Creating a request for additional IP addresses

To create a request for additional IP addresses:

  1. Click Service Mgmt, then Ticketing.

    Control Center lists all tickets—repair, potential repair, activation, configuration, maintenance inquiry, and reason for outage (RFO)—including tickets Lumen created on your behalf. By default, tickets are organized by the date the ticket was created (starting with the newest). The Status column shows the status for each ticket: Active, Canceled, Closed, etc. Potential tickets are marked with a yellow flag
    (
    ). Tickets needing a reply from you are marked with a green flag ().

    • If you know the product or service ID, type it into the Product/Service ID field, then press enter on your computer keyboard.

    • From the Service Type list, select the service you're submitting the request for.

    1. Type your current (and short-term planned) IP addresses and their use. (If you need additional space, you can attach a list on the Attachments tab before submitting your request.)

    2. Type the contact information for the Shared WhoIs Project (SWIP). 

    3. Add any notes or details in the comments box.
  1. In the Contacts section, either leave yourself as the primary contact or select a different contact from the Primary Contact list or manually fill in the contact information for that person.

  1. If you need to attach any documents (such as a more detailed explanation of the problem or additional details pertaining to your request), you can upload up to two documents (up to 2 MB each). To attach a document, click Add Attachment, browse to locate the file, and click Open.
