IANA Allocates 39/8 & 106/8 to APNIC

IANA has allocated 39/8 and 106/8 to APNIC, the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) for the Asia Pacific region.

This event triggers a longly anticipated day by the global Internet community when based on the “Global Policy for the Allocation of the remaining IPv4 Address Space

That states:

During this phase IANA will automatically allocate the reserved IPv4 allocation units to each RIR (one /8 to each one) and respond to the last request with the remaining available allocation units at the IANA pool

IANA will be allocating one /8 to each RIR.

We expect IANA to allocate these final /8s within the next few days.
