China Unicom to Run Short of IPv4 Addresses by Year-end

C114, 4/11/12

Tang Xiongyan, deputy chief engineer of China Unicom's (NYSE: CHU; 0762.HK; 600050.SH) Research Institute, recently announced that based on the current state of development, by the end of this year several provinces will run out of China Unicom IPv4 addresses. China Unicom holds nearly 70 mln IPv4 addresses, 80% of which are already in use. In some provinces, all available IPv4 addresses have already been exhausted.

Tang predicted that the evolution from IPv4 to IPv6 will be a gradual, long-term process and that for a time IPv4 and IPv6 will have to coexist, suggesting that the key to resolving the shortage problem lies in the accelerated development of IPv6.
