Consumer Broadband Monitoring Feasibility
2005-10 Test Traffic Working Group May 2006

Summary: This is a proposal to have the RIPE NCC, as a neutral body, develop a way of measuring performance for consumer broadband networks. The proposal requests funding for a limited deployment prototype with the purpose of assessing industry and consumer acceptance, functional requirements and technical issues.

Reason for Withdrawal: During the discussion phase, the working group decided that the RIPE NCC should do the work and that there was no need to complete the full PDP cycle for this proposal.

IPv6 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy - definition for "End-Site"
2005-04 Address Policy Working Group January 2006

Summary: There are various terms for "end-site" in the IPv6 allocation and assignment policy (ripe-267) and the RFC3177. We need to have a final definition for "End-Site" to establish clear internal assignment policies.

Proposal to Add Regional Boundaries to Policy Documents
2005-06 Address Policy Working Group July 2005

Summary: Our AS assignment policy has the following statement in it - "The RIPE NCC assigns AS Numbers for Autonomous Systems located in the RIPE NCC service region". Neither the IPv4 nor the IPv6 policy documents have such a clear statement in them. It might be a good idea to add a similar statement to those documents when they are updated.

Reason for Withdrawal: The proposer decided to withdraw this proposal.
