This document describes the way of supporting multiple upstream interfaces for an IGMP/MLD proxy device. The proposed extension enables that an IGMP/MLD proxy device receives multicast packets through multiple upstream interfaces. The upstream interface is selected with manually configured supported address prefixes and interface priority value. A take-over operation switching from an inactive upstream interface to an active upstream interface is also considered.
