Policy Proposal 2008-4
Minimum Allocation in the Caribbean Region
Author: Cathy Aronson and Paul Andersen
Date: 16 May 2008
Proposal type: new
Policy term: renewable
The minimum IPv4 allocation size for ISPs from the Caribbean portion of the ARIN region is /22.
- Allocation Criteria.
A. The requesting organization must show the efficient utilization of an entire previously allocated /22 from their upstream ISP. This allocation (/22) may have been provided by an ISP’s upstream provider(s), and does not have to be contiguous address space. The organization must meet the requirement of efficient use of 4 /24s.
B. A multi-homed organization must show the efficient utilization of an entire previously allocated /23 from their upstream ISP. This allocation (/23) may have been provided by an ISP’s upstream provider(s), and does not have to be contiguous address space. The organization must meet the requirement of efficient use of 2 /24s.
- Utilization Reporting and Justification. All other ARIN policies regarding the reporting of justification information for the allocation of IPv4 and IPv6 address space will remain in effect.
ARIN staff have noted that organizations in the Caribbean region have problems meeting the current criteria due to the fact that the population in the region is smaller than that of Canada and the US. There is also a lack of competition with many countries in the region faced with a monopoly or duopoly situation in terms of transport providers.
To spur development in the region a similar proposal was passed in this region for the portion of the African region that ARIN administered prior to the formation of AFRINIC. This proposal seeks a similar outcome.
