________________________________________________________________________ IPv4 Exhaustion Information ________________________________________________________________________ Dear APNIC community, We are writing to remind you that IPv4 exhaustion is an issue that should now be a priority for your organization. Most of you will be aware that the central pool of IPv4 addresses held by IANA was depleted in February. APNIC is currently delegating IPv4 addresses from its remaining pool. For more information on how APNIC currently delegates addresses, please refer to: http://www.apnic.net/ipv4-exhaustion/stages APNIC IPv4 Exhaustion Timeline? ------------------------------- Due to a large number of variables, the timeline for APNIC IPv4 exhaustion is not predictable with any assured accuracy. However, it is the APNIC Secretariat's role to make as much information as possible available to all stakeholders, so they may make their own assessments. You can view the current APNIC IPv4 address pool, which is updated daily: http://www.apnic.net/ipv4-exhaustion/graphs Deploy IPv6 Now --------------- If you are an APNIC Member, you can start your IPv6 deployment process today with the APNIC Kickstart IPv6 program. http://www.apnic.net/kickstartipv6 APNIC actively supports IPv6 deployment in the following ways: - APNIC services and website are accessible over IPv6 - IPv6 addresses are readily available to Members - APNIC provides IPv6 training courses - IPv6 liaison services - Regional IPv6 awareness initiatives For more information on how APNIC can assist you to deploy IPv6 visit: http://www.apnic.net/ipv6 _______________________________________________________________________ APNIC Secretariat secretariat at apnic dot net Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) Tel: +61 7 3858 3100 PO Box 3646 South Brisbane, QLD 4101 Australia Fax: +61 7 3858 3199 6 Cordelia Street, South Brisbane, QLD http://www.apnic.net ________________________________________________________________________ * Sent by email to save paper.
