Din rapoartele NetworkWorld, reiese ca ultimele doua protocoale internet versiunea 4(IPv4) au fost atribuite, ramanad astfel fara alte adrese. Incepand de acum, toate noile adrese de internet vor trece la versiunea noua de Internet Protocol, IPv6.
“The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) assigned two of the remaining blocks of IPv4 addresses – each containing 16.7 million addresses – to the Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) on Tuesday, as predicted. This action sparks an immediate distribution of the remaining five blocks of IPv4 address space, with one block going to each of the five Regional Internet Registries (RIR). The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN), which doles out IPv4 addresses to carriers and other network operators in North America, is expected to receive its last allotment of IPv4 addresses today.
Experts say it will take anywhere from three to seven months for the registries to distribute the remaining IPv4 addresses to carriers.”
