Plagued with uncertainties and ambiguities of the development in the public adaptation of IPv6, IPv4 becomes a commodity that gives rise to lease IPv4. Leasing IPv4 is a crucial component, especially if it becomes a better option for corporations to capitalize massive investment over an asset that may not be pivotal to their business needs and demand.
The evolution of the internet posed an unprecedented threat that led to the rapid exhaustion of IPv4. This threat of rapid exhaustion gave birth to the Internet Engineering Task Force (“IETF”), which was tasked to tackle the matter at hand. The IETF later debuted with a redesigned Internet Protocol or, commercially known as IPv6.
However, both IPv4 and IPv6 are two different addressing methods, and there is still much uncertainty in the plausibility of IPv6 replacing the commercial application of the IPv4 – at least not anytime soon!
We have seen some IPv6 deployment within some Internet Service Providers (“ISP”) throughout the years. Many of them have IPv6 as their backbone but not for the end-users. This serves as the intranet of the organizations used by their employees to serve their customers better. A couple of factors hindering the public deployment of IPv6 are the cost and time. The upgrading exercise is expected to be expensive and time-consuming, especially the process of upgrading all servers, routers, and switches from IPv4 to IPv6.
In comparison, the price of procuring, let alone leasing, IPv4 is relatively cheaper than the cost of an entire network overhaul for deploying the IPv6 network. According to a Google report in 2018, there is only less than 5% of IPv6 deployment, even in G20 countries. Based on the earlier mentioned research, the public network block, which is still the main point of connection for the internet, relies heavily on IPv4. Therefore, IPv6 deployment could possibly be an uncertain asset for a corporation at the time being. IPv4 addresses are always the mainstream standard over the internet, and it will also be so in the foreseeable future. As we can see, based on the current trend, IPv6 practically has no commercial advantage over IPv4.
Notwithstanding IPv4 having a huge demand, the procurement of IPv4 can be timely and complicated in certain instances. Furthermore, the rapid exhaustion of IPv4 has a direct correlation to the constantly increasing cost of fully procuring and maintaining IPv4. Hence, the IPv4 lease becomes a cost-effective and time-friendly option for corporations regardless of their size and operational needs.
‘There is no other company that really specializes in IP address leasing in the market, only LARUS is doing it seriously,’ said Paul Lam, Senior Director of LARUS. “We developed the IP lease market by offering unique and speedy IP lease solutions to support businesses to overcome the shortage of IPv4.”
