We made some adjustments to the RIPE Labs front page so that you can find RIPE NCC operational statistics more easily. At the same time we also improved the look for mobile usage.
If you came to the RIPE Labs website today, you will have noticed that the RIPE Labs Statistics Dashboard has moved from the left margin to the middle of the page. We decided to show these statistics more prominently because they are the most visited pages on the RIPE Labs site, especially statistics related to the number of members and the deployment of IPv6. And more stats will be coming!

Another reason for the update was to make the site more mobile-friendly. Almost 15% of visitors come to RIPE Labs from a mobile device. Before the change, the statistics dashboard basically disappeared when viewed on a mobile device:
In the old view, statistics were difficult to find
In the new version, the statistics are easily accessible on top of the page
Apart from the statistics, we also see interest in the following topics:
- Internet events such as Internet Disruption in Turkey or the Analysis of the Attack on Dyn
- IPv6 related articles such as 6to4 - Why is it so bad? or Evaluating IPv4 and IPv6 Packet Fragmentation
- Operational tools such as ExaBGP and RIPE Atlas updates and use cases
- Articles related to hijacking or security, like the series written by Babak Farrokhi on DNS hijacking
