IPv4 Address Allocation Exhausted, IPv6 Adoption Accelerates

Posted by at 2:19 am on February 2, 2011

A10 Networks, the technology leader in Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs), today announced that the IPv4 address pool is effectively exhausted according to industry accepted indicators (source: http://www.potaroo.net/tools/ipv4/). The final allocations under the existing framework are now allocated, which triggers the processes for IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) to assign the final five IPv4 /8 blocks, one to each of the five regional registries. With exhaustion of the IANA pool of IPv4 addresses, no further IPv4 addresses can be issued to the regional registries that provide addresses to organizations.

IPv4 address depletion is an important milestone that has been anticipated for more than a decade.
