IPv6 RIPEness - The List of 4-star LIRs
After we initially started publishing IPv6 RIPEness information (as described in IPv6 RIPEness Update and Methodology), we mentioned we would like to publish the list of '4-star LIRs'. After consulting with many of these LIRs we are now making the list of LIRs with 4-star IPv6 RIPEness publicly available:
This page is modeled after membership lists that were already published on http://www.ripe.net before.
To obtain this 4-star status an LIR has to:
- Get IPv6 address space from the RIPE NCC
- Have the address space visible in global routing
- Register a 'route6' object for this address space in the RIPE Database
- Have reverse DNS for this address space set up
For more information on the IPv6 RIPEness study, please see a list of all previously published articles and statistics related to that topic: http://labs.ripe.net/topics/ipv6ripeness
We hope that publishing this list, will provide an extra incentive for LIRs that have not taken steps to deploy IPv6 in their networks.
