Euro 2012 takes place in Poland and Ukraine from 8 June, so we are teaming up with Euro-IX (The European Internet Exchange Point Association) to look at Internet Exchange Point (IXP) traffic during the tournament.
RIPEstat widgets - which can be embedded in any web page - can now be configured to allow your site's visitors to query resources.
In anticipation of reaching the last /8 of IPv4 addresses in the RIPE NCC service region, we have been looking at the number of IPv4 addresses the RIPE NCC handed out over the last four years. The curves look surprisingly uniform.
Similar to last years World IPv6 Day, this year, the RIPE NCC is measuring selected World IPv6 Launch participants from over 50 vantage points all over the world. We're measuring DNS, ping, traceroute and HTTP and show results at http://ipv6launch.ripe.net/ .
RIPEstat has a new DNS widget for World IPv6 Launch. The widget can be included in any website where you'd like viewers to be able to perform IPv6 (and IPv4) DNS lookups or view your site's DNS details.

At the recent RIPE Meeting we presented some IPv6 address distribution statistics which we would like to share with a wider audience. In the article below, you can find statistics on IPv6 allocations and assignments. In particular, the article details what affect the removal of the requirement to be multihomed had on the number of assignments and the relationship between the age of an LIR and the number of IPv6 addresses they have received.
The new Address Space Hierarchy widget allows you to see how address space is used. It shows how a particular prefix fits within a less specific block, and the more specific prefixes which fit within it. In this article we look at the widget in more depth.
