With a newer IPv6 protocol in place, one would think IPv4 would already be a thing of the past. The issue is simple yet very complex at the same time. IPv6, while technically offers superior benefits to address allocations and future growth, still has a level of complexity that most companies do not want to deal with.
There is also a large cost associated with moving old infrastructure off the IPv4 protocol, and onto IPv6. This becomes even more cumbersome for large network operators, cable companies and hosting providers who have their clients infrastructure deeply entrenched with IPv4. It is nearly impossible for them to manage the process of protocol adaption several degrees out of their reach.
IPv6 has been readily available for over 10 years, well before IPv4 space was unavailable. With only an estimated 15% of company adaption by 2017, the need and scarcity of IPv4 continues to grow. It is imperative to plan a year in advance of needing additional space, and to choose the right partners to secure the space when you need it. Reach out to an advisor today to buy IPv4 space or discuss your future needs.
IPv4 internet address space is running out rapidly. In the North America and Canada region there are no IPv4 addresses left. Any business requiring more address space will have to resort to buying their IP blocks. In Europe, where RIPE NCC is the regional internet registry, each member is only entitled to a last /22. This translates to 1024 IP addresses. Any company that needs more than shall have to buy from other members that have space left, if any. In 2011 the first IPV4 transaction took place between Nortel and Microsoft at USD 11.25 per IP address for 666.624 IP addresses.
The biggest problem that the current IPv4 market has is that there are very few indicators of price. It is IPv4.deals’s mission to take out all this clutter.
The idea of someone having to buy IPv4 address space may have been unheard of 10 years ago, however, today it is the only way to acquire an otherwise limited resource. The official exhaustion of IPv4 addresses with ARIN and RIPE in 2015, created the demand for a secondary transfer market. And just like any limited resource marketplace, the prices have continued to rise over the years.
