Posted: Tue, 25 January 2011

The American Registry for Internet Numbers, ARIN is soliciting proposals from Internet service providers (ISPs) to bid on the delivery of Internet transit to ARIN's network, ASN 10745. This network is part of ARIN's provisioning network and is a part of critical Internet infrastructure. ARIN is looking for qualified providers that are able to provide service to its rack within Equinix's DC4 datacenter located in Ashburn, Virginia.

All contractual terms and conditions related to the work performed, nondisclosure of information, or liability issues must be detailed. ARIN will require that the vendor performing this service sign a nondisclosure agreement due to the proprietary nature of the information ARIN retains for its subscribers.
