What happens after ARIN depletes its free pool of IPv4 address space? Will there be a Phase 5 added to the IPv4 Countdown Plan? Is the IPv4 inventory counter always accurate? These are just some of the questions we’ve been hearing in recent weeks. We understand that IPv4 depletion is causing confusion and uncertainty, so we’d like to try address some of these common questions and provide some additional information on the current status of IPv4 run-out at ARIN.
Last year, ARIN Engineering undertook a monumental effort to move production from our headquarters in Chantilly, Virginia to a colocation center in Ashburn, Virginia. There were many reasons behind this big move, and we were very happy to complete a flawless transfer of our operations. ARIN has its offices in an office park nestled next to Dulles Airport in northern Virginia.
This week ARIN is at CES, the largest technology tradeshow of the year. We will be reaching out to consumer electronics industry movers and shakers to educate them about the importance of deploying IPv6 on all public facing web services. In the video below, one of the founding fathers of the Internet, Vint Cerf, explains the issue. Stop by our booth in Tech East to discuss why IPv6 needs to be at the top of your company’s technology goals for 2015. You want to be reaching the whole Internet, not just part of it.
After many years of outreach to our core community of Internet Service Providers, web hosting companies, cable providers and large academic institutions, we are branching out. We are now working to drive all organizations with a web presence to put their content out over IPv6, with an emphasis on public-facing websites in particular. We took our new Get 6 booth to the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) Technology Conference last week with the message to connect to the whole Internet with IPv6.
The ARIN Consolidated RIR IANA Stewardship Proposal (CRISP) team members, along with our colleagues from each of the other four RIRs, are hard at work preparing the proposal to submit to the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG). We’ve had four conference calls so far in addition to an initial face-to-face meeting. We held our most recent conference call yesterday on 18 December, and we are making good progress. The first draft of the Consolidated RIR IANA Transition Proposal is now available for review and comment.
