RIPE NCC IPv4 Available Pool

According to RIPE policy, LIRs can receive one final /22 IPv4 allocation from the RIPE NCC's available pool. The table below gives the number of available and reserved addresses we have remaining. However, note that there is currently a significant backlog of new LIR applications - the numbers below do not reflect the IPv4 space that will be allocated to these LIRs once their applications have been processed.

These figures are updated weekly and adjusted as IPv4 addresses are distributed and returned.

The graph below is interactive. You can zoom in by dragging a rectangle over any desired section. To reset the view, simply double-click anywhere inside the graph.

The different layers in the graph represent the following:

  • In dark blue (bottom layer), you can see the status of (the last /8) which is available for allocation.
  • In light blue (middle layer), you can see the other available addresses we have in our pool. This category includes addresses received from IANA's Recovered IPv4 Pool. It also includes previously allocated or assigned address space that was returned by resource holders in our service region (e.g., when an LIR closes down) which are then added to the available address pool after a quarantine period.
  • In very dark blue (top layer), you can see the address space that is currently reserved. Included in this category is a /13 for temporary assignments, a /16 for allocations to IXPs, and a /16 for unforeseen circumstances. This also includes recovered address ranges still in quarantine.
