Upcoming APNIC policy implementations ________________________________________________________________________
On 4 August 2008, APNIC will implement two policy proposals that reached consensus at the APNIC 25 Policy SIG in Taipei, Taiwan in February 2008. The APNIC Executive Council (EC) endorsed the proposals during their May 2008 meeting. The two policy changes are:
- Changing the minimum IPv4 allocation size to /22
This change will make it easier for small ISPs to receive direct allocations from APNIC.
- Adding an alternative IPv6 initial allocation criteria
This change will make it easier for more ISPs to receive IPv6 allocations from APNIC by enabling current LIRs with IPv4 allocations to receive IPv6 initial allocations without a plan for making 200 assignments.
To view the history of these policy proposals, see:
