I’ve been taking some vacation in the past month so the posting has been quiet here. Catching up on news, it does not appear there is a lot of notable news in the IP address arena. However, here are a few links & notes that I’ve found catching up on the happenings in the past couple of weeks.
- RIPE’s “No Need – Post-Depletion Reality Adjustment and Cleanup” proposal (2013-03) was returned to the mailing list and is currently open for additional discussion.
- ARIN is getting very close the the 2 /8 equivalents remaining in their IPv4 free pool. The IPv4 free pool counter currently stands at 2.05. With the crossing of the 2 /8’s threshold ARIN will enter phase 3 of their count down plan.
- The Internet Governance Forum posted a commentary entitled “Secondary market for IPv4 addresses and the lessons of spectrum policy“
- Geoff Huston posted an update on the year since IPv6 launch date, “A year in the life“
