The RIPE NCC has been assigning 32-bit Autonomous System Numbers since 2007. In this article we're providing an update about the number of 32-bit ASNs being assigned and how many are visible on the Internet.
RIPE Atlas was used to perform IPv6 reachability testing before and during the World IPv6 Launch. One success story and the usage statistics lead us to the conclusion that this feature needs to remain available even after the "launch" is over.
This is the fourth in a series of articles in which we look at traffic statistics at Internet Exchange Points during the European Championship currently taking place. This time we looked at IXP traffic during the quarter-finals.
Some years ago a report was published that ranked countries by the level of penetration of broadband data services. This ranking of national economies had an electrifying impact on this industry and upon public policies for broadband infrastructure in many countries. What if we did the same for IPv6? Would measuring each country's success or otherwise in deploying IPv6 act as a further incentive for IPv6?
In the process of revising the International Telecommunications Regulations, it has been suggested to base a new IP interconnection framework on the concept of end-to-end Quality of Service. This raises a question in my head: How "real" is end-to-end Quality of Service in the Internet?
Or: Some Further Reflections on revising the International Telecommunications Regulations
Following on from last year's during World IPv6 Day, we again looked at relative performance of IPv4 and IPv6 from the measurements we conducted. In this article we describe the methodology and the show the results of these measurements.
This is the third in a series of articles in which we look at traffic statistics at Internet Exchange Points during the European Championship currently taking place.
The RIPE NCC is proposing to deprecate DBConstat, a service to check consistency of data in the RIPE Database and produce statistics. It was written over ten years ago and has changed little over that period.
Last week there were several problems with the RIPE NCC's reverse DNS (rDNS) service. This article is a first report about the events. It is not intended to analyse the causes or make detailed recommendations for action.
