    NextGeneration of Networks (NGN) is one of the most important research topics of the last decade. Current Internet is not capable of supporting new users and operators’ demands and a new structure will be necessary to them. In this context many solutions might be necessary: from architectural definitions to new protocols. Addressing protocols are a specific example of protocols which should be defined to support NGN requirements. One special required characteristic is automation of addresses assignment to facilitate networks operation and design. Many addressing levels can be considered, however, proposed solutions are usually restricted to local networks addresses distribution. In this paper we present an analysis over automatic address distribution to networks, allowing a correct local addresses’ assignment. Two allocation techniques are presented and evaluated to present the benefits of this kind of mechanisms. Finally, conclusions about the proposed methodologies and the protocols applicability are discussed.
