IPv4 adress pool running out

3. 2. 2011.

By activating "Global Policy for the Allocation of the Remaining IPv4 Address Space" today, Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) has assigned the last five public IPv4 adress blocks. This means that global IPv4 pool will be fully exhausted. On February 1st, 2011. IANA has assigned two /8 public IPv4 address blocks to the organisation APNIC, Regional Internet Registry (RIR) for region Asia-Pacific, thus leaving just five available IPv4 address blocks that will be assigned by activating "Global Policy for the Allocation of the Remaining IPv4 Address Space".  Regarding this issue press conference will be held today in Miami, USA and Number Resource Organization (NRO), Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), Internet Society (ISOC) and Internet Architecture Board (IAB) are expected to announce the activation of previously mentioned policy. Starting June 30th, 2009. University computing centre's public web site www.srce.unizg.hr was the first croatian public web site with IPv6 enabled logo.
