Re: Open Question About AS Number assignments...
> 1) Is there a easy mechnisim to give back AS numbers to the ARIN? Extremely easy, yes. One quick template. > 2) Would ARIN even reallocate those AS numbers to new requesters? Depends on the circumstances. I believe ARIN would need the returning organization's permission to re-allocate the returned ASes prior to one year or so. > 3) Could those AS numbers be transfered over to new organizations? ARIN doesn't allow others to act as registrars. Unless there is a merger or acquisition type activity, neither address space nor ASes may be transferred. > 4) Is there a advantage for a organzation to have multiple AS numbers? I'll let the big boys speak to that. > 5) Is there a advantage to having a lower AS number? Some network operators measure the size of their, um, "networks", by the lowness of their primary AS (Scott Marcus-envy). :> /david (just some schmo who barely even represents himself, much less others)
