AFRINIC Member Services Publications


Dear Colleagues,

We, at AFRINIC, know that having sufficient IP resources is vital for business continuity and efficient service delivery. In our continuous effort to accompany our members through all of their initiatives, our Member Services Team has drafted 3 guidebooks to help you with IP planning and resources requests.

Guidebook 1: Guidelines for AFRINIC LIR Members

This guidebook has been drafted to provide information on the current policies that govern Internet Number Resources distribution, information on the various criteria for policy compliance and the procedures to follow to implement the same. The guidelines aims at helping LIR members to prepare requests for additional resources, while making sure that current allocations are policy-compliant.

Guidebook 2: IPv4 address Planning

This guidebook will allow members to understand the benefits of IP planning and acts as a starting point to forecast IP needs, manage future request and ease the process of network expansion and modification.

Guidebook 3: Internet Routing Registry

This document is intended to help AFRINIC members to register their routing objects in the RIPE database. The RIPE IRR is a free service. Divided into 4 sections (Introduction, Mandatory objects, Basic objects, Advanced objects), the document gives step-by-step instructions on Routing Registry registration.
