We always take the time to review these suggestions, and sometimes implement your ideas! We recently received two separate suggestions from different ARIN community members asking us to add two new types of optional Points of Contact (POCs) to…"New POCs on the Block"
SolarNetOne IPv6 Case Study I am continually impressed by the adaptability of the Internet’s underlying structure. It can bring so many disparate groups with different interests and goals to work together toward the common aim of making our systems interoperate correctly. The network’s response to the challenges of IPv4 depletion by producing IPv6 is a great example of that process. As the founder of SolarNetOne, we have made every service on every host on every…"Testament to the Adaptability of the Internet"
You may have heard during our past few Public Policy and Members Meetings that we’ve been working on moving towards a “stateless architecture.” If you’re in the dark about what this means for ARIN Online as well as future downtime and upgrades, read on for a quick Q&A with Andy Newton, our Chief Engineer. 1. Can you explain what stateless architecture means in terms of ARIN’s systems? This refers to ARIN Online and how it…"What Is Stateless Architecture and What Does It Mean for ARIN?"
Guest Blog I’ve written several blogs about how IPv6 is faster, and how that results in higher Google search rankings, and that’s good for sales. My presentation at NANOG76 went into it at some depth. The question everyone asks: Why is IPv6 faster? I don’t know. So let’s look at some measurements. This is from APNIC data, using the ten largest mobile carriers in the world, where I know what transition mechanism they’re using. There…"Why is IPv6 faster?"
Last week we had an ARIN Help Desk at NANOG 76 in Washington, D.C. I was happy to be there to help attendees with their registry needs and get a sense for the most-pressing concerns for network operators. NANOG is a great community, and we’re happy to be a part of it. We had quite a few people come to us with questions that were as varied as a typical week on the phones. People…"Questions Network Operators Ask – NANOG 76"
Telus IPv6 Case Study TELUS was the first service provider in Canada to deploy IPv6 at scale for the benefit of its customers. As one of the largest telecommunications companies in Canada, TELUS has 1.9 million home Internet subscribers and 9.2 million wireless subscribers. 83% of TELUS Home Internet customers have IPv6 and the other 17% only need a firmware upgrade on their customer premise equipment (CPE). Personally, I have about ten years of experience…"Practical Steps to Accelerate IPv6 Adoption"

You have been using a “Whois” tool for years to look up network-related information at ARIN. (The term “Whois” is a commonly-used term that can have multiple meanings, but we’ve been using it to mean a service ARIN provides for you to get data, such as name and contact information, about people who register a resource like an IP address, ASN, or domain.) There have been some recent changes at ARIN to our search services,…"ARIN’s RDAP and Whois Services: Getting the Information You Need"

San Joaquin Valley Library System IPv6 Case Study The San Joaquin Valley Library System (SJVLS) is a ten jurisdiction, joint powers agency in central California, and we are IPv6-ready. We have around 10% of the public libraries in the state all connected to a common network. The whole network is run by three network engineers, three librarians and a manager. We get our connectivity from CENIC, California’s state-wide education network. They provide us with redundant…"Library Framework Setup for IPv6"
