ARIN has issued its initial response to ACSP Suggestion 2015.4. The 
suggestion and response text are provided below. This suggestion is now 
closed and is available at:



Communications and Member Services
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)

Suggestion: *
Description: WHOIS info does not allow to put unique names on ASN's that 
are part of a range assignment. As we prepare to roll out a BGP-LU 
product it would be super helpful on several of our range allocations if 
we could place the name of the actual metro area being served.

Value to Community: reflect more accurate and useful information in the 


Though it is not currently possible to identify separate AS number names 
for AS numbers inside of a grouping of AS numbers in a single 
registration, ARIN will accept requests to split AS range registrations 
into individual AS number registration records to make unique AS naming 
possible.Requests to split an AS range registration can be made through 
"Ask ARIN" within ARIN Online or an email to hostmaster at arin.net. 
Because ARIN can provide this service to customers, no further action is 
necessary and this suggestion will be closed.
