QUIC (https://www.chromium.org/quic) is becoming more and more popular on the Internet and we need to build an understanding on how to gather statistics and how to do monitoring of QUIC flows in 5G radio networks. QUIC is being pushed and used by both Google and Akamai. It has been shown to have performance advantages compared to TCP and is being used for transport in the currently drafted HTTP/3 standard (currently inter-draft in the standards track).
