A new feature will enable lessees to take away leased IPs onto their own network infrastructure and streamline the IP announcement process.
Heficed, a network infrastructure solutions provider, is rolling out a new feature called Take Away IPs (TAIP) to the Internet Protocol Exchange Organization (IPXO). It will not only allow customers to move leased IPs onto third party networks but also automate the process and save time.
Until now, IPs, leased via the IPXO (formerly known as IP Address Market), have only had the option to be assigned to Heficed’s servers. The company’s new feature will enable clients to host IPs onto external networks, providing more flexibility and autonomy to those users who either have their own infrastructure, another provider, or simply operate in a different location.
“Our goal has always been to provide a range of functions and make the process of setting up the leased IPs as simple as possible. With TAIP, clients will be able to perform subnet reassignment to their ASN in only 15 minutes, which, compared with the usual 1-2 days, is a significant improvement,” said Vincentas Grinius, CEO at Heficed.
The swiftness will come from having the digital Route Origin Authorization (ROA) certificate that confirms which Autonomous System (AS) is given permission to announce specific prefixes, along with the Letter of Authorization (LOA). “The automated procedure will become more low-touch, requiring less support to move IPs to an external network. The feature, with its implemented safeguards, will keep the risk of error low by minimizing the amount of back-and-forths between clients and ISPs,” said Mr. Grinius.
Heficed has recently announced the detachment of the IP Address Market from the currently available products to form a separate business entity—IPXO. The new feature TAIP will be an inherent part of it, with additional functions to be offered later. The company, whose ultimate objective is to make all procedures autonomous, is also working towards introducing a new Bring Your Own IPs (BYOIP) function, which will enable customers to use and monetize their own IPv4 resources within Heficed’s infrastructure.
Headquartered in London, Heficed provides full-range services for IP lease, monetization, and management services. Heficed serves around 60 multi-billion industries starting from hosting to automotive or healthcare.
