ROADS – Running Out of ADdressSpace

Term used to describe the situation being faced by the Internet community due to the exhaustion of IPv4 Addresses. As a result, the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) introduced a technique known as Classless Addressing or CIDR (Classless Inter-Domain Routing) which enabled IP addresses to be used more efficiently. The longer term solution to the problem is IPv6.
