Anycast Assignment Request Form

The RIPE NCC is now allocating IPv4 address space to its members (LIRs) from the last /8 (185/8) that was allocated to the RIPE NCC by IANA. IPv4 addresses from this /8 are allocated according to section 5.6 of “IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment Policies for the RIPE NCC Service Region”. No more IPv4 Anycast can be assigned.
