A Tale of Using Public DNS Servers in Iran — Part 1
A Tale of Using Public DNS Servers in Iran — Part 1
Babak Farrokhi — Feb 05, 2016 07:50 AM

While most Internet users are not aware of the importance of DNS resolution in their overall web browsing experience, they often complain about shortage of bandwidth when experiencing sluggish Internet connectivity. It is no surprise that most of the service providers also ignore this fact by redirecting their customer DNS traffic to public DNS servers.

The Revamped RIPE Atlas Website
The Revamped RIPE Atlas Website
Suzanne Taylor Muzzin — Feb 04, 2016 03:25 PM

RIPE Atlas has been in operation for more than five years now, and its network of probes and users has grown tremendously in that time. We’ve also added anchors, sponsors and ambassadors to the system, developed a huge array of new tools, visualisations and features, and RIPE Atlas data is now being used by network operators, engineers and researchers around the world. As a result, we thought it was time to revamp the RIPE Atlas website, which hadn’t changed much over the past five years despite all the changes to RIPE Atlas itself. Get an overview of some of the biggest changes and new features - then check out the new site, which launches today!

I was at FOSDEM 2016 last weekend, and wrote up a few of my observations around DNS there. Enjoy!

RIPE Atlas Year in Review 2015
Vesna Manojlovic — Jan 29, 2016 03:45 PM

RIPE Atlas had another successful year in 2015, thanks in large part to all our users, hosts, sponsors, ambassadors and other community members. Here we take a look back at some of the achievements we reached together, the new features we implemented, key facts and figures - and offer a sneak peek of what you can expect in 2016.

Evaluating IPv4 and IPv6 Packet Fragmentation
Evaluating IPv4 and IPv6 Packet Fragmentation
Geoff Huston — Jan 29, 2016 10:35 AM

One of the more difficult design exercises in packet-switched network architectures is that of the design of packet fragmentation. In this article, I’d like to examine IP packet fragmentation in detail and look at the design choices made by IP version 4, and then compare that with the design choices made by IP version 6.

Measuring More Internet with RIPE Atlas
Measuring More Internet with RIPE Atlas
Emile Aben — Jan 27, 2016 01:20 PM

RIPE Atlas collects a lot of measurements. But how much of the Internet are we actually measuring? We had a sense that with a limited amount of extra load on the system, we could dramatically increase the number of router IPs seen on a given day in RIPE Atlas - and that means measuring more of the Internet.

Behind the Curtain: Making IPv6 Work
George Michaelson — Jan 26, 2016 12:55 PM

Wouldn’t it be nice if turning on IPv6 really was ‘press one button and the rest is magic’ easy?

RIPE Atlas WiFi Measurements - Part 2
RIPE Atlas WiFi Measurements - Part 2
Suzanne Taylor Muzzin — Jan 25, 2016 02:41 PM

A little while ago, we asked what you thought about the idea of conducting WiFi measurements in RIPE Atlas. After some consideration and community feedback, we now want to propose a way to implement this feature in RIPE Atlas and clarify exactly how these measurements will benefit the RIPE Atlas community.

WSIS+10: What Was All The Fuss About?
Chris Buckridge — Jan 11, 2016 02:50 PM

So the WSIS+10 (the United Nations General Assembly’s ten-year review of the World Summit on the Information Society) is done. A process that has been the source of much fretting in Internet governance circles over the past few years has delivered its outcome. And the result? Actually it’s pretty good.
