BGP Table Fragmentation: What & Who?

BGP routing table growth is one of the major Internet scaling issues, and prefix deaggregation is thought to be a major contributor to table growth. In this work we quantify the fragmentation of the routing table by the type of IP prefix. We observe that the proportion of deaggregated prefixes has quasi doubled in the last fifteen years. Our study also shows that the deaggregated prefixes are the least stable; they appear and disappear more frequently.

BBR TCP

The Internet was built using an architectural principle of a simple network and agile edges. The basic approach was to assume that the network is a simple collection of buffered switches and circuits. As packets traverse the network they are effectively passed from switch to switch.

Experiences from the Lecture Hall: RIPE NCC Engages with Universities in the Middle East

The RIPE NCC academic engagement is by far one of the most gratifying and fulfilling initiatives our team in the Middle East office works on. So for we have visited six universities in three countries (Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Oman) and we plan to visit at least two more before the end of this year (Untied Arab Emirates and Qatar).

Using RIPE Atlas to Measure Latency to Reunion Island

Internet connectivity is not fairly distributed around the world, in particular for islands or isolated areas. For instance, connectivity to and from the Reunion Island is mainly based on links to France located about 10,000 km away. This causes long delays and degraded Internet service. In this article, we investigate the performance of the Internet connectivity by analysing delay and path properties from and to La Reunion.
