The objective of this proposal is to acknowledge that the IPv4 address blocks 220.127.116.11/24 and 18.104.22.168/24 are not suitable for global unicast use and to define a long term approach to their management as research prefixes for use by APNIC Research & Development.
The policy proposal is prop-109: Allocate 22.214.171.124/24 and 126.96.36.199/24 to APNIC Labs as Research Prefixes.
The proposal reached consensus at APNIC 37 Petaling Jaya, Malaysia in February 2014 and was endorsed by the APNIC Executive Council via electronic vote.
The policy change did not require any edits to policy documents and the required action delegating the blocks was performed by the APNIC Secretariat.
