In this article we describe the IPv6 Matrix, a project tracking IPv6 Worldwide. It is especially interesting to see how World IPv6 Launch on 4 June 2012 has helped IPv6 deployment in certain countries.
Now we have reached the last /8 of IPv4 addresses, we have looked at the allocation and assignment rate again. At the same time we also monitored the growth in IPv6 allocations.
This page contains a list of statistics the RIPE NCC provides on a regular basis, together with a short description and pointers to more information.
RIPE NCC members can browse RIPE database objects with history in RIPEstat for a couple of weeks as a demonstration. Please check it out and let us know what you think.
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.
In addition to the existing global and local instances of K-root, we propose member instances of K-root. This article describes the benefits and how this will be implemented during the pilot phase.
Following on from the European Championship earlier this year, we looked at changes in Internet traffic volume at Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) during the Olympics. This is a joint project with Euro-IX.
Bringing high-quality independent measurements to your network!
RIPE Atlas has two new types of customised measurements: DNS and SSL certificates, and a new interface for user-defined measurements (UDM).
The RIPE NCC will shortly reach a point where we have approximately one month's worth of IPv4 address space (approximately /10) to distribute before we reach the last /8. Once we reach this point, several adjustments will be made to our standard procedures, so the RIPE NCC decided to do a "dry run" to ensure that the process we designed works properly and provide an opportunity to iron out any flaws.
