Press Release updated: Sep 1, 2020 06:00 EDT

Brander Group Inc. has been selected as the exclusive IPv4 broker for North Caroline Independent Colleges and Universities (NCICU), which includes 36 private, nonprofit liberal arts, research, and comprehensive colleges and universities located in the state of North Carolina.  All of these institutions are accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. 

This new partnership serves as another Brander Group achievement, and it consistently grows market share within the internet connectivity, data center network infrastructure industry. Brander Group has steadily built a prominent reputation as a forerunner in the IPv4 brokerage and connectivity consultancy field and helps educational institutions sell IP addresses while assisting organizations that need to buy IP address blocks in ARIN, RIPE, and APNIC regions. 

Brander Group works with organizations and institutions that find themselves having excess underutilized IPv4 address space by bringing their assets to market, linking them with reliable buyers and assisting them to navigate the legal and technical process of transferring IPv4 address blocks. Using its vast market influence and industry knowledge, Brander Group also helps companies buy IP addresses and helps them through cumbersome IPv4 transfer policies, potential pitfalls, market dynamics, and transfer requirements.

About Brander Group

Brander Group has clients in over 40 countries and securely carries out between 40 and 50 global IPv4 sales and transfers each month in ARIN, RIPE, and APNIC regions for IPv4 block sizes ranging from a /24 up to a /12. To improve the supply in the IPv4 market, Brander Group identifies IPV4 blocks that have been allocated but not in use and facilitates the transfer to qualified buyers.
