Netiquette IQ Blog Of The Day - The Exhaustion Of IPv4

========================================

IPv4 exhaustion stunts Internet growth in 2014

IPv4 network growth slows to about 8 per cent, reports APNIC

Adam Bender (Computerworld) on 23 January, 2015 14:09

Expansion of the Internet slowed in 2014 as the number of available IPv4 addresses neared exhaustion, according to a report by the Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC), the regional Internet registry for the Asia Pacific.

“In the IPv4 network it’s clear that address exhaustion in most parts of the world has acted as a very major constraint on the continued expansion of the network,” APNIC chief scientist Geoff Huston wrote in a blog post about the report.

"The network is still growing, but its no longer doubling in size each year. The current growth rate is around some 8% to 9% per year."
The report provides more detail on reasons for the slowdown.
"The correlation between network deployments and routing advertisements has been disrupted by the hiatus in supply of IPv4 addresses, causing more recent deployments to make extensive use of various forms of address sharing technologies," states the report, which is available on the APNIC website

IPv6 provides about 340 undecillion IP addresses, compared to the 4 billion addresses supported by IPv4. As the number of Internet-connected devices has grown, exhaustion of IPv4 addresses has necessitated the adoption of IPv6.

"The IPv6 network is still much smaller than the IPv4 network," said Huston.

"Much has been done to convert the core of the network to support IPv6, but at the access networks at the edge there is still much to be done. The IPv6 network is one twentieth of the size of the IPv4 network, but its growth rate is more than double that of IPv4, at some 20% per year."

Progress remains slow in the movement to IPv6, the APNIC report said.

 “While a small number of providers have made significant progress in public IPv6 deployments for their respective customer base, the overall majority of the Internet is still exclusively using IPv4,” the report said.

“This is despite the fact that among that small set of networks that have deployed IPv6 are some of the largest ISPs in the Internet!”

Netiquette IQ Blog Of The Day - Creativity in Netiquette



Many people associate Netiquette with traditional etiquette, with strict rules, stuffiness and usually seriously practiced by the very rich. Well, this concept is completely wrong except in regard to core principles, another topic altogether.

Netiquette may have some strict rules but it adaptable to social media, more modernized methods of communication and contemporary content.

Below is a section of my Netiquette book for job seekers, noted below which discusses Netiquette creativity.

Good Netiquette to all!

=================================

Netiquette Creativity – the potential differentiator

“You never get a second chance to make a first impression.”
—Will Rogers 

            Are business Netiquette and creativity mutually exclusive?  Are they partners by necessity?  Can they be combined to offer a stronger, more effective means of successful communication for the job seeker which result in more email opens, reads, interviews and the new job?
            The answers to the above questions is that email Netiquette and creativity are not only complimentary, but combined they offer a stronger and more effective vehicle for achieving your employment objectives.  When any recipient receives an email, we all know that an appropriate personalization adds a layer of acceptance, i.e., the following salutations:

            Dear Dale Carnegie – wrong
            Dear Carnegie – very wrong
            Dear Mr. Carnegie – correct

The need to capture attention

            Today’s job market is crowded, shifting demographically and, because of growing technology, inundated with résumés.  It is not uncommon to have hundreds of emails/résumés sent for a single job opening.  It is no longer enough to have a thoughtful, well designed and content-rich cover letter/résumé.  There is often a need for embellishments and enhancements to job seeker’s email to capture the recruiter’s /hiring manager’s attention beyond the 3-8 second interval for which many documents are given.  It really isn’t a strict set of rules for using creativity on your job search emails, it is more a question of when, where and to whom to do this.

In order to increase the opens, reads and sustained attention of the recipient, there are many items you can introduce into your email to distinguish it from others.  This, together with a strong Netiquette foundation will bring you to the level of a “Netiquette IQ One Percenter.” In achieving this, you will most assuredly accomplish your asserted goal of having your résumé opened and read.
