ARIN-prop-229: Transfers for new entrants

ARIN-prop-229 Transfers for new entrants

Proposal Originator: Scott Leibrand, Jason Schiller, Owen DeLong

Date: May 3, 2016

Problem Statement:

New organizations without existing IPv4 space may not always be able to qualify for an initial allocation under NRPM 4.2, particularly if they are categorized as ISPs and subject to 4.2.2.1.1. Use of /24. Now that ARIN's free pool is exhausted, 4.2.1.6. Immediate need states that "These cases are exceptional", but that is no longer correct. End user organizations requiring less a /24 of address space may also be unable to acquire space from their upstream ISP, and may instead need to receive a /24 from ARIN via transfer.

Policy statement:

Replace Section 4.2.2 with:

4.2.2. Initial allocation to ISPs

"All ISP organizations without direct assignments or allocations from ARIN qualify for an initial allocation of up to a /21, subject to ARIN's minimum allocation size. Organizations may qualify for a larger initial allocation by documenting how the requested allocation will be utilized within 24 months for specified transfers, or three months otherwise. ISPs renumbering out of their previous address space will be given a reasonable amount of time to do so, and any blocks they are returning will not count against their utilization.

Replace Section 4.3.2 to read:

4.3.2 Minimum assignment

ARIN's minimum assignment for end-user organizations is a /24.

End-user organizations without direct assignments or allocations from ARIN qualify for an initial assignment of ARIN's minimum assignment size.

Replace the first two sentences of Section 4.3.3. Utilization rate to read:

Organizations may qualify for a larger initial allocation by providing appropriate details to verify their 24-month growth projection for specified transfers, or 12 months otherwise.

Resulting new section 4.3.3 if ARIN-2015-3 is adopted will be:
Organizations may qualify for a larger initial allocation, by providing appropriate details to verify their 24-month growth projection for specified transfers, or 12 months otherwise.

The basic criterion that must be met is a 50% utilization rate within one year.

Resulting new section 4.3.3 if ARIN-2015-3 is not adopted will be:
Organizations may qualify for a larger initial allocation, by providing appropriate details to verify their 24-month growth projection for specified transfers, or 12 months otherwise. The basic criteria that must be met are:

A 25% immediate utilization rate, and

A 50% utilization rate within one year.

A greater utilization rate may be required based on individual network requirements. Please refer to RFC 2050 for more information on utilization guidelines.

Comments:

Timetable for implementation: Immediate

Anything else

The text in 4.2.2 "for specified transfers, or three months otherwise" and the text in 4.3.3 "for specified transfers, or 12 months otherwise" should be stricken if ARIN-prop-227 is adopted.
