In Ethernet-based aggregation networks, several subscriber premises
may be logically connected to the same interface of an Edge Router.
This document proposes a method for the Edge Router to identify the

Solicitation messages.  The applicability is limited to broadband
network deployment scenarios in which multiple user ports are mapped to
the same virtual interface on the Edge Router.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
