ARIN-prop-232: Integration of Community Networks into existing ISP policy

ARIN-prop-232: Integration of Community Networks into existing ISP policy

Proposal Originator: Kevin Blumberg

Date: 10 September 2016

Problem Statement:

The current Community Networks (Section 6.5.9) has not been utilized by organizations. The definition of a Community Network is overly narrow in scope and has complicated requirements. The existing text does not specify whether an Organization will be considered an end-user or ISP. This policy change would relax the definition of a Community Network, while still retaining modest controls. As well it would integrate the key components into the existing policy without requiring a specific section.

Policy statement:

Current NRPM Text

2.11. Community Network

A community network is any network organized and operated by a volunteer group operating as or under the fiscal support of a nonprofit organization or university for the purpose of providing free or low-cost connectivity to the residents of their local service area. To be treated as a community network under ARIN policy, the applicant must certify to ARIN that the community network staff is 100% volunteers.

New NRPM Text

2.11. Community Network

A community network is any network organized and operated by a volunteer group operating as or under the fiscal support of a nonprofit or equivalent organization or accredited educational institution for the purpose of providing free or low-cost connectivity in their local service area.

Current NRPM Text

6.5.2.1 (b) In no case shall an LIR receive smaller than a /32 unless they
specifically request a /36. In no case shall an ISP receive more than a /16
initial allocation.

New NRPM Text

6.5.2.1 (b) In no case shall an LIR receive smaller than a /32 unless they
specifically request a /36. In no case shall an ISP receive more than a /16
initial allocation. A Community Network may request a /48 or larger
depending on qualification.

Add to NRPM

6.5.2.2 (d) A Community Network that does not qualify under the previous
requirements can provide a plan detailing anticipated assignments to users
for one, two and five year periods, with a minimum of 50 assignments within
5 years.

Remove Section 6.5.9 from NRPM
