9. Temporary Resource Allocation & Assignment
In some circumstances, organisations may require IP resources for a certain period of time, usually one month and less. This could be for exhibitions, conferences, conventions, etc.
AFRINIC will therefore assign numbering resources to entities requiring temporary IP numbers for a fixed period of time. In this document, "IP resources" refers to unicast IPv4/v6 addresses and AS numbers.
9.1 Documenting the temporary activity
The activity requiring temporary IP resources should be publicly documented and available, preferably on a website. Entities requiring such IP resources are expected to demonstrate an understanding that when the activity or experiment for which they require the IP resources ends, the IP resources will be returned to AFRINIC.
A "publicly accessible document" is a document that is publicly and openly available free of charge and free of any constraints of disclosure.
AFRINIC will not recognize any activity under this policy if such an activity cannot be publicly disclosed.
9.2 Assignments of IP resources
Resources are assigned on a lease basis for a period of one month. The assignment can be renewed on application to AFRINIC providing the necessary information. The size of the assigned IP resource will be determined from the plan submitted by the requesting entity.
9.2.1 Required Documentation:
a. Details of Organisation: Legal Organisation name , Country Where Registered , Postal Address , Physical Address, Telephone and Fax Numbers, website (this is a must).
b. Details of activity requiring the temporary assignment: Website detailing the activity or Website with a link to similar previous activities, Links from other (relevant) sites about this activity, and the date when the above activity ends.
c. The planned use of these IP resources: List subnet size required, and for what it will be used plus any AS numbers and reverse delegation, if required.
d. The intended date of return of the IP resources above.
9.3 Administrative fees
AFRINIC may charge administrative fees (if necessary) for assignment of the temporary IP numbers above.
