Is it possible to launch multiple connections on the same device in Network Manager?

If two pppoe connections (or any other type of connection) are assigned to the same device, then if you start the 2nd connection, then Network Manager will disable the 1st connection. Because of this, it is impossible to run several pppoe connections on one interface (for example, one 1 Gb/s channel, two providers and two username/password pairs that can be used simultaneously through the same hub). Is there any solution or way to work around this problem?

Setup two virtual network interfaces. Assign both to your physical network interface. Then assign each virtual network interface one PPOE each.

Create them using the ip link add veth0s type veth peer name veth0d command and then connect them via the bridge with a physical interface? Or it can be done without a bridge?
