Remaining IPv4 Address Space Drops Below 5%

The Number Resource Organization (NRO)
announced today that less than five percent of the world’s IPv4
addresses remain unallocated. APNIC, the Regional Internet Registry for
the Asia Pacific region, has been assigned two blocks of IPv4 addresses
by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).

This latest allocation means that the IPv4 free pool dipped below 10% in January, just nine months ago. Since then, over 200 million IPv4 addresses have been allocated from IANA to the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs).

According to current depletion rates, the last five IPv4 address blocks will be allocated to the RIRs in early 2011. The pressure to adopt IPv6 is mounting.
