Network Interface Device Support on the L3 Interface
The Network Interface Device (NID) support feature enables support for the NID functionality on a device without including an NID hardware in the network. This feature combines the Customer-Premises Equipment (CPE) and the NID functionality into a physical device. The following are the advantages of configuring the NID functionality:
Eliminates the need for a physical NID device and trunk roll.
Supports both the managed CPE feature set and the NID requirements.
