The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) is seeking  proposals
from Internet Colocation providers for hosting services for ARIN
equipment and applications used in the operation of ARIN's public-facing
Internet services. Many of the services provided by ARIN are important
parts of  critical Internet infrastructure. ARIN is looking for sites
that are situated  on the west coast of the United States or Canada.

The  vendor must provide or allow:

    * 2 X  1Gb (Gigabit Ethernet) Full Duplex, 1000Mb, no auto.
    * Native  IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity.
    * ARIN  BGP announcements.
    * A /24 IPv4 Address Assignment with transit to the Internet.
    * A /48 IPv6 Address Assignment with transit to the Internet.
    * A full view of the IPv4 and IPv6 routing table.
    * 24x7x365  NOC contact information for problem resolution.
    * Environmental  and security infrastructure at their facilities.

All contractual terms and conditions related to the work  performed,
nondisclosure of information, or liability issues must be  detailed.
ARIN will require that the vendor  performing this service sign a
nondisclosure agreement due to the proprietary  nature of the
information ARIN retains for its subscribers. 

Proposals  must be submitted before 31 July 2008 for consideration, and
must include a  statement of work, full pricing details, and references.

We anticipate  vendor selection by 30 August with deployment no later
than 60 days after the  contract is awarded.
