We consider the problem of fast IP address lookup in the forwarding engines of Internet routers. We analyze over 2400 public snapshots of routing tables collected over five years, discovering what we call the middle-class effect. We exploit this effect for tailoring a simple solution to the IP lookup scheme, taking advantage of the skewed distribution of Internet addresses in routing tables. Our algorithmic solution is easy to implement as it is tantamount to performing an indirect memory access. Its performance can be bounded tightly and has very low memory dependence (e.g. just one memory access to off-chip memory in the hardware implementation). It can quickly handle route announcements and withdrawals on the fly, with a small cost which scales well with the number of routes. Concurrent access is permitted during these updates.
