[arin-ppml] Application requests for IPv6?

Folks -

We also received an related inquiry regarding legacy IPv4 holders and IPv6 -

NRPM 6.5.8.1 offers several ways for an end user organization to qualify for
an IPv6 assignment from ARIN.  The criteria that most often applies is when
the organization can "qualify for an IPv4 assignment or allocation from ARIN
under the IPv4 policy currently in effect".  There is no requirement to have
a signed RSA/LRSA under this criteria.  An organization can qualify for IPv6,
regardless of whether they have existing IPv4 space, as long as it can meet
the criteria of ANY existing IPv4 policy in effect.  Once qualified, if they choose
to proceed, they are assigned the IPv6 resources under the standard RSA.

Hi Marty-

In response to your recent inquiry about IPv6 requests to ARIN, staff has produced the following data.

Total IPv6 Requests January 2009 through January 2011:

ISP requests  received – 748
ISP requests approved - 712 or 96%

Generally speaking, for ISPs, there are almost no denials for IPv6 address requests.  Anything not approved was likely an end-user who put in an ISP request and needed to resubmit as an end-user.  In fact, during this past year, there have been no denials to ISPs/LIRs under the IPv6 allocation policy which seems to indicate that the current policy has been very effective.

End-user requests received -  464
End-user requests approved – 403 or 87%

Almost all of the denied end-user requests were to small single-homed networks who were unable to meet any one of the policy criteria: they either (1) weren’t  using enough IPv4 address space to qualify under current IPv4 policy, (2) had no legacy space, or (3) didn’t qualify as a community network.

I hope this information helps!

Regards,
Leslie
