Prop-063: Reducing timeframe of IPv4 allocations from twelve to six months


Introduction
Introduction

  • Proposal to reduce APNIC’s allocation time window from 12 months to 6 months


Current problem
Current Problem

  • APNIC’s current allocation time window is twelve months

    • In the IPv4 run out phase, this means that any LIR applying for IPv4 address space will receive sufficient for their projected needs for the next 12 months

    • With the rapidly diminishing pool, this is very likely to cause unfair distribution of the remaining IPv4 pool


Situation in other rirs
Situation in other RIRs

  • This proposal has not been submitted to the other RIRs

  • AfriNIC, ARIN, LACNIC and RIPE currently make IPv4 allocations based on an LIR's estimated needs for up to twelve months


Details of the proposal
Details of the Proposal

  • It is proposed that APNIC change the timeframe for which IPv4 allocations are made to to meet LIR's needs from twelve months to six months

    • This means that an LIR applying for IPv4 address space will only receive sufficient address space for their needs for the upcoming 6 months. Once that 6 month allocation has run out, the LIR will need to apply for another 6 month allocation

    • This excludes LIRs applying for APNIC’s minimum allocation; they will continue to receive an allocation for the upcoming 12 months


Advantages
Advantages

  • Ensures that there is a more even distribution of the remaining IPv4 address pool

  • Ensures that organisations have a greater opportunity to participate in the remaining IPv4 address pool during the runout phase


Disadvantages
Disadvantages

  • Organisations applying for IPv4 address space only receive sufficient resources for the next six months

  • Organisations applying for IPv4 address space may have double the annual application administration to perform

  • APNIC Secretariat may also have double the administration to perform


Impact on apnic members and nirs
Impact on APNIC members and NIRs

  • This proposal impacts all APNIC members

  • This proposal has no direct impact on NIRS, but impacts members of NIRs in the same way it impacts APNIC members

    • Note: This proposal does NOT impact LIRs seeking APNIC’s minimum allocation


Additional data
Additional data

  • Looking at APNIC member allocations over last 2 years, number of LIRs returning for more resources:

    <3 months: 44

    3 - 6 months: 54

    6 - 12 months: 90

    12+ months: 37
