Draft Policy ARIN-2014-7
Section 4.4 Micro Allocation Conservation Update

Date: 4 March 2014

Problem Statement:

Two networks interconnecting are generally considered to be private 
peers. The current policy allows an IXP to receive a micro-allocation 
with only two devices. Given IPv4 exhaustion and the growth of IXPs in 
North America it is prudent to raise the minimum criteria so that 
micro-allocation space is not wasted.

Policy statement:

Change the following paragraph in Section 4.4 from:

Exchange point operators must provide justification for the allocation, 
including: connection policy, location, other participants (minimum of 
two total), ASN, and contact information.

To:

Exchange point operators must provide justification for the allocation, 
including: connection policy, location, other participants (minimum of 
three total), ASN, and contact information.

Comments:
a.Timetable for implementation: Immediate
b.Anything else:
