Measurements and Statistics
Mobile networks have become ubiquitous, offering connectivity performance from slow connections up to speeds comparable with broadband connections. Having tools to emulate such variability correctly is paramount to test new protocols and applications before publicly releasing them.
How much of a problem are large DNS responses over UDP in the wild?
As part of our ongoing efforts to chart the rise and rise of IPv6, we’ve been looking into the difference between average IPv6 capability per country over a few days in June 2020 versus the most recent similar averages for 2021.
The new RIPEstat UI brings big changes to the look and feel of RIPEstat. It presents an updated, clean, responsive design built on a modern framework and comes equipped with a whole host of new features. In this article, we explore all these features and improvements.
The NetForecast 2020 Internet Latency Benchmark Report scores and ranks Internet latency performance across major US cities and ISPs. Drawing on RIPE Atlas, the report provides a “user's eye” perspective on performance in terms of latency, latency consistency, and near/far latency bias.
We've been using Google's BigQuery platform for ongoing operational tasks and research questions, and we've got a little more experience under our belts. We're improving the ways we expose public data on the platform.
One of the tasks of the R&D team here at the RIPE NCC is to come up with, evaluate, and execute new ideas for research topics and tools that can be of good use to the community. In this article, we're starting an experiment to expose some of these ideas to the community, in order to find interested…
In our cloud reachability study, we performed extensive global client-to-cloud latency measurements towards 189 datacenters from nine major cloud providers using 8,000+ RIPE Atlas probes. Our goal was to evaluate the suitability of modern cloud environments for latency-sensitive applications. Here,…
Since its inception, RIPEstat has been helping network operators and end users monitor the state of the Internet. Ten years on, we look back at some of the ways RIPEstat enabled us to get a clearer picture of how the Internet fared in the event of outages, blackouts, natural disasters, and Nyan Cat.
