RIPE NCC IPv4 Available Pool - Graph

According to RIPE Policy, LIRs can receive one final /22 IPv4 allocation from the RIPE NCC's available pool. These graphs show the number of available and reserved addresses we have remaining.

Both graphs are updated weekly and adjusted as IPv4 addresses are distributed and returned.


These graphs are interactive. You can roll over the bars to see more information. You can also zoom in by dragging a rectangle over any desired section. To reset the view, simply double-click anywhere inside the graph.



These graphs show the following parts:

  • In dark green, you can see the status of 185.0.0.0 (the last /8) which is available for allocation.
  • In light green, 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 blue, 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.
