From ARIN
Potential Misuse of ARIN unmet requests list

At their business meeting in January 2019, the ARIN Board of Trustees,
in light of the potential misuse of number resources under NRPM section
4.1.8 (Unmet Requests), suspended issuance of number resources per NRPM
section 4.1.8.2. (Fulfilling unmet needs), and referred NRPM section
4.1.8 to the ARIN Advisory Council for their recommendation. ARIN will
complete open transactions to waiting list organizations where IPv4
addresses have already been approved pending fee payment.

Baicells: Public IPs on client routers

Public IPs on Baicells Client Routers.

I needed to Provide a few customers with Public IPs while most of the UEs and clients got private IP. The following is what I did to allow this to work:

Requirements:
EnodeB in Bridge mode
UE in NAT mode
MikroTik Router with DHCP handing out Private IP space to Baicells UEs.

Steps:

On MikroTik
Add new Public IP subnet to the same Bridge or interface as current DHCP server.
Edit current DHCP IP Pool and add a second list of IPs that are your Publics. Not a second pool. In DHCP Server window in the Networks tab add a new Network for the New Subnet
That is the MikroTik setup.

Connect the UE to the tower and find the device in the MikroTik DHCP Leases.
Make the UE leased IP Static. Then edit it.
Change the Lease address to one of the unused Public IP address in your pool. Apply.

In the UE: (only tried so far in Gen2)

Network > Lan settings > DHCP settings
Change Start IP and End IP address to the same (192.168.150.100) Save and Apply

Network > DMZ

Turn On DMZ
Set DMZ host to IP (192.168.150.100) Save and Apply

System > Web Settings

Make sure Redirect HTTPS is off. Save and Apply

Reboot UE.

When the UE is rebooted have customer reboot router.
From WAN side:
HTTPS://StaticIP Should bring up UE login
HTTP://StaticIP should go to the Customer Router Login or Port redirection.
