1,000 /22s Allocated from Last /8
On 14 September 2012, the RIPE NCC started allocating from the last /8 of IPv4 addresses we received from IANA. This week we allocated the 1,000th /22!

We look at the RIPE NCC in terms of growth, geographic distribution and IPv6 deployment. We find that recent RIPE policy changes have had an impact on membership statistics and development trends.
In September 2012 the RIPE NCC reached its last /8 of available IPv4 addresses. This activated a new phase in the RIPE IPv4 policies, with each LIR now eligible to receive one final /22 allocation. In this article we look at developments in IPv4 allocations and remaining addresses at the RIPE NCC i…
The RIPE NCC will shortly reach a point where we have approximately one month's worth of IPv4 address space (approximately /10) to distribute before we reach the last /8. Once we reach this point, several adjustments will be made to our standard procedures, so the RIPE NCC decided to do a "dry run"…
At the recent RIPE Meeting we presented some IPv6 address distribution statistics which we would like to share with a wider audience. In the article below, you can find statistics on IPv6 allocations and assignments. In particular, the article details what affect the removal of the requirement to b…
2011 was an interesting year for IPv4. But did we see a big run on the remaining IPv4 address space? See some statistics and analysis below.

“Hello, I wanted to ask how exactly the RIPE database gets all the detailed information about the websites (IPs). Is it manually inserted? Thanks”
Hi Helen, if I understand you correctly you are asking who enters the information regarding IP addresses and other Internet number resources in the RIPE Database and how? The RIPE NCC enters the information regarding the Internet number resources ( IPs and ASNs) that we distribute directly. For example, a member requests IP addresses from the RIPE NCC. We evaluate/review the information provided to us and when we are ready we create the database object. These objects will have for example the status ALLOCATED PA. Our members further distribute IPs to their own network and to their customers. The member creates the database object to reflect this. In this example those objects will have status ASSIGNED PA. Does this answer your question?
