APNIC's role in IPv4 exhaustion

Over the past few years, APNIC has been building awareness among the community about IPv4 exhaustion and IPv6 deployment. APNIC staff give presentations at regional conferences and international forums with published statistics to guide decision makers on key issues.

APNIC has been distributing IPv6 since 1999 and offering training workshops for network operators since 2006. IPv6 has been deployed across APNIC's own network in Australia. There is an ongoing effort to reclaim unused IPv4 addresses within the Asia Pacific region for redistribution to networks that still need IPv4.
