New IPv4 allocation for Anchor

May 6, 2009 Technical, General

Nobody is under any pretences that IPv6 will be close to 100% usage globally any time soon, so despite many entities having firm IPv6 plans or infrastructure already in place, demand for IPv4 is still strong. With that in mind, we’ve just acquired a new allocation from APNIC which will hopefully see us through until IPv6 is dominant on the Internet.

This allocation is from the 110/8 class A that was allocated to APNIC in November 2008, and represents a tripling of Anchor’s current IPv4 space. We’ll be following our current strict allocation policies to ensure it is the last additional IPv4 allocation we will need, and continuing with our current IPv6 plans as all responsible entities on the Internet should be doing.
