The article reports on the warning given by the Organization for Economic Co-operation & Development (OECD) on the status of Internet addresses worldwide. It believes that such addresses could run out unless governments and businesses take action on the issue. Report reveals that nearly 85% of all available Internet addresses are already in use by May 2008. Experts believe that if current trends continue, Internet addresses will run out by 2011, thus new Internet users or mobile devices will not be able to access the Internet. They believed that Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the answer because it will provide an unlimited number of addresses and help drive the rollout of broadband, Internet-connected mobile phones and sensor networks.
