Tello state packets from drones in station mode

In station mode, all Tello drones will be sending their state packets to port:8890. In that case, how can we differentiate the packet came from which drone. Is it possible to differentiate UDP packets based on their source IP address?
Has anyone implemented a prototype for receiving state packets from multiple drones in station mode?

On the client level you should listen to the 8890 port on the certain IP-address and read state strings that are coming from it.
For logging purposes you may append timestamp and IP-address to the state data.

Thanks @Mike Shock . But at a time I can listen to only one IP address at one port right? Or is there a way to listen to multiple IP addresses from the same port at the same time?

Certainly you can simultaneously connect to several devices (drones in our case) and receive data from them.
What programming language and libraries are you using?

Thanks Mike for helping with this issue. I was able to implement this
