The Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) and the Taskforce on IPv4 Address Exhaustion entered into an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on 28 November 2008 to address the issues surrounding the exhaustion of IPv4 address space.
Paul Wilson, Director General of APNIC, commented on the signing of the MoU with the Task Force on IPv4 Address Exhaustion, "APNIC is very pleased to be able to collaborate on the important work of the Task Force on IPv4 Address Exhaustion. The supply of objective and accurate information on IPv4 exhaustion and IPv6 transition is critical to effective decision making on these issues."
Both parties intend to cooperate by promoting a shared sense of urgency about IPv4 address exhaustion and the necessity of deploying effective countermeasures in the Asia Pacific region, exchanging information and materials, and rendering mutual assistance where required.
Professor Hiroshi Esaki, the Taskforce representative, added: "Addressing global IPv4 address depletion requires strategic and practical collaboration on a global level. This MoU with APNIC contributes not only to Asia Pacific economies, but to all affected economies globally. Educational activities and address policy management development will be our bottom line contribution to the global Internet community."
