Draft Policy ARIN-2012-7
Reassignments for Third Party Internet Access (TPIA) over Cable

ARIN-2012-7 has been revised.

In 4.2.3.8 third bullet, "IP assignments assigned through" was changed 
to "IP allocations issued through".

This draft policy is open for discussion on this mailing list and will 
be on the agenda at the upcoming ARIN Public Policy Meeting in Dallas.

Draft Policy ARIN-2012-7
Reassignments for Third Party Internet Access (TPIA) over Cable

Date: 12 October 2012

Policy statement:

Insert new section to NRPM to read as follows:

4.2.3.8 IP addresses reassigned by an ISP to an incumbent cable operator 
for use with Third Party Internet Access (TPIA) will be counted as fully 
used once they are assigned to equipment by the underlying cable carrier 
provided they meet the following requirements:

* initial assignments to each piece of hardware represent the smallest 
subnet reasonably required to deploy service to the customer base served 
by the hardware

* additional assignments to each piece of hardware are made only when 
all previous assignments to that specific piece of hardware are at least 
80% used and represent a three month supply

* IP allocations issued through 4.2.3.8 are non-transferable via section 
8.3 and section 8.4 for a period of 36 months. In the case of a section 
8.2 transfer the IP assignment must be utilized for the same purpose or 
needs based justification at a rate consistent with intended use.

Rationale:
A unique situation exists particularly, and perhaps only, in the 
Canadian region that is preventing legitimate ISPs from obtaining 
subsequent allocations of IPv4 addresses for use with the Third Party 
Internet Access (TPIA) framework that has been mandated by the CRTC 
(Canada's version of the FCC). Adding this section to the NRPM will 
allow ISPs that intend to make use of this CRTC mandated framework to 
obtain the number resources that they require but are currently unable 
to obtain.

Timetable for implementation: immediate
