It’s official: Asia’s just run out of IPv4 Addresses

Quote:
Well, that was fast. The Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) has just released the last block of Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) addresses in its available pool. We knew this was coming when the Internet Corporation For Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) announced in February that the last of the world’s remaining IPv4 blocks had been assigned to the Regional Internet Registries (RIR). What we didn’t know was that APNIC would run out quickly. I, and most other people, thought that its supply of IPv4 addresses would last until at least early summer. We were wrong.

In a statement, APNIC announced that, “This event is a key turning point in IPv4 exhaustion for the Asia Pacific, as the remaining IPv4 space will be ‘rationed’ to network operators to be used as essential connectivity with next-generation IPv6 addresses (PDF Link). All new and existing APNIC Members who meet the current allocation criteria will be entitled to a maximum delegation of a /22 (1,024 addresses) of IPv4 space. ”

So what happened? APNIC Director General Paul Wilson explained the Asia Pacific region is the first to reach the point of being unable to meet IPv4 demand. This is due to the unprecedented fixed and mobile network growth the region is experiencing. “Considering the ongoing demand for IP addresses, this date effectively represents IPv4 exhaustion for many of the current operators in the Asia Pacific region,” Wilson said. “From this day onwards, IPv6 is mandatory for building new Internet networks and services.”

This is so irritatingly consistant in human nature.

A very few people plan ahead, but the majority sit on their hands till complete catastrophe.

And what's worse, countries can now watch what happens to someone else, and they will STILL not do anything about it untill the catastrophe hits them, guaranteed.

It would be nice to get a IPV6 address from my ISP, but I don't think it will happen for a while yet. They just upped their monthly charge by four quid so that they can keep on maintaining their existing IPV4 network

@FSEAL: There are also companies who tend to put off until they cannot anymore (to avoid further expenditure.) Not so much a lack of planning ahead, but more of a saving first plan.

The save $100 today and spend $1,000 tomorrow to fix it, business plan.

Have seen this also, usually, before a management change. Doesn't help when the management strategy is 2-3 year change out schedule.

They'd probably reclaim a few million addresses if they culled some of their scam sites...

Don't we *have* to switch to it fairly soon, since IPs in general are running out? Unless there's an IPv7 or whatever in the works.

IPv6 v IPv4?
I have just been reading about this in a newsletter and I am confused as all heck as to what it means. Does this mean that IPv4 will not exist or exist alongside IPv6 or even can one communicate between a site with IPv6 if you have an IPv4 address and vice versa. I know the tech has got to...
