[ppml] IPv6 initial allocation policy

All of us in the large corporate realm are facing exactly that same
dilemma.  We literally cannot consider deploying IP-v6 until this is
resolved such that we can obtain our own provider independent address


Besides our obligations to our customers and suppliers; we also still
have to meet the new Sarbanes-Oxley rules which may actually prohibit us
from utilizing IP-v6 due to an increased risk that acceptance of a
single provider solution seems to imply.  And regardless, our business
folks simply point out it is a bad business practice to be so dependent
on a single supplier, especially for global corporations like ours.


Take care

Subject: [ppml] IPv6 initial allocation policy


My organization has begun working through the definition of an
enterprise IPv6 acquisition, allocation, and deployment strategy. I was
charged with identifying the process required to acquire IPv6 address
space from the three registrars (ARIN, RIPE, and APNIC) from which we
currently have carrier independent IPv4 allocations. Our thoughts are,
because we have a dual carrier connected Internet POP within each of
these IPv4 allocations we should request provider independent IPv6 space
from each of the registrars. Imagine my surprise when I found that each
registrar has adopted a policy that does not allow for the assignment of
carrier independent IPv6 address space to end customers. This policy
runs counter to an obligation to our customers, supplier and dealer to
provide no less than two connection paths into and out of our Internet
facing network application environments. Not to mention robbing us of
the leverage needed to be able to shop our very considerable WAN circuit
business between carriers. Is anyone aware of a coalition of companies
that is working together to over turn this policy?
