Draft Policy 2009-5
IPv6 Multiple Discrete Networks
Version/Date: 21 July 2009
Organizations with multiple discrete IPv6 networks desiring to request new or additional address space under a single Organization ID must meet the following criteria:
- The organization shall be a single entity and not a consortium of smaller independent entities.
- The organization must have compelling criteria for creating discrete networks.
Examples of a discrete network might include:
- Regulatory restrictions for data transmission,
- Geographic distance and diversity between networks,
- Autonomous multihomed discrete networks.
- The organization must keep detailed records on how it has allocated space to each location, including the date of each allocation.
- The organization should notify ARIN at the time of the request their desire to apply this policy to their account.
- Requests for additional space:
- Organization must specify on the application which discreet network(s) the request applies to
- Each network will be judged against the existing utilization criteria specified in 6.5.2 as if it were a separate organization, rather than collectively as would be done for requests outside of this policy.
This proposed policy is suggested as NRPM 6.11.
The policy is intended to provide parity between current IPv4 policy and allow discrete network operators to obtain IPv6 space.
Timetable for implementation: Immediately
