We looked at Internet measurements for the South East Europe (SEE) region in order to share these with attendees at the SEE 4 Meeting that took place from 21-22 April 2015 in Belgrade, Serbia. This is the long version of the lightning talk Vesna Manojlovic gave at SEE 4.

We're getting ready to expand K-root coverage, and we'll soon be inviting interested members of the community to express their interest in hosting their own K-root node. Learn more about how we propose expanding the network, what the requirements are for hosting your own K-root node, and the projected timeline.

Website Redesign Simplifies Policy Proposal Discussions
Website Redesign Simplifies Policy Proposal Discussions
Marco Schmidt — Apr 22, 2015 10:15 AM

When re-designing www.ripe.net, we paid extra attention to how we can improve the interface for the Policy Development Process (PDP). This open and transparent process determines RIPE Policies, which govern the distribution and use of nearly all Internet resources in the RIPE NCC service region. Our aim was to make it easier to review policies and proposals and encourage participation in policy discussions. This post explains these improvements in more detail.

RIPE Atlas Hackathon Results
RIPE Atlas Hackathon Results
Vesna Manojlovic — Apr 10, 2015 09:35 AM

In March 2015, a diverse group of contributors got together to come up with creative ways to visualise the health of the Internet using RIPE Atlas open measurements data. It was the first RIPE Atlas hackathon. Impressive results were hacked together by programmers, designers and operators during an intensive weekend of work and fun in Amsterdam. In this article we celebrate hackathon achievements, document and promote hackathon results, create a memento for participants and report in detail for the benefit of the rest of the community.

This article is the third in a series that explains the main changes we're making to the RIPE NCC website as part of the website redesign project. Now that we're just a few days away from the launch on 13 April, we wanted to give you a sneak peek of the new visual design, and explain some of the back-end changes we made in order to support it.

Andreas Strikos — Mar 30, 2015 03:20 PM

There was a power outage last week in the north of The Netherlands, a country with a very high density of RIPE Atlas probes. This density provides us with some interesting data and visualisation.

In the Middle East three themes are currently being discussed by the Internet community: Advocacy, policy and technology. The aim is to strengthen participation on Internet policies, Internet governance, security and privacy, freedom of expression and rights on the Internet.

Measuring Countries and IXPs with RIPE Atlas
Measuring Countries and IXPs with RIPE Atlas

We've been working with various Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) over the last few months to see how RIPE Atlas active measurements can provide insight into how they are keeping local traffic local. This could help improve performance and efficiency for IXPs and their members. To explore this, we've created a set of Python scripts to analyse Internet traffic paths between RIPE Atlas probes in a given country and try to identify whether they traverse IXPs.
