Subject: Status of the 16-bit AS Number space
This is to let you know what we now have fewer than 10 blocks of
16-bit AS Numbers left in the IANA free pool.
Yesterday we allocated two blocks of 1,024 AS Numbers to ARIN, as
per the Global Policy for Allocation of ASN Blocks to Regional
Internet Registries, which was ratified by the ICANN board in July last year.
The unallocated 16-bit AS Number space is now 54272-64511. The full
registry can be viewed at:
We agreed to notify the IESG when we got to this point in the AS
Numbers registry. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.
