-8 encoded)
(o+1)-p        DL GBR (UTF-8 encoded)
                            GBR Bearer
For non-GBR QCIs, the UL/DL MBR and UL/DL GBR fields shall not be present; UL
APN-AMBR and DL APN-AMBR fields shall be encoded (in UTF-8 encoded format)
respectively after the QCI field.
1-3        <Release indicator> -" = "08-" (UTF-8 encoded)
4-5        ARP (UTF-8 encoded)
6-7        QCI (UTF-8 encoded)
8-m        UL  APN-MBR (UTF-8 encoded)
(m+1)-n        DL APN-MBR (UTF-8 encoded)
                 Non-GBR Bearer
For example,the length of the Negotiated QoS profile is 23 octects form the
version field.If the radius QoS profile is decoded as GTP Qos attribute,the
length which is form the version field requires 25 octects at least.So the
error occures.
