Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that we have fully implemented the RIPE 
Policy Proposal 2019-05 "Revised IPv4 assignment policy for IXPs”.

This policy increased the reserved IPv4 pool for IXPs to a /15 and 
finetuned assignment criteria.

The default IPv4 assignment size for IXP remains a /24 however on 
request or once there are no more assignments of /24 (or larger) 
available, assignments can be made down to /27.

The pool management part of this proposal was already implemented in 
October 2019.

The archived policy proposal can be found at:

The RIPE Document, "IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment Policies for 
the RIPE NCC Service Region" is available at:

Kind regards,
