Service Overview

The Managed LIR services gives you all the benefits of your membership, without having the worry about the administrative or technical side of being a RIPE LIR member.

Becoming a RIPE LIR and why would you become a RIPE Local Internet Registrar (LIR) at a first place ?

  • If your organization needs IPv6 address space or AS Numbers, and need to make assignments to End Users or customers.
  • A LIR is also able to receive a one-time allocation of a /22 of IPv4 address space from the last /8 of IPv4 address space.

But being a LIR comes with responsibilities as well. You have to maintain your records in the RIPE database as well. As a new LIR that means a lot of paperwork, reading through the RIPE policies and understanding the whole process. The RIPE NCC helps you to make that easier by offering free training to your staff as part of your membership. This does mean that you have to send staff in for training.

Why choosing for Managed LIR services

From our customer base we noticed that there are several situations when that becomes not so easy to send staff out or put resources to this task:

  • The learning curve to familiar yourself with the RIPE policies and procedures.
  • If you are a small organization, sending staff to training could have quite an impact on the       day to day activity.
  • Training just one or two guys can be a risc in your operation, there is a chance that this guy       will leave your organization, resulting in issues in continuity.




All points are really worth considering. This is why we launched our Managed LIR service. This service means that you become a LIR and you don’t have the administrative handling of being a LIR. This is what we do for you when you subscribe to this service:
