Accounting Packets and Anonymous Identity

If you only have one type of quota you could use MAC addresses (most likely
Calling-Station-Id, but confirm with the NAS/AP docs) to identify
subscribers. This approach has a number of issues (one user with multiple
devices will be treated as multiple users, you can't have multiple plans -
all users are treated the same way, MAC address can be spoofed) but it
might be just enough to deliver what you're after.
