[arin-ppml] New Policy Proposal

The high-level overview is that the allocation is routed to the TPIA provider who then carves it up into smaller blocks and routes them to different 'serving areas' which are geographical groupings of CMTS's. Those serving areas then have smaller DHCP pools (generally /27's or /28's) assigned at the node level. End-users are assigned IP's from the DHCP of the node they are served by. Once the space is provided to the TPIA provider the ISP no longer has control over the routing, renumbering or specific assignments within the TPIA network.

Can you explain the process of how IP addresses are assigned, reassigned, and used for TPIA?  I think I have an idea of how it works based on your policy text, but I'd like confirmation on that.

3. Proposal Version: 1

5. Proposal type: new
6. Policy term: permanent
7. Policy statement:
Insert new section to NRPM to read as follows: Reassignments for Third Party Internet Access (TPIA) over Cable

When IP address resources are reassigned by an ISP to an underlying cable
carrier for use with TPIA, those addresses shall be deemed as utilized
once they are assigned to equipment by the underlying cable carrier.

8. Rationale:
A unique situation exists particularly, and perhaps only, in the Canadian
region that is preventing legitimate ISPs from obtaining subsequent
allocations of IPv4 addresses for use with the Third Party Internet Access
(TPIA) framework that has been mandated by the CRTC (Canada's version of
the FCC).  Adding this section to the NRPM will allow ISPs that intend to
make use of this CRTC mandated framework to obtain the number resources
that they require but are currently unable to obtain.
9. Timetable for implementation: immediate
