I managed to take a capture of an IuB interace (link between NodeB and RNC) on my laptop. I am expecting to see FP PDUs, however they all appear as UDP. How can I setup/configure Wireshark so that it recognizes that these frames are FP? Wireshark doesn't give me the option to decode as FP. Do I require additional information to decode these frames? Is this possible without obtaining Catapult DCT2000 or Tektronix K12 format traces? I'd like to see a protocol stack similar to what's posted on Wireshark's wiki in regards to FP.

Thanks, Davide

Check out similar questions here Basically Wireshark needs a lot of information on the FP stream to be able to dissect it, if you have Wireshark 1.10.x and the NBAP and RRC setup information is present in the trace Wireshark can dissect some FP flows.
