according to foreign media reports, NRO this Monday (the global Internet address number resource allocation and management agency) said he will be early next year will be distributed to the remaining IPv4 address allocation management mechanism of regional web site (RIRs). After that, the IPv4 address will be declared exhausted, which has been a problem for many years. In this case, the network operators will be more pressure, must be converted to the IPv6 address system area as soon as possible, in order to solve the problem of IP address scarcity.
The last time
to IPv4 allocated to the Internet Network Information Center in the Asia Pacific region (APNIC), address number resource allocation and management mechanism of global Internet (NRO) said, by the organization and management of the free IP address only 12 block. Each block represents 16 million addresses.
this will become an important milestone in the development of the global network, which means that the final IPv4 assigned to the regional web site distribution authority (RIRs) will soon come. IPv4 address will be consumed. Address number resource allocation and management mechanism of global Internet (NRO) chairman Axel Pawlik said at a news conference; global network participants should start from several aspects of organization, technical standards, policies and funding, to ensure smooth transition from IPv4 to IPv6.
IP address is the key to the flow of network communication, each connected to the network of computers, servers or routers need to have their own IP address, so as to ensure the smooth flow of the global network of highways.
IPv4 in early 1980s at the time of the network is defined by various universities, research institutions and the 32 bit address, a lot of people think this is very good; but about ten years after people began to worry about the future one day IPv4 address will be exhausted.
to the mid 20s, commercial and home users are beginning to connect to the network, so that the more serious concerns. At the same time, in 1995, the new version of the IP protocol provides "IPv6" by the network Engineering Task Force, which is converted from the original 32 address to the address of the 128.
‘s new IP protocol increases the number of addresses available, but the problem is that these two systems are not compatible, resulting in the use of very slow speed. NAT technology allows several devices to use the same IP address, which has greatly delayed the date of IPv4 consumption, but now this time will no longer be far away.
global Internet address number resource allocation management mechanism (NRO) to distribute IP address block to the five regional distribution site management organization (RIRs), then they put the IP address distribution to the various regions of the company and organization. The last five address blocks will be distributed evenly to each of the regional web site allocation authorities (RIRs), which means that only 7 are left in the distribution system
