CP075 - ETNO Common Position on ITU-TSB proposal for the future administration of IPv6 addresses
ETNO believes that the current rules and organisation for IPv4 and IPv6 address management by the private sector is to be maintained, above all to guarantee the most appropriate technical operation and economic savings.
A situation where the IPv6 address space would be managed, even partially, through national authorities would lead to great confusion and would be the source of technical difficulties regarding routing. ETNO believes that the current system based on RIRs, as part of the ICANN and in accordance with ICANN principles of transparency, bottom-up approach and geographic representation, must be maintained.
