The role of Network Manager is to provide the IPv6 assignments for IPv6 address space and Autonomous System (AS) numbers for air navigation service providers (ANSPs), to coordinate with the European Regional Internet Registry (RIPE) and to maintain the IP allocation database. The role of ANSPs is to manage national IPv6 assignments address space and Autonomous System (AS) numbers.
The migration of existing ATM Network Communications services (FMTP, AMHS, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)) over the Internet Protocol (IP) requires a coordinated allocation of IPv6 address space and Autonomous System (AS) numbers.
European ATM Network infrastructure relies on IP global and regional governance activities. These activities aim to protect the way the Internet community functions and to support governments and provide them with all the information they need to make informed decisions about the Internet. EUROCONTROL has a central role to play for European ATM Network infrastructure migration from legacy systems towards IP, being the Local Internet Registry (LIR) for the IPv6 assignments for its Member States.
The EUROCONTROL Local Internet Registry functions in accordance with the “Réseaux IP Européens (European IP network authority)” (RIPE) policy for the allocations and coordination of IPv6 resources to EUROCONTROL stakeholders within ECAC (FABs, Communication Service Providers (CSP) and the EUROCONTROL/Network Manager).
The service is restricted to specific stakeholder groups.
