Policy Proposal 2007-22
Expand timeframe of Additional Requests

Author: Dan Alexander

Proposal type: modify

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:

The proposal is to modify section 4.2.4.4 of the NRPM

Current wording: "After a subscriber has been a member of ARIN for one
year they may choose to request a six-month supply of IP addresses."

Change to: "After an organization has been an ARIN member in good
standing for one year, they may choose to request up to a 12 month
supply of IP addresses."


Rationale:

Currently, all RIR's provide organizations with at least a 12 month
supply of IPv4 address space when making subsequent requests, with the
exception of the ARIN region. The primary reason for this change is for
continuity among all RIR. In doing so, all established organizations
have a more consistent access to IP resources.

The adjustment does not change demand on IPv4 address space. It only
changes the frequency in which established organizations need to request
address space.

This would allow for fewer potential aggregates allocated to an
organization providing more consolidated routing announcements.

This does not change the requirement on new organizations where
established growth trends have yet to be established.

Timetable for implementation: Immediate
