Says the IP of IPv4 run out next month

Cerf, known as a father of the Internet, also cautioned that the current crop of 4.3 billion addresses is due to run out within a few weeks. But when Cerf points to those addresses, he's specifically talking about ones that use the current IPv4, a protocol that limits an IP address to four 8-bit numbers, or 32 bits in total, thus allowing for around 4.3 billion possible combinations.

I think it is possible that either one, the other, or both will be offered in the future. At least, this makes sense to me. Especially, where those issuers are using reclamation of unused IPv4 addresses, coupled with a business friendly environment which depends on maximizing traffic. Moving solely to an IPv6 format would limit access to new businesses.

I've read they'll run both systems at the same time for about 6 months to allow everyone time to switch over, plus work out the glitches.

The major backbones and the TDLs have their routers in place and have been testing for awhile. They have no choice but to go live next month.
