Internationalisation of Domain Names

Abstract: The presentation is about the standardisation efforts surrounding Internationalized Domain Names (IDN), which is a way to support in the Domain Name System (DNS) character sets other than the English character set.

Domain Management - An introduction to CENTR

Abstract: The presentation will give an overview about the Council of European National Top Level Domain Registries: structure, organization and work. Around 50 ccTLD registries and others are organized in CENTR. What is the goal of CENTR, what are the processes for consensus building and what are the future plans?

K-root Nameserver Operations

The RIPE NCC has operated one of the 13 DNS root servers - k.root-servers.net nameserver since 1997. To improve the regional distribution, resiliency and performance of the root name service provided by the k.root-server, the RIPE NCC have begun an effort to deploy mirror instances of the K-root service throughout its service region using anycast routing. Abstract: The presentation starts with an overview of the root server system and then describes the k.root-servers.net server in more detail. It will focus specifically on the deployment of mirror instances of the server, its current status and future plans.

Registration Services and Updates

Abstract:This presentation will be a report on the services requested by RIPE NCC Members in the Middle East region and a break down of the Internet number resources that have been allocated to them.

IPv6 Update

Abstract: This presentation will provide an overview and detailed statistics of IPv6 allocations in the RIPE NCC service region and specifically the Middle East.

IPv4 Address Lifetime Expectancy

Abstract: In this presentation, Geoff Huston presents the latest results of research and analysis concerning usage of the IPv4 address space within the Internet. Using the history of allocation by the IANA to RIRs and by the RIRs to ISPs, and of address announcements by ISPs into the global routing tables, it is possible to determine projected dates when all available address space will be consumed. These projections indicate a long life for remaining IPv4 address reserves, however it is noted that no attempt is made to predict environmental or technological changes that may alter future consumption rates. This presentation will be made on Geoff Huston's behalf by Paul Wilson, Director General of APNIC.

Routing: How Traffic Flows in the Internet

Abstract: This presentation is an introduction to how routing in the Internet works. It introduces some of the terminologies used, gives an explanation of how devices on the Internet communicate, and describes the constituent parts of the network infrastructure between these devices. The presentation looks at the routing design and operation of individual ISP networks, and how those interconnect to create what we know as the Internet today.

Interconnections on the Internet; Exchange Points

Abstract: This presentation is an introduction to how inter-provider interconnection happens in the Internet, with a particular focus on the history of Internet Exchange Points (IXPs), and an overview of their current status. Models for inter-provider traffic exchange, including peering and transit, are explained. Appropriate technologies and architectures are described, and the various governance and commercial models reviewed.

RIPE NCC Services

Abstract: This presentation gives a detailed overview of RIPE NCC activities including membership services, co-ordination activities and information services.

What is the RIPE NCC?
