[Apologies for duplicate emails]

Dear Colleagues,

Today, Friday 15 April 2011, APNIC, the Regional Internet Registry
(RIR) for the Asia Pacific region, announced that it has distributed
the final IPv4 address space from its reserves of IPv4.

This means that APNIC is now supplying IPv4 address space to its
members from the last /8 it holds according to the guidelines in
section 9.10 in "Policies for IPv4 address space management in the
Asia Pacific region":

This event does not affect the RIPE NCC's reserves of IPv4 address
space and we will continue to distribute these resources to our
members on the basis of need until we reach the last /8.

According to RIPE Document ripe-509, section 5.6, once the RIPE NCC
reaches the last /8 of IPv4 address space, each Local Internet
Registry (LIR) can receive one /22 (1024 IPv4 addresses) upon
application for IPv4 resources. In order to obtain this /22
allocation, the LIR must already have an IPv6 allocation and have a
demonstrated need for address space.

IPv6 - Act Now

The RIPE NCC cannot predict how long its own supply of IPv4 address
space will last and has worked for several years to inform all
stakeholders of the urgent need to deploy IPv6.

It is now imperative that all stakeholders deploy IPv6 on their
networks to ensure the continuity of their online operations and the
long-term growth of the Internet.

For more information on IPv6 and its deployment, advice from experts
and where to get training, please see:
