Policy Proposal Name: Open Access To IPv6

Proposal Originator: Stacy Hughes and Cathy Aronson

Proposal Version: 1.0

Date: 29 May 2009

Proposal type: modify

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:

1) Remove “by advertising that connectivity through its single
aggregated address allocation” from article 3 of section

2) Remove article 4 of section, “be an existing, known ISP in
the ARIN region or have a plan for making at least 200 end-site
assignments to other organizations within 5 years” in its entirety.

Rationale: It is acknowledged that these concepts have been put before
the community in the past. However, with the wisdom of actual
operational experience, the necessity of promoting IPv6 adoption
throughout our region, and emerging native v6 only network models, it
becomes obvious that these modifications to the NRPM are necessary.
Removing the 200 end site requirement enables smaller, but no less
important and viable, networks access to IPv6. Removing the ‘known ISP’
requirement enfranchises new, native v6 businesses that can drive
innovation and expansion in the Internet industry, as well as other
industries. Removing the requirement for a single aggregate announcement
benefits the NRPM itself, as it has been decided by the community that
it should not contain routing advice.

Timetable for implementation: immediately upon BoT ratification
