IPv6 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy - Definition for "End-Site"

a. Current:

2.9. End Site

An End Site is defined as an End User (subscriber) who has a business relationship with a service provider that involves that service provider assigning address space to the End User that service provider providing transit service for the End User to other sites that service provider carrying the End User's traffic that service provider advertising an aggregate prefix route that contains the End User's assignment.

b. New:

2.9 End Site

End-Site defines a customer´s network with an own link to the ISP. The customer could run various networks on different locations (e.g. multiple branches). As long as the networks are all independent and have no internal connection, each network is defined as a single end-site. If the networks have internal connection and only one common link to the ISP, these networks are summarised to one end-site.

2.9a

A customer is an End User (subscriber) who has a business relationship with a service provider that involves that service provider assigning address space to the End User that service provider providing transit service for the End User to other sites that service provider carrying the End User's traffic that service provider advertising an aggregate prefix route that contains the End User's assignment.
