What Can You Do with One Million RIPE Atlas Credits?

RIPE Atlas lets you make customised measurements from thousands of probes around the world.

Find out how you can best spend your credits to check your services' connectivity and troubleshoot potential issues.

What Do Network Operators Sell to Each Other?

Comparisons rarely work. They never fit properly; they almost always lead away from the topic. And the audience‘s attention is lost in unimportant details. Therefore, writers do themselves few favours when they use comparisons as stylistic tools. I once read that in a book about speech writing (Franz, 2015). But there is one exception: the remote comparison. The further away the object of comparison, the better. The remote comparison is intended to show how absurd a situation is. The market at the core of the Internet is like a movie without a title.

Detecting IXPs in Traceroute Paths Using traIXroute

traIXroute is a tool that detects whether and where a traceroute path crosses an Internet Exchange Point (IXP). It uses data from multiple sources and advanced criteria to verify IXP crossings to deal with problems due to replies from third-party interfaces or inaccuracies in the available data about IP addresses assigned to IXPs. These problems can mislead simple heuristics, based solely on the IP address prefixes allocated to IXPs, for the inference of IXP crossings.
