Presented at: LACNIC 26 Presentations:

Summary

This policy proposal seeks to eliminate all references to an organization's “multihomed” or “non-multihomed” status, as well as the requirement stating “at least 50% of the requested address space” and standardizing the requirement as "25% of the requested space".

Rationale

The rationale for the proposal is described below.

1. Current technology has drastically reduced traffic failures.

2. Traffic redundancy is not necessarily local, as remote physical redundancy has a similar effect when the traffic provider is brought into the picture.

3. In remote areas there are physical and / or economic impediments that mean that redundancy is not feasible. The lack of economic viability affects the communities involved and prevents their use of the Internet, thus hurting the universal desire for universal access to the World Wide Web.

Text

The following changes should made to the Policy Manual:

a. Replace the following text from section 2.3.3.1.2:

“In addition, depending of the multihomed or non-multihomed status of the applying ISP, the following requirements shall be considered:
If the applicant is a multihomed ISP, is planning to become one, or has interconnection needs:

Efficient utilization of at least 25% of the requested address space (contiguous or not). If the applicant is multihomed, specify the names and autonomous system numbers of its providers. If the applicant is planning to become multihomed or needs to interconnect with other autonomous systems, describe in detail the corresponding plan and timeline (presenting signed contracts or letters of intent is recommended).

If the applicant is a non-multihomed ISP:

Efficient utilization of at least 50% of the requested address space (contiguous or not).”

to:

“In addition, the following requirements shall be considered to the the applying ISP:

Efficient utilization of at least 25% of the requested address space (contiguous or not).

Specify the names and numbers of the autonomous system of its providers.

If the applicant needs to interconnect with other autonomous systems, describe in detail the corresponding plan and timeline (presenting signed contracts or letters of intent is recommended).
