Tony Smith from APNIC is looking at the increase in IPv6 deployment now ARIN depleted their free pool of IPv4 addresses.

RIPE Atlas Time Travel Is Here
RIPE Atlas Time Travel Is Here
Suzanne Taylor Muzzin — Sep 25, 2015 10:01 AM

RIPE Atlas users can now travel back in time to access all of the historical data collected by RIPE Atlas. This data is now visualised with the new "time travel" feature, available for both Internet maps and measurement results. Here we explain how to make the most of this new feature to visualise changes to infrastructure, interesting network events and more.

New RIPE Atlas Tool: LatencyMON
Massimo Candela — Sep 23, 2015 10:10 AM

LatencyMON is a new RIPE Atlas web application that you can use to easily visualise and compare multiple latency trends collected by groups of RIPE Atlas probes.

Mapping the Internet Infrastructure in Serbia
Mapping the Internet Infrastructure in Serbia
Andrej Petrovski — Sep 22, 2015 12:30 PM

Through empirical research, SHARE Foundation created a map of the Internet in Serbia and analysed the implications network structure could have on Internet filtering. By visualising and analysing the structure and topology of individual Internet Service Providers in Serbia, we tried to determine how easy it would be to install filtering devices on these networks. This data was used to inform the government on the proposal of a new law. In addition, the output of this research can be used for different qualitative measurements of the network, such as bandwidth, IPv6 penetration and Internet throttling.

If you monitor your external Internet connectivity, you may wonder which machine is the best to ping. Hesitate no more - you can use RIPE Atlas anchors as landmarks.

Has the Routability of Longer-than-/24 Prefixes Changed?
Has the Routability of Longer-than-/24 Prefixes Changed?
Emile Aben — Sep 11, 2015 03:15 PM

In October 2014 we started announcing a few longer-than-/24 prefixes and determined they were not very visible according to the Routing Information Service (RIS) and RIPE Atlas measurements. Now, almost a year later, we revisit this.

The Internet in North Korea - Hanging by a Single Thread?
The Internet in North Korea - Hanging by a Single Thread?
Emile Aben — Aug 26, 2015 11:50 AM

North Korea is one of the most secluded countries in the world, but it is nonetheless connected to the Internet. We investigate North Korea's Internet connectivity in light of recent outages and discuss the fragile nature of its setup.

Is It Really Worth Peering at IXPs? A Comparative Study
Is It Really Worth Peering at IXPs? A Comparative Study
roberto di lallo — Aug 03, 2015 11:50 AM

We investigated the role IXPs play in the Italian Internet ecosystem. Do peerings at IXPs have a positive effect on key performance indicators such as latency, hop count, packet loss and jitter? Do they reduce the number of out-of-country ISPs traversed by traffic between users located in Italy and critical Internet services like banks and public administrations?
