IPv4 Exhaustion – Myths and Facts

Jul 16, 2015
Hilco Streambank discusses information surrounding ARIN's IPv4 address pool

07/09/15 – New York – The regional internet registry for the North America announced last week that their pool of IPv4 IP addresses is close to depletion. An announcement that the pool has been completely exhausted is imminent.   Although ARIN is using a waitlist to fill demand, Hilco Streambank has immediate inventory available. As the leading authority on the IPv4 marketplace worldwide, Hilco Streambank is issuing the following ALERT to help clients understand the facts.

MYTH: There are no more IPv4 addresses available in the ARIN region.

FACT: The ARIN region has the largest endowment of legacy addresses, many of which are unused and available through the brokerage community.  Hilco Streambank continues to have inventory available –through an online auction platform (www.ipv4auctions.com) as well as larger blocks through privately negotiated sales.

MYTH:  IPv4 addresses cost $10/each, or more.

FACT:  Prices vary based on size and other transaction terms. Prices in the $5 per address range have been available when buying very large blocks.  Small blocks, such as /24 to /18 tend to be more expensive.  See our auction site for pricing history of past sales (http://www.ipv4auctions.com/previous_auctions/).

MYTH: There’s a major risk my company will purchase IPv4 addresses and then not qualify to transfer them into our ARIN account.

FACT: Companies can apply for pre-approval with ARIN so they know how much space they can transfer in advance.  Alternatively, you can enter into a contract conditioned upon ARIN approval within a specified timeframe.  Additionally, purchasers of very large blocks can lock up all of the space they anticipate needing at today’s prices, and transfer that space into their ARIN accounts over time.

MAKE SURE YOU KNOW THE FACTS.
