There are five proposals related to IPv6, ASN, IPv4 and the Policy Development Process to be discussed at the APNIC 47 Open Policy Meeting.
With 2-byte ASN exhaustion rapidly approaching, Geoff Huston helped develop a policy and plan that successfully transitioned the Internet to 4-byte ASNs.
Rajesh Chharia’s 2008 policy proposal to lower the minimum IPv4 allocation to a /22 helped startup ISPs across the region begin their Internet journey.
Akinori Maemura was one of a group of policy trailblazers from the APNIC region that helped create the first global IPv6 policy.
Philip Smith, Jonny Martin and Randy Bush’s policy to ration the final /8 of IPv4 addresses in the Asia Pacific provided a vital soft landing in the transition to IPv6.
Izumi Okutani tells the story behind the global policy that would change how the remaining IPv4 addresses were distributed by IANA to the RIRs.
APNIC’s Sunny Chendi participated at IRINN’s fifth Open Policy Meeting in Delhi, India, on 25 May 2018.
Managing the remaining IPv4 /8 and IPv4 transfers are among the proposals to be discussed at the upcoming APNIC 45 Open Policy Meeting.
The APNIC policy community was not the only RIR community to consider proposals relating to IPv4 transfers in 2017.
LEAs are important members of the APNIC community working towards a safer and more secure Internet.
