All European IPv4 addresses, including spares, are used up



Reported that the IPv4 address assigned to the European region was exhausted before December 2019, as previously predicted, in the `` IP address depletion problem '' that has been around for about 10 years it was done.

The IPv4 address is centrally managed by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) , and the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) in each region distributes IP addresses assigned by IANA. However, the IPv4 addresses managed by IANA were depleted on February 3, 2011, and after that, only the inventory managed by RIR was allocated.

As of April 15, 2011, APNIC , an RIR in the Asia-Pacific region, reported that IPv4 address inventory was exhausted, and ARIN, which manages the North American area, announced that IPv4 addresses were exhausted in 2015. .

Even in Europe IP Resource Network Coordination Center (RIPE NCC) , which is responsible for IP address assignment in Europe , IPv4 addresses were exhausted in April 2018. After that, we allocated spare addresses, but in October 2019 we announced that the remaining IPv4 addresses will definitely be exhausted in November .

As predicted, “We assigned the last available address at 15:35 on November 25, 2019 (local time in the Netherlands). Our announcement is not surprising for network operators. IPv4 exhaustion Has been anticipated and planned for many years, 'RIPE NCC reported.

According to RIPE NCC, allocation of IPv4 addresses that have been discarded or are no longer needed will continue to be allocated, but will not meet the millions of new address demands that jurisdictions require. about. From this point on, it is necessary to proceed with the transition to IPv6 , which was born to solve the IPv4 address exhaustion problem, and to prevent the shortage of IP addresses.

Some point out that 'IPv6 is not very popular', but since the demand for new IP addresses will not disappear in the future, it is considered that IPv6 will spread as a matter of time. RIPE NCC also said, “It's a long way to go, but we will call on all stakeholders to play a role in supporting the deployment of IPv6.”
