Now it's official, we are running out. Addresses IPv4 are about to end. This was announced by the NRO, the Number Resource Organization that is the association that brings together the five RIR, the Regional Internet Registries ie 5 subjects, one for each continent are to be entrusted to the allocation of IP addresses that is, those who are numeretti l 'unique address of each computer on the network.

With the award of two blocks / 8 that is, two blocks and passes 16 million addresses in APNIC ie register of Asia, the NRO announced that remain to be allocated less than 10% of IPv4 / 8.
In the particular case were awarded in January of this year, precisely to APNIC addresses of the form (yes, the unopuntozeropuntozeropuntozero) and

Remain to be assigned to 24 classes namely 5, 14, 23, 31, 36, 37, 39, 42, 49, 50, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 176, 177, 179 , 181, 185, 223 or a little PU 400 million clues. Sounds like a lot but, apparently, go away like bread.

Indeed, if one takes into account the proposed "n = 1" so that, when resources IPv4 will be minimal, it automatically will be assigned to each RIR a class A, then be assigned to classes I'm not 24 but 19.

The NRO therefore advised everybody to be boosted to the introduction of 'IPv6. I, like others, I have strong doubts in the introduction, by return of IPv6, but at least in words, it seems that the world swimming in that direction.

We'll see.

For further details I refer you to the advertiser NRA and the updated page with 'allocation of IPv4 addresses.
