New IPv6 block allocated to RIPE NCC

[Apologies for duplicate mails]

Dear Colleagues,

The RIPE NCC received the IPv6 address range 2a00::/12 from the IANA in October 2006. This allocation expands two previous allocations. We will begin allocating from this new space in the near future.

The minimum allocation size for this /12 has been set at /32. You may wish to adjust any filters you have in place accordingly.

More information on the IP space administered by the RIPE NCC can be found on our web site at:
