Question for written answer E-001101-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
John Stuart Agnew (EFDD)

 Subject:  Carrier-Grade Network Address Translation (CGN)
 Answer in writing 

Europol recently held a meeting to discuss CGN technologies that have long been used by ISPs to delay the capex required to extend the current pool of IP addresses (CGN technologies are used by ISPs to share one single IP address among multiple subscribers at the same time).

Does the Commission agree that restricting the continued use of CGN, simply on the grounds that Europol finds it inconvenient to monitor, is a retrograde step and an unacceptable interference with current commercial practice and freedom of technological choice?
