Brenac ipv4 broker


Inter-RIR transfers of IPv4 addresses can now be processed between APNIC, ARIN, RIPE NCC and LACNIC.

On July 21th 2020 LACNIC announced that they are now able to process inter-RIR IPv4 transfers.

More about it: 

Because APNIC, ARIN, RIPE NCC and LACNIC have reciprocal policies, this means ARIN, APNIC and RIPE NCC can now conduct inter-RIR IPv4 transfers between their region and LACNIC.

Continuing its development and contributing to a more accessible Internet, BRENAC Ipv4 broker is now sponsoring several probes from the RIPE Atlas project.

The RIPE NCC is building the largest Internet measurement network ever made. RIPE Atlas employs a global network of probes that measure Internet connectivity and reachability, providing an unprecedented understanding of the state of the Internet in real time.

Nearly 12.000 probes are active and we are sponsoring part of them. More about RIPE Atlas:

Volunteers from across the world help RIPE Atlas reach new places every day by hosting probes, the building blocks of our measurement network. Probes perform the active measurements which RIPE Atlas uses to collect data on Internet connectivity and reachability.

Hosting a RIPE Atlas probe is easy. You can either apply to host a hardware probe, which RIPE will ship to you for you to plug it into your router, or opt for a software probe, which you can install and run on your own infrastructure.

You will earn credits that you can use for your own customised measurements.

By sponsoring RIPE Atlas, BRENAC Ipv4 broker contributes to a free probe sent to all volunteers!

And of course we host one of them :!tab-general

The RIPE NCC has run out of IPv4 Addresses

On the 25th of November 2019, the final /22 IPv4 allocation from the last remaining addresses in the available pool was made by RIPE NCC. They have now run out of IPv4 addresses.

The announcement will not come as a surprise for network operators - IPv4 runout has long been anticipated and planned for by the RIPE community. In fact, it is due to the community's responsible stewardship of these resources that RIPE NCC have been able to provide many thousands of new networks in it service region with /22 allocations after they reached IANA/RIPE last /8 in 2012.

Recovered IPv4 Addresses and the Waiting List

Even though RIPE NCC have run out of IPv4, they will continue to recover IPv4 addresses in the future. These will come from organisations that have gone out of business or are closed, or from networks that return addresses they no longer need. These addresses will be allocated to members (LIRs) according to their position on a new waiting list that is now active.

While we therefore expect to be allocating IPv4 for some time, these small amounts will not come close to the many millions of addresses that networks in RIPE region need today. Only LIRs that have never received an IPv4 allocation from the RIPE NCC (of any size) may request addresses from the waiting list, and they are only eligible to receive a single /24 allocation.



  • In dark green, you can see the status of (the last /8) which is available for allocation.
  • In light green, you can see the other available addresses we have in our pool. This category includes addresses received from IANA’s Recovered IPv4 Pool. It also includes previously allocated or assigned address space that was returned by resource holders in our service region (e.g., when an LIR closes down) which are then added to the available address pool after a quarantine period.
  • In blue, you can see the address space that is currently reserved. Included in this category is a /13 for temporary assignments, a /16 for allocations to IXPs, and a /16 for unforeseen circumstances. This also includes recovered address ranges still in quarantine.
