Effective coordination of IPv6 assignments to ensure the ATM Communication services migration over the Internet Protocol
European ATM Network infrastructure relies on Internet Protocol global and regional governance activities. These activities goals are to protect the way the Internet community functions, but at the same time 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 the Internet Protocol, being the Local Internet Registry (LIR) for the IPv6 assignments for its Member States.
The migration of existing ATM Network Communications services (FMTP, AMHS, Voice over IP) over the Internet Protocol requires a coordinated allocation of IPv6 address space and Autonomous System (AS) Numbers.
The role of Directorate Network Manager is to provide the IPv6 Assignements for IPv6 address space and Autonomous System (AS) Numbers for ANSPs, to coordinates with the European Regional Internet Registry ( RIPE) and to maintain the IP allocation database. The Réseaux IP Européens Network Coordination Centre (RIPE NCC) is an independent, not-for-profit membership organisation that supports the infrastructure of the Internet through technical coordination in its service region. The role of ANSPs is to manage national IPv6 assignments for IPv6 address space and Autonomous System (AS) Numbers.
