Soon or late it will end up here to “IPv4 is DEAD, go and develop IPv6”, that’s 
a regular answer here when you bring up something related to IPv4 J


Your idea looks like a disk defragmentation procedure, but first you need to 
check how many percent it is defragmented and how much free space you will need 
to do the procedure.

Subject: [address-policy-wg] Idea for aggregating IP addresses




One of the goals of RIPE is to aggregate IP addresses. I'd like to suggest the 
ability for a LIR and End User to exchange number of blocks of IP ranges for a 
greater block.


For example:

LIR/End User has 4 different /22 subnets and LIR/End User can exchange these 
subnets for 1 x /20 subnet.


This gives a LIR or End User the possibility to announce larger IP subnets to 
the Internet. Helping the goal of aggregating the IP addresses on the Internet.


According one of the RIPE trainer, this is currently not possible according the 
RIPE policy. Because there's no policy to give a LIR/End User this ability.


I'm curious to what you think of this idea.


Best regards,



Ping IP network
