This study, done by Geoff Huston and George Michaelson from the APNIC is looking at the level of background traffic observed in networks 14/8 and 223/8.
Following the recent study on the level of background traffic observed in network 220.127.116.11/8 (see Traffic in Network 18.104.22.168/8 and Pollution in 1/8 ), APNIC has been allocated two further IPv4 address blocks by the IANA, namely 22.214.171.124/8 and 126.96.36.199/8. An experiment has been undertaken with these address blocks by advertising routes to these two address blocks, and recording all incoming traffic received in response to the routing advertisements. The article Traffic in Network 188.8.131.52/8 and 184.108.40.206/8 written by George Michaelson and Geoff Huston reports from this experiment.
