ARIN-prop-213 Modification to CI Pool Size per Section 4.4
Proposal Originator: Martin Hannigan
Date: 1 October 2014
At the time that this section of policy was written, IXP growth in North America was stagnant. Efforts of late have increased significantly within the IXP standards and other communities to improve critical infrastructure in North America. This effort is paying dividends and we project that a /16 will not be enough to continue to improve global interconnect conditions and support needed IXP CI infrastructure.
Change to text in section 4.4 Micro Allocations:
ARIN will place an equivalent of a /16 of IPv4 address space in a reserve for Critical Infrastructure, as defined in section 4.4. If at the end of the policy term there is unused address space remaining in this pool, ARIN staff is authorized to utilize this space in a manner consistent with community expectations.
Proposed text to replace current text entirely:
ARIN will place an equivalent of a /15 of IPv4 address space in a reserve for Critical Infrastructure, as defined in section 4.4.
