We collect a wide range of data about the Internet including IP addresses, network prefixes, BGP and routing data. Our data can be accessed using our suite of Internet measurement tools.
RIPE Atlas can be used to monitor network visibility from thousands of vantage points around the globe, investigate and troubleshoot network issues, check the responsiveness of DNS infrastructure, check IPv6 connectivity, and much more. Learn how network operators, researchers and regular users have benefitted from RIPE Atlas.

RIS Live is a feed that offers BGP messages in real-time. It collects information from the RIS Route Collectors (RRCs) and uses a WebSocket JSON API to monitor and detect routing events around the world. A non-interactive full stream ("firehose") is also available.RIS Live
DNS Monitoring Service (DNSMON) is an active measurement service that provides a comprehensive, objective and up-to-date overview of the quality of the service offered by high-level Domain Name System (DNS) servers.DNSMON
The IXP Country Jedi provides visualisations of Internet traffic paths (traceroutes) between RIPE Atlas probes located in the same country to answer the following questions: Do the target paths take out-of-country detours? Do we see IXPs in the paths?IXP Country Jedi (Alpha)
Get comprehensive insights into Internet measurements and performance data with interactive maps showing DNS root instances, root server performance, RTT to fixed destinations, comparative DNS root RTT and reachability.Internet Traffic Maps
RIPE Atlas has grown to become the world’s largest active Internet measurement system thanks to its vibrant community of users and probe and anchor hosts. The more probes we can get up and running in networks across the world, the better it is for everyone using RIPE Atlas and the Internet as a whole!
The RIPE NCC operates two independent DNS services. Both of these are provided by distributed nodes using IPv4 and IPv6 anycast.
The first service is K-root, one of the 13 Internet root name servers.
The second is Authoritative DNS (AuthDNS), which hosts reverse DNS zones, ripe.net, e164.arpa and some other infrastructure zones, and provides secondary DNS for various ccTLDs.
