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 obsoleted 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 the RIPE NCC reaching the last /8 class B scarcity, a reasonable number insert: <br />
of IPv4 address space. delete: </a> delete: </p> delete: <p> delete: <img src="./resolveuid/1f075ef0-1420-4b37-95a9-b77d6721138b" alt="" class="image-inline" title="" data-val="1f075ef0-1420-4b37-95a9-b77d6721138b" data-linktype="image" /> delete: </p> delete: <pre> % Provider Independent (PI) Assignment Request Form delete: <br /> delete: <br /> % RIPE NCC members (LIRs) and Direct Assignment Users class C numbers will be assigned over class B. If you can engineer insert: <br />

Please note that the End User should have a signed "End User delete: <br /> % Assignment Agreement" 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 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 either the sponsoring LIR or 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 and return to the insert: <br />
appropriate organisation responsible for issuing IP network numbers. In insert: <br />
most cases this will be your IP service provider. It may of course also insert: <br />
be the RIPE NCC.
