Das Ende des Internets ist nahe!
IANA allocates its last IPv4 /8 to an RIR on the 22nd May 2010
Bereuet, das Ende ist Nahe!
Unter dem Strich läuft es aber darauf hinaus, dass IPv6 so schnell wie möglich aktiv und flächendeckend eingesetzt werden sollte. Dazu gibt es auch RIPE Community Statement:
Growth and innovation on the Internet depends on the continued availability of IP address space. The remaining pool of unallocated IPv4 address space is likely to be fully allocated within two to four years. IPv6 provides the necessary address space for future growth. We therefore need to facilitate the wider deployment of IPv6 addresses.
While the existing IPv4 Internet will continue to function as it currently does, the deployment of IPv6 is necessary for the development of future IP networks. The RIPE community has well-established, open and widely supported mechanisms for Internet resource management. The RIPE community is confident that its Policy Development Process meets and will continue to meet the needs of all Internet stakeholders through the period of IPv4 exhaustion and IPv6 deployment.
We recommend that service providers make their services available over IPv6. We urge those who will need significant new address resources to deploy IPv6. We encourage governments to play their part in the deployment of IPv6 and in particular to ensure that all citizens will be able to participate in the future information society. We urge that the widespread deployment of IPv6 be made a high priority by all stakeholders.
Gary Feldman von der RIPE Secret Working Group hat die Problematik für die Abschlusssitzung nochmals nett zusammengefasst:
