Update on AS Path Lengths Over Time
Update on AS Path Lengths Over Time

One way to determine the denseness of the Internet, or its “interconnectedness”, is to look at the path length between Autonomous Systems (ASes). A while ago we looked at that and also at differences between IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Has this changed in the meantime? See our findings below.

RIPE NCC Registration Services "Dry Run" For Last /10 Procedures
RIPE NCC Registration Services "Dry Run" For Last /10 Procedures
