Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2013-8
Subsequent Allocations for New Multiple Discrete Networks
Date: 16 May 2014
AC's assessment of conformance with the Principles of Internet Number
This proposal enables fair and impartial number resource administration
by documenting how to get a new block for a new discrete network.
Previous versions of the policy did have this information and over time
it has been removed.
This proposal is technically sound. There is a need for discrete
networks and an organization should have a policy that would allow it to
create a new discrete network.
This proposal is supported by the community. There has been some concern
about the criterial that will be used and this version has been updated
with the current thinking on the criteria.
Add the following statement to section 4.5.4.
Upon verification that the organization has shown evidence of deployment
of the new discrete network site, the new network(s) shall be allocated
the minimum allocation size under section 220.127.116.11 unless the
organization can demonstrate additional need using the immediate need
Add an additional reference to section 6.11.5.b such that it references
both the initial allocation and subsequent allocation sections of the
IPv6 LIR policy.
"Each network will be judged against the existing utilization criteria
specified in 6.5.2 and 6.5.3 as if it were a separate organization..."
a. Timetable for implementation: immediate
b. This policy is being proposed based upon the Policy Implementation &
Experience Report from ARIN 32.
c: Older versions of the MDN policy did contain new network criteria.
This criteria appears to have been dropped during subsequent rewrites of
the MDN policy. "The organization must not allocate a CIDR block larger
than the current minimum assignment size of the RIR (currently /20 for
ARIN) to a new network."
