IANA Issues /13 to ARIN

On 2 March 2015 ARIN received a /13 of IPv4 address space from IANA in
accordance with the Global Policy for Post Exhaustion IPv4 Allocation
Mechanisms by the IANA. This policy was immediately activated when the
LACNIC IPv4 free pool dropped below one /9 of IPv4 address space. The
full text of the policy is available at:
https://www.icann.org/en/resources/policy/global-addressing/allocation-ipv4-post-exhaustion

As a result of this allocation, the ARIN IPv4 free pool will be slightly
increased this week. This change does not impact the IPv4 Countdown
Plan, and we will continue to follow Phase 4 processing procedures.

We encourage you to visit the IPv4 Countdown Phase Four page at:
https://www.arin.net/resources/request/countdown_phase4.html

ARIN will add this new /13 (45.72.0.0 - 45.79.255.255) to its available
inventory this week and will begin issuing from this block in the near
future.

For informational purposes, a list of ARIN's currently administered IP
address blocks can be found at:
https://www.arin.net/knowledge/ip_blocks.html

Please contact hostmaster@... or our Help Desk +1.703.227.0660 if
you have any questions.

Remote Participation at ARIN 35

ARIN 35 will be in San Francisco on 12-15 April. Will you? We sure hope
so, but if you are unable to make it in person, participating online can
be equally rewarding. In an effort to create a truly open community
forum, ARIN provides meeting materials, live transcripts and webcasts to
help you feel like part of the action, and remote attendee chat and
voting options to make sure your voice gets heard, even if it's from
your living room.

The webcast and live transcript are available to anyone, but if you want
to join in the meeting chat room and add your voice to discussion and
participate in straw polls, you must register at
https://www.arin.net/ARIN35.

Select "Register" and chose "remote participant" as your registration
type.  You will need a Jabber client to participate in chat, and we will
ask for your Jabber Identifier (JID) when you register. For details, visit:

https://www.arin.net/ARIN35_remote

We will notify all remote participants when the meeting materials,
including the discussion guide, are available online. We'll even mail
you an official ARIN 35 shirt just for participating!

Note that all remote participants are subject to the Remote
Participation Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) found at:

https://www.arin.net/participate/meetings/remote_aup.html

Whether you attend in person or remotely, we look forward to your
participation at ARIN 35. Please contact us at info@... if you have

The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) will be holding meetings in San Francisco (ARIN 35) and Montreal (ARIN 36) next April and October, respectively. These meetings are crucial to the Internet technical community because the policies being developed determine how Internet number resources are administered, and those decisions have a direct impact on the future of the Internet as a whole. With big decisions to be made, many of the biggest players in the Internet community make a point of getting involved (Fortune 100 enterprises, gigantic ISPs and hosting providers, prestigious universities…), and we want them to have the chance to see that you are committed to supporting the future growth and stability of the Internet, too.

ARIN’s Policy Development Process relies on people from the United States, Canada and Caribbean packing up and shipping off to the ARIN meeting to speak up and say, “Hey, I think THIS is how IP addresses should be allocated!” Because you can’t create the same dynamic dialog over email, it is so important to hold face-to-face discussions to provide ideas room to grow. ARIN meetings fuel the policy process – draft policy debates spark new ideas that are carried from the meeting room where supporters gather to flesh out new proposals, and you can help make it all happen. ARIN meeting sponsorships require minimal investment and put you on the radar of some of the most influential organizations in the industry.

If you need a convincing argument to get your organization on board, don’t neglect to mention how flexible ARIN sponsorship opportunities are. You can sponsor anything from a snack or meal break to a happy hour or other social event. Can’t afford to fly solo on sponsoring one of these options? Feel free to tackle a sponsorship alongside another organization, gaining invaluable visibility at an even smaller cost! We can even play matchmaker for you to find a suitable co-sponsor, if you don’t have one in mind.

ARIN 35 in San Francisco will be held 12-15 April 2015, and ARIN 36 in Montreal will be held 8-9 October, in conjunction with NANOG 65. This gives you plenty of time to negotiate making ARIN meeting sponsorship part of your 2015 marketing budget. For the full rundown, check out our sponsorship brochure at:

https://www.arin.net/participate/meetings/sponsor.pdf
