Policy Proposal 2008-5
Dedicated IPv4 block to facilitate IPv6 Deployment

On 17 September 2008 ARIN held a Public Policy Meeting at its Caribbean
Sector Meeting in Nassau, Bahamas, to discuss active policy proposals in
the ARIN region and gain a Caribbean perspective on ARIN policies and

Stacy Hughes, as a representative of the ARIN Advisory Council,
presented the proposal and its rationale. Meeting participants suggested
that the /12 could come from any of ARIN’s address space (as opposed to
coming from the last /8). It was also suggested that the space for the
/12 should be identified and reserved now, instead of waiting for the
last /8. The Advisory Council received a report summarizing the policy
discussion for use in its deliberations.

Complete notes from the discussion about "Policy Proposal 2008-5:
Dedicated IPv4 block to facilitate IPv6 Deployment" are available at

The full report of that meeting, which includes presentations and
summary notes, is available on the ARIN website at
