Following the first announcement of the active measurement network we are planning to set up, you can find a short description below of the equipment we are planning to use for all vantage points.
This graph shows IPv6 performance as measured to www.ripe.net. These measurements show performance of native IPv6 on average being very close to IPv4.
Over the last few months, since the last release of our RESTful Query Web Service, we have been adding functionality and fixed some issues that we found while using the underlying API. So, with this update we are releasing all these refinements and fixes to you. Most of the improvements address parsing complexities of the RPSL format.
Resource certification can be used to help secure routing. The resource certification system is based on Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) principles. The RIPE NCC Validator for resource certification can help network operators make the necessary routing decisions. You can download the tool below.
We recently posted an article about IPv6 "RIPEness", a four-star rating system of Local Internet Registry (LIR) IPv6 deployment.
This is the first in a series of articles in which we will describe our plan to set up a new measurement network and how we plan to master the engineering, economic and community-building challenges.
The graph shows the number of IPv6 allocations made by the RIPE NCC to its membership since 1999.
Serge Radovcic from the European Internet Exchange Association (Euro-IX) examined the effect that the FIFA World Cup 2010 had on IXP traffic statistics in Europe during the tournament.
The RIPE NCC has trained thousands of Local Internet Registries for more than 15 years. Please find some more details in this article.
The RIPE NCC has launched the RIPE Data Repository, a ‘portal’ that hosts a collection of data sets useful for scientific and operational Internet research. The repository can hold up to 100TB of diverse sets of data, some going back as far as 1993.
