IPv4 Address Exhaustion

An IPv4 address is a numerical representation of computers, which sit underneath the friendly names we use, like

According to Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), an organization responsible for delegating Internet resources, the last five /8 blocks was allocated to each regional organization overseeing the net-address assignments (RIR) on February 3, 2011. It marked the official depletion of the global IPv4 address pool, which has the size of 3.7 billion addresses.

In turn, each RIR will slowly exhaust its allotted address pool. Yet, new devices will be constantly added to the Internet - now and into the future.
