What is the Issue?
With the depletion of IPv4, deploying IPv6 has become critical to the future of the Internet.
While IPv4 only afforded 4,294,967,296 addresses, IPv6 includes 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456 addresses! This massively large number of addresses will allow the Internet to grow, but it requires companies that use and distribute IP addresses to adapt their networks and systems to use IPv6.
Did You Know?
ARIN has been allocating IPv6 addresses since 1999 and has been actively advocating the need for organizations to deploy IPv6. You can find us at trade shows and conferences around our region and online.
Get IPv6 from ARIN
If you need an IPv6 allocation or assignment, there are plenty to go around. ARIN’s community-developed policies make it easy to get an IPv6 address block. The Requesting Resources page on ARIN’s website will show you how to get them.
