The RIPE Network Coordination Centre now handles all requests for IP insert: <br />
network numbers from European organisations. Our aim is to provide a insert: <br />
rapid and efficient service to all European organisations. As this is insert: <br />
a recent initiative, procedures for handling network number requests are insert: <br />
in the process of being established. Therefore we apologise in advance insert: <br />
for any duplication of effort that may be required by you due to new insert: <br />
forms and templates. As the European NIC, we require different insert: <br />
information to that required by the US and for it to be presented in a insert: <br />
format which is both easy for you to complete and for us to process. insert: <br />
Before your application can be processed any further, you will need to insert: <br />
complete the enclosed templates and return them to the appropriate insert: <br />
organisation responsible for issuing IP network numbers. In most cases insert: <br />
this will be your IP service provider or the RIPE NCC. Before insert: <br />
completion of the template, please be sure to read the following text insert: <br />
and examples carefully which will guide you. insert: <br />
insert: <br />
A new classless IP addressing scheme called CIDR has recently been insert: <br />
adopted to cope with routing table growth and address space exhaustion insert: <br />
problems in the Internet. Under this scheme it is beneficial for insert: <br />
everyone to get their network numbers allocated via their respective insert: <br />
IP service providers. Your IP service provider is the organisation insert: <br />
providing external connectivity to your network. If you are planning insert: <br />
to connect your network to other networks outside your organisation in insert: <br />
the foreseeable future we strongly urge you to get numbers allocated insert: <br />
from your current or prospective IP service provider. Alternatively, if insert: <br />
this is not likely, then you will be allocated a number from a different insert: <br />
part of the address space by the RIPE NCC. Please pay careful attention insert: <br />
to this matter. insert: <br />
insert: <br />
Class A and B network numbers are a scarce resource and some insert: <br />
justification in terms of expected network size and structure will be insert: <br />
needed before such a number can be allocated. Class A numbers will only insert: <br />
be assigned to networks which technically need more than 65000 hosts to insert: <br />
be on one network number. A detailed technical justification is needed, insert: <br />
review takes place on a global scale and the allocation process can take insert: <br />
several months. Similarly due to class B scarcity, a reasonable number insert: <br />
of class C numbers will be assigned over class B. If you can engineer insert: <br />
your network to use multiple class C numbers, it is strongly advised. insert: <br />
Please note that this is contrary to earlier recommendations where it insert: <br />
was recommended to use Bs over multiple Cs due to routing table size insert: <br />
constraints. A one page document contains instructions for LIRs on how to detailing the information needed by insert: <br />
the NCC to evaluate requests for class B numbers is available from the insert: <br />
NCC if it is not enclosed with this letter; this document also includes insert: <br />
a list of recommended reading about CIDR and address allocation in insert: <br />
general. insert: <br />
insert: <br />
Appended to this letter is a blank template for IP number registration, insert: <br />
which we would be extremely grateful if you complete the “ delete: <a data-val="ad8cc394acf725d0acbdeb5d20356d9c" href="resolveuid/ad8cc394acf725d0acbdeb5d20356d9c" data-linktype="internal" class="internal-link"> Provider Aggregatable (PA) Assignment Request Form delete: </a> ”. delete: </p> delete: <p> The instructions are based on the “IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy for and return to the insert: <br />

delete: <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 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). delete: </p> delete: <p> Starting on 1 January 2010, a gradual reduction in the assignment period will be applied.
