Researching Next Generation RIS Route Collectors

Wouter Miltenburg — Jul 21, 2014 10:15 AM

It was a graduation project for my bachelor thesis at the HvA (Hogeschool van Amsterdam). This article outlines the possible solutions that we found and examined during the research stage of this project. It also describes a proposal to create a prototype, based on the chosen solution.

Revising the RIPE Database Documentation

Fatemah Mafi — Jul 15, 2014 12:15 PM

The RIPE NCC is currently revising the RIPE Database documentation as requested by the community at recent RIPE Meetings. The goal is to produce one complete and accurate set of documentation that fully describes all aspects of the RIPE Database. The documentation will be a collection of small documents that will be published as soon as they become available. Over the coming months, you can expect to see a steady supply of these new documents. The current documentation will be available until the new set is complete.
