APNIC First to Run Out of IPv4 Addresses

Someone had to be first, and it looks like it’s APNIC. Earlier this year all of the regional registries were given a final /8, and APNIC is the first to reach the end game. Have you thought about your IPv6 plans lately?

 

Dear APNIC community

We are writing to inform you that as of Friday, 15 April 2011, the APNIC
pool reached the Final /8 IPv4 address block, bringing us to Stage Three
of IPv4 exhaustion in the Asia Pacific. For more information about Stage
Three, please refer to:

Last /8 address policy
———————-

IPv4 requests will now be assessed under section 9.10 in “Policies
for IPv4 address space management in the Asia Pacific region”:

http://www.apnic.net/policy/add-manage-policy#9.10

APNIC’s objective during Stage Three is to provide IPv4 address space
for new entrants to the market and for those deploying IPv6.

>From now, all new and existing APNIC account holders will be entitled
to receive a maximum allocation of a /22 from the Final /8 address
space.

For more details on the eligibility criteria according to the Final /8
policy, please refer to:
