Hi Skeeve,Thanks for your feedback and suggestions. I understand the situation you are in, as we have received similar comments from some other members. In fact, APNIC is currently implementing a project to address such filtering problems.
The approach we will take is based on that used by some other RIRs. It will involve making several announcements from each new range, then checking the visibility of the ranges to identify any filters in place. APNIC will then try to contact the ISPs using the filter to encourage them to update their routers accordingly. Although APNIC will not be able to guarantee that all routing filters will be updated before allocations are made from new ranges, we do hope that this project will improve the situation.
Regarding your suggestion to announce new ranges six months before APNIC starts making allocations, I'm afraid that will not normally be practical. Various factors (such as the size of allocation we receive from IANA, the available address pool, and the request rates around the time of the allocation) affect how long APNIC is able to wait before making allocations from new ranges. In some cases, this may be as little as
one month from the time we first announce receipt of the allocation.Thanks again for your input. We would certainly be interested in hearing any other suggestions for dealing with this problem.

Just an opinion... But as someone who is currently experiencing the pain of using a /19 in 125/8 at present and have our customers suffering greatly, I think APNIC needs to do something better to be approaching the bogon list managers and perhaps giving notice of 6 months or some such that these ranges will be used so the pain will be a lot less. ...Skeeve -----Original Message----- From: apnic-talk-bounces at lists dot apnic dot net [mailto:apnic-talk-bounces at lists dot apnic dot net] On Behalf Of John Tran Sent: Monday, 9 January 2006 3:15 PM To: apnic-announce at lists dot apnic dot net Cc: apops at apops dot net; sanog at sanog dot org Subject: [apnic-talk] [Apnic-announce] APNIC new IPv4 addresses (121/8 and122/7) Dear colleagues APNIC received IPv4 address blocks 121/8 and 122/7 from IANA in January 2006 and will be making allocations from these ranges in the near future.
