Hilco Streambank’s IPv4.GLOBAL Awarded a Competitively Solicited Contract with E&I Cooperative Services for IPv4 Address Sales and Acquisition

New Agreement makes IPv4.GLOBAL’s auctions, private sales and leasing services available to E&I members in higher education, K-12, and healthcare teaching institutions across the U.S.

Hilco Streambank’s IPv4.GLOBAL, the world’s most experienced internet protocol address broker, today announced that it has been awarded a competitively solicited contract by E&I Cooperative Services (E&I) to provide its members with these often-overlooked educational assets. Premium services - at discounted costs - are available to E&I’s more than 5,500 member institutions across the U.S. The contract is effective immediately, runs through January 31, 2027, and includes a renewal option.

Through this contract, IPv4.GLOBAL provides E&I members with assistance in the private sale or public auction of IP addresses on its web platform. IPv4.GLOBAL will also help the seller of addresses transfer them to the buyer. Escrow services for these transfers will be supplied at no additional charge.

“We’re very happy to be awarded the E&I contract to help serve their members,” said Gabe Fried, CEO of Hilco Streambank and IPv4.GLOBAL. “Hilco Streambank and IPv4.GLOBAL are thrilled to have a cooperative contract vehicle to support the work we’ve done for educational institutions and the services we provide. We look forward to helping these institutions raise much-needed cash through the sale of their surplus IPv4 addresses.”

According to Keith Fowlkes, Vice President, Technology at E&I, E&I members will benefit significantly from finding new revenue through sales of their unused IPv4 address blocks. “Opportunities for revenue generation on campus are increasingly important given the current financial climate. We’re excited about the addition of this new competitively solicited agreement to our technology contract portfolio. Our members now have easy access to their full range of services at discounted contract rates.”
