RIPE NCC Receives /12 IPv6 Allocation From IANA

ipv6 iana news world ipv6 day

On 5 June 2019, the RIPE NCC received the following IPv6 allocation from IANA:


IPv6 Global Unicast Address Assignments

We received our previous /12 allocation (2a00:0000::/12) on 3 October 2006. The conditions under which we qualified for an additional allocation are described in the IANA Policy For Allocation of IPv6 Blocks to RIRs.

The RIPE NCC is the first RIR to receive an additional /12 IPv6 block. As today is also the seventh anniversary of World IPv6 Launch Day, we published an article on RIPE Labs that looks at some of the history of IPv6 and how it has been distributed in our service region.
