IP Addresses Will Run out in a Year

Calm, do not panic (or take, whatever …). The fact is that experts say we have less than one year before the IP addresses that make use of standard currently most used (IPv4, Internet Protocol version 4) are completely sold out. But there is still salvation, IPv6 (yes, you guessed it, is the Internet Protocol version 6).

Each IPv4 address consists of a 32-bit number, which means that there are about 4 billion unique addresses. The ARIN (the organization responsible for managing the distribution of IP addresses in North America) states that 94% of these addresses have already been allocated, and the pace at which we are, the last 6% should end being allocated over the next year.

Here it is the observation that, for years, the remaining time for which the IPv4 would be feasible has been calculated and recalculated, with mixed results. Note also that the demand for IP addresses is not stable, then we may be at a peak right now and have a valley over the next year. Thus, it is clear, the situation may not be as critical as well. But assuming it still remains one salvation: IPv6.

Unlike the address 32-bit IPv4, IPv6 addresses are 128 bits according to Growtheology. Whereas the amount of available addresses increases exponentially with the number of bits used, this means many new addresses. The approximately 3.4 × 10 38 IPv6 addresses would be enough to assign about 50 thousand trillion trillion IP addresses for every man, woman and child who now lives on the planet.

The move to IPv6, however, is not so trivial. Fortunately some big companies like Google and Facebook are leading the way and making their transition. And is it only a year or more is our term for the exhaustion of IPv4 is getting tight, and IPv6 shown something much more suited to the proportions that the Internet has reached in the last years. Thus, one year survival rate or more, the transition is very welcome.
