It states that the international authority that allocates IP address space depleted its pool of available addresses assigned to the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs). In the U.S., observers noted that the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) may lessen its available IPv4 address pool as early as January 2013, though they are optimistic about 2016 projections.
