After the IP address, Is it Doomsday for the Internet?

The issue will end IPv4 has resonated among the Internet players in recent years.  Various calculations performed, and until the middle of last year, ending freepool IPv4 IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) is estimated at around mid-2011 this.

IP Address allocation in the world is controlled by the IANA, and underneath there is the division of five regions based on geography.  Indonesia shelter under the Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC), based in Australia.

February 1, 2011, granted the request IANA provided APNIC and 2 blocks / 8 final.  and, this time ending in the IANA IPv4 freepool.  Indeed, there are 5 blocks / 8 again who saved the IANA, but blocks are immediately distributed evenly to each region: Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Africa, and Europe.  Last five blocks will also be allocated to users in a manner that is much more stringent than before and the maximum is much smaller.

"This is a great history in the development of the internet in the world although it has been anticipated in advance," said Raúl Echeberría, director of the Number Resource Organization (NRO), which is the official representative of the IP Address management institutions in each region.  "The future of the Internet is IPv6. All relevant components must make concrete steps for immediate use IPv6," he said.

IPv4 end is indeed a blow heavy enough for most countries in the Asia Pacific region.  "This region is the region with the largest population in the world and has rapid economic growth. Almost all the country's internet infrastructure is developing rapidly."  argues Geoff Huston, Chief Scientist APNIC.

Obstacles faced

There are several obstacles to be faced with this IPv4 freepool endless.

First, providers and network infrastructure will be difficult to give a public IP allocation to new customers.  Must be done using private IP address translation process.  In general, customers can access the Internet, but there are some special applications that require direct connection to be not working.  Create a new ISP will be the thing that is nearly impossible if there is not a new IPv4 allocations.

Second, on the server provider, the addition of public IP is an absolute requirement to add the server.  Content server that aims to access the internet requires a lot of visitors from the public IP.  The unavailability of public IP directly would inhibit the development of content industries.

Do it now

For content providers, owners of large networks, colleges, banks, and various institutions that have network and internet content, there's little time to immediately ask for the allocation of IPv4 as well as straight run IPv6.

There are many advantages if we have an IPv4 own.  We can subscribe to more than one ISP, and perform load balance and simultaneously fail over to multiple upstream links them.  We are also more flexible to switch ISPs because they do not need to change the IP address because the IP address that we use is permanently allocated to us, do not depend on loans from the ISP's IP.

For content providers such as banks, have their own IP is also better in terms of security.  If you do a whois on an IP address, the data listed is the identity of our own institutions, rather than the ISP which we subscribe.

Institutions that wish to obtain IPv4 allocation can contact Indonesia Network Information Center (DENIC) on the web or e-mail

Migration to IPv6

In the future, IPv6 is the definitive answer to the problem of IPv4 end to this.  IPv6 promises a much larger amount.  If IPv4 only amounted to 4.3 billion IP, IPv6 totaled 4 trillion trillion trillion trillion IP.  What a difference a number of very significant.

In addition, the IPv6 protocol is also promising better security because security protocols are built, unlike IPv4 is optional.

All parties associated with the use of network and IP Address are expected at this time also began to migrate to IPv6.  in some time to come, IPv4 and IPv6 running concurrently (dual-stack) until one day we can fully enjoy the use of IPv6.
