Initial Information

#[INITIAL INFORMATION]#

% Which type of assignment is the End User requesting? (IPv4/IPv6/ASN)

type-of-assignment: IPv4/IPv6/ASN

% Why do you need this temporary Assignment? 
why: Assignment is needed for our annual banking conference and exhibition that will take place end of this month in Geneva. The conference and exhibition will take place simultaneously at the same location.

% The End User should be aware that this resource will be for a specific time
% limit. It will be automatically de registered at the end of the approved
% assignment period. % Please add more information on the purpose(Event/Research) and duration of this
% request. purpose: Event website-if-available: http://www.nsb.nn/conference/2012 % The date should be in the following format: yyyymmdd start-date: 20120325 end-date: 20120329

In the type of assignment field, you should indicate all the different resources you are requesting for your End User with this request.

In the "Why:" field, you need to tell us why you are requesting this temporary assignment as well as explain the detailed technical requirements of the requested resources/size.

You should also indicate the purpose of the assignment, including the website of the mentioned event/research and the start and end dates of the event/research.

IPv4 section

#[IPv4 section]#
%
% Why is PI address space required rather than PA address space? 

why-pi-v4: North Santa will be multihomed. We cannot use PA address space because our uplinks do not allow their address space to be announced by other Autonomous Systems.

% Is the End User requesting extra address space for routing and/or 
% administrative reasons? If yes, explain why?

why-routing-v4:

% Please confirm if the End User is aware of the consequences and disadvantages 
% of PI address space? (yes/no)
% For details, you can refer to section 8.0 “PA vs. PI Address Space” of the IPv4
% Address Allocation and Assignment Policies. confirmation-v4: Yes

In the "why-pi:" field, explain why PA address space cannot be used for this assignment. Remember that you should encourage the use of PA address space where possible.

If the End User is requesting extra address space for routing and/or administrative reasons, then you need to explain how much address space is being requested due to this and explain the reasons behind it.

You must ensure that the End User understands and accepts that PI address space may be more difficult or more expensive to route than PA address space and then confirm this in the "confirmation:" field. You can find more details on the consequences and disadvantages of PI address space in the document "IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy for the RIPE NCC Service Region" under section 8.0 “PA vs. PI Address Space”.

% ADDRESSING PLAN
% How will the End User use this IPv4 address space?
% 
%       Subnet      Immediate    Intermediate  Entire      Purpose
%       size (/nn)  Requirement  Requirement   Period
subnet: /24,/25,/26 /24,/25,/26  /24,/25,/26  /24,/25,/26 Laptops/wifi-enabled devices
subnet: /26         /26          /26           /26         Servers, Routers, Switches, firewalls and Workstations
totals: /23         /23          /23           /23 

number-of-subnets: 2

The addressing plan shows how the End User will use the requested IPv4 address space. Please note that during peak periods, at least 50% of the total address space applied for must be used at the same time.

You can repeat the "subnet" row as many times as needed. Delete any empty "subnet" fields before you send the request. In the "Subnet size (/nn)" column, enter a slash notation prefix for each subnet. Each entry should be large enough to contain the number of addresses needed for that subnet over the next time period. In order to demonstrate the predicted growth of the network, you must provide an estimate of the address space you will require over three distinct periods: Immediate, Intermediate and the Entire period.

Your estimates should include interfaces used for hosts, routers, gateways, terminal concentrators and any other machines requiring one or more network interfaces. These columns can either contain numbers (for example, 64) or slash notation prefixes (for example, /26). Multiple slash notation prefixes must be separated by comma(s) with no blank spaces (for example, /24,/25,/26). In the "Purpose" column, write a short description of each subnet. In the "totals" row, add the totals of each column. The total of the "Subnet size (/nn)" column should be the total amount of address space you are requesting for this assignment. In the "number-of-subnets" field, enter the total number of subnets listed in the addressing plan.

IPv6 section

#[IPv6 section]#
%
% Why is PI address space required rather than PA address space? 

why-pi-v6: North Santa will be multihomed. We cannot use PA address space because our uplinks do not allow their address space to be announced by other Autonomous Systems.

% Is the End User requesting extra address space for routing and/or 
% administrative reasons? If yes, explain why.

Why-routing-v6:

% Please confirm if the End User is aware of the consequences and disadvantages 
% of PI address space. (Yes/No)
% For details, you can refer to section 8.0 “PA vs. PI Address Space” of the IPv4
% Address Allocation and Assignment Policies. confirmation-v6: Yes

In the "why-pi:" field, explain why PA address space cannot be used for this assignment. Remember that you should encourage the use of PA address space where possible. If the End User is requesting extra address space for routing and/or administrative reasons, then you need to explain how much address space is being requested due to this and explain the reasons behind it. You must ensure that the End User understands and accepts that PI address space may be more difficult or more expensive to route than PA address space and then confirm this in the "confirmation:" field. You can find more details on the consequences and disadvantages of PI address space in the document "IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy for the RIPE NCC Service Region" under section 8.0 “PA vs. PI Address Space”.

% ADDRESSING PLAN
% How will the End User use this IPv6 address space?
% 
%       Subnet       Immediate    Intermediate  Entire   Purpose
%       size (/nn)   Requirement  Requirement   Period
subnet: /60          /60          /60           /60      Servers for Banking applications
totals: /60          /60          /60           /60

The addressing plan shows how the End User will use the requested address space. You can repeat the "subnet" row as many times as needed. Delete any empty "subnet" fields before you send the request. Enter the size of each subnet in the "Subnet size (/nn)" column using IPv6 slash notation (for example, /60). In the "Purpose" column, write a short description of each subnet. In the "totals" row, add the totals of each column.

The smallest IPv6 PI assignment size issued by the RIPE NCC is /48.

ASN section

#[ASN section]#

%[ADDRESS SPACE TO BE ANNOUNCED]%
% If this ASN will originate other prefixes than are requested in this request,
% please list these below. prefix-asn:

If you are not requesting temporary address space for this End User in this ticket, please specify all address prefixes using slash notation (for example, x.x.x.x/xx ). The address space must be a valid assignment to the organisation that will use the AS number.

% If you require a 16-bit AS Number instead of a 32-bit AS Number 
% please indicate this below and tell us why. For more information,
% see http://www.ripe.net/news/asn-32-guide.html

as-number-type: 16-bit 
why-16-bit: Our routers are not 32-bit enabled

As of 1 January 2009, all AS Numbers assigned by the RIPE NCC will be 32-bit by default. If you require a 16-bit AS Number, change the default entry "32-bit" to "16-bit" and explain why you require a 16-bit AS Number. If you require further clarification, please see:
http://www.ripe.net/news/asn-32-guide.html % PEERING CONTACTS % Please list the Autonomous System Numbers and email contact addresses of the
% peering partners. peering-asn: AS64532, noddy@grottoinvestments.nn peering-asn: AS64518, mary@northernbanking.nn

You must list the email addresses and ASN of at least two peering partners in the "peering:" fields. You can repeat the "peering:" field as many times as needed.

Supporting Documentation

#[SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION]#
% Please add more information if you think it will help us understand this request.
% You can attach a network diagram or other relevant supporting documentation. % <add more information> There are already 350 participants that have registered for the conference and address space is needed for their laptops and other devices (ipads, smart phones etc). We also need addresses for network devices like switches, firewalls, routers, 10 servers (2 IPs each). There will also be an Internet cafe with 25 workstations in the exhibition area for exhibition attendees only. As IPv6 is the future of the Internet, we would like to use it for few servers where we will host certain banking/financial applications.

If you would like to include additional information on the technical requirements, deployment plan, detailed usage or total users/equipment count, you can use this section.
A network diagram (topology map) can help us to understand the set-up of the network and its addressing needs. For information on “Submission of topology maps”, refer to: http://www.ripe.net/lir-services/resource-management/submission-of-topology-maps
