At RIPE 67 we presented our ideas on infrastructure geolocation. We received positive feedback for developing this idea. This article shows the current thinking on how to develop router geolocation further. Any feedback will be appreciated.

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.

As one of the strongest typhoons on record, Haiyan is feared to have a devastating effect on the Philippines. We looked for evidence of its effects on the country's core Internet infrastructure. At first glance, the typhoon's impact on core Internet infrastructure appears to be modest. This is in …
This new RIPE Labs article talks about trying to send large packets over the Internet. Above a certain size, these packets will have to be fragmented, which is known to cause problems. In both IPv4 and IPv6, we see approximately 10% of RIPE Atlas probes that are unsuccessful in pings with fragmente…
In this article we present the first publicly available beta version of the fifth IPv6 RIPEness star. This measures real IPv6 deployment from LIRs in the RIPE NCC service region. The methodology is what we think to be the best compromise yet between simple and fair. In this first version, 573 LIRs …
We regularly check the status of IPv6 deployment in the RIPE NCC service region, but also in other regions. One way to measure IPv6 deployment is to look at the percentage of networks (Autonomous Systems) announcing IPv6 prefixes and to follow the developments over time.
After causing lots of damage in the Caribbean, superstorm Sandy is having a devastating effect on the US East Coast. We looked at the RIPE Atlas network to find out what effects this superstorm has on the Internet. Below are some preliminary results of what we saw.
We did some measurements on the round-trip (RT) values of DNS queries for SOA (Start of Authority) records from our RIPE Atlas probes, over both UDP and TCP. We plotted the TCP/UDP ratios on graphs, and found that, as expected, for the majority of the measurements, it is around 2. However, we also …
Following on from the European Championship earlier this year, we looked at changes in Internet traffic volume at Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) during the Olympics. This is a joint project with Euro-IX.
Olympic fever didn't escape us here at the RIPE NCC!
As part of our Data Repository, the RIPE NCC has released a new dataset. This dataset contains DNS lookups (A+AAAA), ping/ping6, traceroute/traceroute6 and HTTP fetches (IPv4/IPv6) from 53 vantage points (TTM, CAIDA Ark and others) to 60 websites involved in World IPv6 Launch. The data covers the p…
This is the last in a series of articles in which we look at traffic statistics at Internet Exchange Points during the European Championship 2012. This time we looked at IXP traffic during the semi-finals and the final. In addition we also look back over the entire 5 weeks of matches and draw some …
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.
In this article we show some interesting traffic graphs seen at IXPs during the first round of matches.
