- ARIN's IPv4 free pool has been depleting, on average, by approximately 35 million addresses each year since 2011, and as of December 2013, there were only 25 million IPv4 addresses remaining;
- Based on historical rates, IPv4 addresses from ARIN's free pool will likely be exhausted by the end of this year;
- The percent of IPv6 enabled networks worldwide is less than 20% (17.28%) - in the United States, it's less than 15% (12.90%);
- There are very few certified IPv6 network engineers (estimated to be less than 1,800 worldwide); and,
- The impending depletion of IPv4 addresses from ARIN's free pool, coupled with the low rate of IPv6 migration in the United States, will drive demand in 2014 for both IPv4 address acquisition, and IPv6 migration from a limited pool of resources. Start planning today.
