US IPv6 Usage Grows To 3 Million Users

darthcamaro writes “There is a myth that IPv6 is only for those in Asia, but that’s not true. According to new data discussed this week at an IETF conference, there are more IPv6 users in the U.S than anywhere else in the world — coming in at 3 million. From the article: ‘George Michaelson, senior R&D scientist at APNIC (Asia Pacific Network Information Centre) has a reasonable idea of what the current levels are globally for IPv6 adoption, thanks to some statistical research he has been doing. In his view, IPv6 is now a reality in terms of adoption. “I think you’re used to us standing up and saying ‘woe is me, woe is me, v6 isn’t happening,” George Michaelson, senior R&D scientist at APNIC (Asia Pacific Network Information Centre) said. “But it is actually happening, these are not trivial numbers of people that are now using IPv6 on a routine basis.”‘”

Asia Runs Out of IPv4 Addresses

ZerXes writes “It seems that APNIC has just released the last block of IPv4 addresses and are now completely out, a lot faster then expected. Even though APNIC received 3 /8 blocks in February the high growth of mobile devices made the addresses to run out even before the summer. ‘From this day onwards, IPv6 is mandatory for building new Internet networks and services,’ says APNIC Director General Paul Wilson.”

Last Available IPv4 Blocks Allocated

stoborrobots writes “Following on from APNIC’s earlier assessment that they would need to request the last available /8 blocks, they have now been allocated 39/8 and 106/8, triggering ARIN’s final distribution of blocks to the RIRs. According to the release, ‘APNIC expects normal allocations to continue for a further three to six months.’”

IPv4 Free Pool Drops Below 10%, 1.0.0.0/8 Allocated

mysidia writes “A total of 16,777,216 IP address numbers were just allocated to the Asian Pacific Network Information Centre IP address registry for assignment to users. Some venerable IP addresses such as 1.1.1.1 and 1.2.3.4 have been officially assigned to the registry itself temporarily, for testing as part of the DEBOGON project. The major address blocks 1.0.0.0/8 and 27.0.0.0/8, are chosen accordance with a decision by ICANN to assign the least-desirable remaining IP address ranges to the largest regional registries first, reserving most more desirable blocks of addresses for the African and Latin American internet users, instead of North America, Europe, or Asia. In other words: of the 256 major networks in IPv4, only 24 network blocks remain unallocated in the global free pool, and many of the remaining networks have been tainted or made less desirable by unofficial users who attempted an end-run around the registration process, and treated ‘RESERVED’ IP addresses as ‘freely available’ for their own internal use. This allocation is right on target with projected IPv4 consumption and was predicted by the IPv4 report, which has continuously and reliably estimated global pool IP address exhaustion for late 2011 and regional registry exhaustion by late 2012. So, does your enterprise intranet use any unofficial address ranges for private networks?” Reader dude_nl sends in a summary of the issues with allocating from 1.0.0.0/8 from the BGPmon.net blog. “As Alain Durand mentioned on Nanog: ‘Who said the water at the bottom of the barrel of IPv4 addresses will be very pure? We ARE running out and the global pain is increasing.’”
