The RIPE NCC's New Look
Miguel Bastos — Nov 02, 2015 09:50 AM

We're pleased to announce a fresh new look for the RIPE NCC that better reflects who we are and what we do. Learn more about why we made the change and what the design process involved from the RIPE NCC's graphic designer, Miguel Bastos. We hope you'll like what you see!

We look at the RIPE NCC in terms of growth, geographic distribution and IPv6 deployment. We find that recent RIPE policy changes have had an impact on membership statistics and development trends.

Researching F-root Anycast Placement Using RIPE Atlas
Researching F-root Anycast Placement Using RIPE Atlas
Ray Bellis — Oct 14, 2015 02:20 PM

In order to expand the reach of F-root, one of the 13 root servers, we at ISC looked at where queries to our F-root servers are coming from and where it would make most sense to place new nodes. As a first step, we looked at the existing nodes to see how they behave and if there is anything we can improve. We used RIPE Atlas to do this.

Updates to the RIPE NCC Routing Information Service
Updates to the RIPE NCC Routing Information Service
Colin Petrie — Oct 12, 2015 03:55 PM

We've made some extensive improvements to the RIPE NCC Routing Information Service (RIS) which is an integral part of RIPEstat and heavily used by researchers and network operators. More changes will come and we need your feedback! Please note the questions at the end of this article.

IPv4 in the RIPE NCC Service Region - Three Years After Reaching the Last /8
IPv4 in the RIPE NCC Service Region - Three Years After Reaching the Last /8
Rene Wilhelm — Oct 08, 2015 09:40 AM

In September 2012 the RIPE NCC reached its last /8 of available IPv4 addresses. This activated a new phase in the RIPE IPv4 policies, with each LIR now eligible to receive one final /22 allocation. In this article we look at developments in IPv4 allocations and remaining addresses at the RIPE NCC in the three years since then.

Real-time BGP Monitoring with Isolario and BGPlay
Real-time BGP Monitoring with Isolario and BGPlay
Alessandro Improta — Oct 05, 2015 04:10 PM

The Isolario project introduces a new concept of Route Collectors to devise real-time services and attract new BGP data sources. Thanks to the integration of BGPlay, the project provides new interesting troubleshooting tools to monitor BGP routes in real-time.

A Tale of BGP Collectors and Customer Cones
Emile Aben — Oct 05, 2015 11:50 AM

When operators and researchers use data from BGP route collectors such as RIS and Route Views, it's not easy to tell if a path announced to a collector is an ISP's customer cone, an internal route, or one learned from peering or transit. In this post we look at what information we can currently get from BGP communities in RIS.

Iran and K-root: The Rest of the Story
Iran and K-root: The Rest of the Story
Emile Aben — Sep 30, 2015 04:45 PM

Dyn Research published an article on K-root recently. Here we would like to augment the picture with data from RIPE Atlas in order to provide a more complete picture of the effect of the K-root node in Iran.
