    • Hi all, I'm David Chen. I would like to confirm that if IPv6 HD ratio is amended from 0.8 to 0.94, will the utilisation be changed to a higher number under HD 0.94 in the fee schedule? As I know in the APNIC fee schedule, IPv6 per-address fee is calculated according to current HD ratio requirement. http://www.apnic.net/docs/corpdocs/member-fee-schedule.html. Following this rule, it would be a big influence on per-address fee.
      For example,
      The utilisation number of /48s for /32 under HD ratio 0.8 is 7,132. The total per-address fee payable for an allocation of /32 to a "Very Large" member is calculated as : 7,132 * 0.03 = $213.96
      If under HD ratio 0.94, then the utilisation number of /48s for /32 is around 33,690. The total per-address fee payable for an allocation of /32 to a "Very Large" member is calculated as : 33,690 * 0.03 = $1,010.7
      Am I right? Please clarify this for me, thanks.

      Dear colleagues

      Final call for comments: [prop-031-v002]
      "Proposal to amend APNIC IPv6 assignment and utilisation requirement policy"
      This is the final call for comments on policy proposal [prop-031-v002]
      "Proposal to amend APNIC IPv6 assignment and utilisation requirement policy".
      Version one of this proposal was discussed at APNIC 20. The proposal to
      amend the IPv6 HD ratio from 0.8 to 0.94 reached consensus and is now
      documented in [prop-031-v002]. Other parts of proposal [prop-031-v001]
      did not reach consensus.
      Regarding the amendment of the IPv6 HD ratio, the following consensus was
         "The SIG accepted by consensus the proposed policy process,
          which requires the text proposal to be sent to the mailing
          list one month before the meeting, an eight week comment
          period on the mailing list after the meeting, and final
          endorsement from EC."
      This proposal is now submitted to the sig-policy mailing list for an
      eight week discussion period. At the end of that period, if consensus
      appears to have been achieved, the Chair of the Policy SIG will
      ask the Executive Council to endorse the proposal for implementation.
      *   Send all comments and questions to:   <sig-policy at apnic dot net>
      *   Deadline for comments:                  16 November 2005
      Proposal details
      Authors:    Stephan Millet  <stephan (a) telstra.net>
                  Geoff Huston    <gih (a) apnic.net>
      Version:    2.0
      Date:       19 September 2005
      To amend the APNIC IPv6 address allocation policies regarding the
      definition of the threshold value for end-site allocation efficiency.
      These measures, if undertaken generally by all RIRs, and assuming that
      further measures are undertaken by the addressing community regarding
      the general adoption of an end-site allocation size that would be
      substantially smaller than the existing default value of a /48, would
      increase the anticipated useful lifetime of IPv6 to encompass a period
      in excess of 100 years, in which case no further allocation policy
      changes would be anticipated.
      To amend the IPv6 threshold end site allocation utilisation level to
      that matching an HD Ratio value of 0.94.
      Impact summary
        End users:
          There is no impact arising from this policy proposal.
        ISPs and LIRs:
          With the higher threshold end-site allocation efficiency level,
          when based on a 0.94 HD Ratio, ISPs will need to undertake network
          address plans according to this target level.
      These proposed policy changes are not anticipated to have any impact on
          NIR operation, other than implementation of a 0.94 density metric
          to replace the existing 0.80 value, as per APNIC policy.
          APNIC will need to amend its IPv6 criteria to reflect the altered
          HD ratio.
