ARIN-prop-227 Change timeframes for all IPv4 requests to 24 months
Proposal Originator: Owen DeLong
Date: 20 April 2016
Disparity in timeframes between pre-approvals for waiting list and pre-approval for transfers is creating difficulties for organizations that initially apply to be on the waiting list and subsequently elect to satisfy their needs through transfers.
Therefore, this proposal seeks to set all timeframes for IPv4 request approvals to 24 months. Prior to runout, such a change could have created great disparity in resource distribution just because of coincidence of request timing. With the free pool gone, this is no longer an issue.
Retitle section 22.214.171.124.3 "Three months" to "Time Horizon".
In section 126.96.36.199.3 body, replace "three months" with "24 months".
In section 188.8.131.52, replace the term "three months" with "24 months".
In section 4.3.3, replace both instances of "one year" with "24 months".
In section 184.108.40.206, replace the entire paragraph which currently reads:
"ISPs may request up to a 3-month supply of IPv4 addresses from ARIN, or a 24-month supply via 8.3 or 8.4 transfer. Determination of the appropriate allocation to be issued is based on efficient utilization of space within this time frame, consistent with the principles in 4.2.1."
"ISPs may request up to a 24 month supply of IPv4 addresses."
