ripe-083: European Internet Network Number Application Form ripe-489: This document contains instructions for LIRs on how to complete the “Provider Aggregatable (PA) Assignment Request Form”.

This document contains instructions for LIRs on how to complete the “ insert: <a data-val="ad8cc394acf725d0acbdeb5d20356d9c" href="resolveuid/ad8cc394acf725d0acbdeb5d20356d9c" data-linktype="internal" class="internal-link"> Provider Aggregatable (PA) Assignment Request Form insert: </a> ”. insert: </p>

insert: <p>

The instructions are based on the “IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy for the RIPE Document region”. insert: </p>

insert: <p>

LIRs should send separate “Provider Aggregatable (PA) Assignment Request” forms for each End User. insert: </p>

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. 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. insert: </p>

insert: <p>

In order to demonstrate the predicted growth of your network, you must provide an estimate of the address space you will require over three distinct periods: Immediate, Intermediate and PDF delete: </p> 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, 128) or slash notation prefixes (for example, /25). Multiple slash notation prefixes must be separated by comma(s) with no blank spaces (for example, /25,/27). insert: </p>

insert: <p>

Starting on 1 January 2010, a gradual reduction in the assignment period will be applied. As the assignment period changes, so too will the information required: insert: </p>

insert: <p>

Up to 30 June 2010, assignments are for a period of up to insert: <b> twelve insert: </b> months. Therefore, your request should reflect your immediate requirements, predicted requirements for the coming six months, and predicted requirements for the coming twelve months. insert: </p>

insert: <p>

As of 1 July 2010, assignments are for a period of up to insert: <b> nine insert: </b> months. Your request should reflect your immediate requirements, predicted requirements for the coming six months, and predicted requirements for the coming nine months. insert: </p>

insert: <p>

As of 1 January 2011, assignments are for period of up to insert: <b> six insert: </b> months. Your request should reflect your immediate requirements, predicted requirements for the coming three months, and predicted requirements for the coming six months. insert: </p>

insert: <p>

As of 1 July 2011, assignments are for a period of up to insert: <b> three insert: </b> months. Your request should reflect your immediate requirements, predicted requirements for the coming two months, and predicted requirements for the coming three months. insert: </p>

insert: <p>

In the “Purpose” column, write a short description of each subnet. If needed, you can write a more detailed description in the “Network Description” section at the end of this form. insert: </p>

insert: <p>

In the “ insert: <span class="pre"> totals insert: </span> ” row, add the total of each column. The total of the “ insert: <span class="pre"> Subnet size (/nn) insert: </span> ” column should be the total amount of address space you are requesting for this assignment. insert: </p>

insert: <p>

In the “ insert: <span class="pre"> number-of-subnets: insert: </span> ” field, enter the total number of subnets listed in the addressing plan. insert: </p>

insert: <p>

The “ insert: <span class="pre"> netname: insert: </span> ” should be a short, descriptive name for the network and should reflect the End User's organisation name. You should use the same “ insert: <span class="pre"> netname: insert: </span> ” when you register this assignment in the RIPE Whois Database. insert: </p>

insert: <p>

If there is any address space assigned to the End User that they will return, list each prefix in separate “ insert: <span class="pre"> address-space-returned: insert: </span> ” fields. The expected time for renumbering is three months. You can use the following syntax: <x.x.x.x/xx> to <which LIR/ISP> in <time period> for this field. insert: </p>
