About the author

I'm a system architect/research coordinator at the RIPE NCC, where I work in the science group. I'm a chemist by training, but have been working since 1998 on Internet related things, as a sysadmin, security consultant, web developer and researcher. I am interested in technology changes (like IPv6 deployment), Internet measurement, data analysis, data visualisation, sustainability and security. I'd like to bring research and operations closer together, ie. do research that is operationally relevant. When I'm not working I like to make music (electric guitar, bass and drums), do sports (swimming, (inline) skating, bouldering, soccer), and try to be a good parent.

Measuring World IPv6 Launch Participants From All Over The World

Measuring World IPv6 Launch Participants From All Over The World

3 min read

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/ .

IPv4 Address Space Growth per Country

IPv4 Address Space Growth per Country

5 min read

With the depletion of the IPv4 free pool in the APNIC region and the imminent IPv4 free pool run out in the RIPE NCC's service region, it is interesting to look at IPv4 allocation rates per country to see where free pool run out has and will have the most consequences, in terms of curtailing growth…

Interesting Graph - IPv6 per LIR

Interesting Graph - IPv6 per LIR

5 min read

Often when looking at IPv6 deployment statistics, the size of the organisation or the network is not taken into account. In this article, we look at IPv6 deployment of Local Internet Registries (LIRs) per country in correlation with the size of the LIR.

Hampering Eyeballs - Observations on Two "Happy Eyeballs" Implementations

Hampering Eyeballs - Observations on Two "Happy Eyeballs" Implementations

16 min read

In this article we look at two "Happy Eyeballs" implementations, that aim to reduce degraded user experience as the result of broken dual-stack configurations. We call this degraded user experience "Unhappy Eyeballs". The Chrome web browser implementation seems to succeed in this aim, while Apple's…

F-root IPv6 Route Leak - the DNSMON View

F-root IPv6 Route Leak - the DNSMON View

4 min read

This weekend the NANOG mailing list was abuzz about an F-root IPv6 route leak, that resulted in the F-root DNS server instance located in Bejing, China, being queried from outside of China. This normally doesn't happen, as this instance is advertised with the BGP attribute NO_EXPORT, which means it…

Measuring World IPv6 Day - Comparing IPv4 and IPv6 Performance

Measuring World IPv6 Day - Comparing IPv4 and IPv6 Performance

6 min read

During World IPv6 day we measured the performance of IPv4 and IPv6 between 40 vantage points and 46 World IPv6 Day participants and other dual-stacked sites. If one has to pick a winner, then the old protocol, IPv4, would win, but IPv6 often shows comparable or better performance.
