Achieving Network Autonomy
Wednesday, 14 February, 2:00-2:30 PM, Mozart Room
Presented by: John Sweeting, ARIN Chief Customer Officer

Do you have autonomy over your network? Having autonomy over your network means that your organization directly holds the rights for IPv4 and IPv6 address blocks and those addresses can be considered portable. Obtaining IP addresses directly from ARIN or through an approved transfer provides network autonomy and the ability to set your own routing security policies. The process of requesting IP addresses directly from ARIN is simple, and once obtained, your company will no longer be dependent on an Internet Service Provider (ISP) for its IP addresses. In this session, John Sweeting, the Chief Customer Officer of ARIN, will discuss the importance of network autonomy and the benefits of obtaining IP addresses directly from ARIN. He will also provide insights into the management of Internet number resources in ARIN’s service region, which includes the United States, Canada, and parts of the Caribbean.
