Free Pool of IPv4 Address Space Depleted

Published on 03 February 2011 by in Membership, News


The title of this post is just how the Number Resource Organization (NRO), the coordinating body of the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs), reported today that there is no more IPv4 address space left to allocate. The days of the IPv4 Internet are now numbered – no pun intended – and we have to look to IPv6 from here on in.

You can take a look at the NRO statement here, and a couple of great articles on the topic are this one here at ZDNet and here on the BBC.

If this is all new to you and/or to your colleagues and you need clear information to help you communicate what’s going on and how you might go about addressing the issue – oh dear, no pun intended there either – then our resources page should be your next stop.

Last but not least, if you would like your organisation to be seen as an Internet leader, you can find details on how to join 6UK here.
