[Apnic-announce] Significant Announcement about the Status of the IPv4 A
Leading Global Internet Groups make Significant Announcement about the
Status of the IPv4 Address Pool
APNIC invites the Internet Community to be a part of an important
milestone in the history of the Internet.
Much has been written in the international media over the last few
weeks about the dwindling pool of Internet addresses using the original
Internet protocol, called IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4). This
week, IANA allocated two /8 address blocks to the Asia Pacific Network
Information Centre (APNIC).
As such, the Number Resource Organization (NRO), along with the
Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the
Internet Society (ISOC), and the Internet Architecture Board (IAB) will
be holding a press conference and presentation to make a significant
announcement and to discuss the global transition to the next
generation of Internet addresses.

Rod Beckstrom, ICANN President and CEO
Raul Echeberria, NRO Chair
Lynn St. Amour, ISOC President and CEO
Olaf Kolkman, IAB Chair
