IPv4 Addresses Running Out

This week it was announced that
IANA has allocated 1.0.0.0/8 to APNIC
. This prefix must look familiar to
many as we see it often in examples and documentation. And let’s be honest
haven’t you used 1.1.1.1 on one of your test routers to quickly test
something?
Receiving a prefix from this range might result in some issues in
regards to duplicate announcements and duplicate address usages.

An interesting post on the ramifications of the recent allocation of the 1.0.0.0/8 IP range from the people at bgpmon.net.

How’s your hexadecimal?
