RIPE Community Statement on the Internet Address Management System

ipv6 itu news announcement

17 May 2010 - At the RIPE 60 Meeting on 7 May 2010 in Prague, Czech Republic, the RIPE community issued the following statement:

The RIPE community supports all efforts to assist in the deployment of IPv6, especially in developing countries.

However, we note concerns being expressed within the ITU by a few members, most recently in the ITU IPv6 Group, that the current address management system is inadequate.

The RIPE community mandates the RIPE NCC to work with the ITU IPv6 Group, individual ITU members, and the community to clearly identify these concerns and to find ways to address them within the current IP address management system.

This statement will be sent to the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) to reiterate the RIPE community's belief that the current address management system works. The RIPE NCC will continue to participate actively in the ITU IPv6 Group and report back to the RIPE community.
