TPIA static ips approved

God knows when you will see them but..

In this decision, the Commission approves the recommendation made by the CRTC Interconnection Steering Committee’s Network Working Group to adopt two solutions for static Internet protocol address allocation for third-party Internet access services.

If the CRTC approves all those money grabbing requests from cablecos, we won't need them anymore since no TPIA will exist anymore.

There's no real good solution here. The two decisions are basically VPNs (which ISPs have always been able to use, and some TPIA ISPs already use to provide static IPs), which give greater flexibility but have overhead and requires custom CPE, and managed router, a more technically correct solution (no overhead), but still requires custom CPE, and is incompatible with IPv6...

No ISP currently support IPv6 natively, so this is not a real problem for now.

CRTC say both L2TP and Managed router are allowed for TPIA, which is a good start since, at least on Videotron network the Managed Router solution was only available to it's business customers. I guess it will now also be possible to get that for TPIA Access.

Currently Ebox support Static IP (beta) via PPTP with the limitation of only a single Static IP.

They are recommendations not something that the Cableco are require to implement. So this is a white paper research not a tariff.

Nothing "great" about it, the CISC's two proposed implementations require custom CPE to implement one variant or another of IP-over-IP which ISPs have been able to do all along, so ISPs win absolutely nothing there.

Basically, the CRTC's decision confirms that there is no economically practical way to force cablecos to provide static IPs so any ISP wanting to do static over cable will have to implement their own work-around... ISPs never needed the CRTC's authorization to do that, the decision simply tells them this is they only way they are going to get it.

Also, there are ISPs already providing native IPv6, such as TekSavvy.
