Fwd: The IESG Approved the Expansion of the AS Number Registry

Afraid so. I'm hoping to be out of the industry before calls for 128 bit 
AS#s come down the pipe and people (at that time) are laughing about how 
silly 32 bit AS#s seem.

Does anyone have a current projection of when AS# (16 bit) exhaust will 
occur?

Thanks,

Deepak
