The Test Traffic Measurement Service (TTM) was shut down on 1 July 2014. This information is available for historical reference.
The Test Traffic Measurement Service (TTM) measures key parameters of the connectivity between your site and other points on the Internet. TTM allows you to comprehensively and continously monitor the connectivity of your network to other parts of the Internet.
TTM uses dedicated measurement devices (test-boxes) that geneate a small amount of traffic. TTM will not put a significant load on your network infrastructure. Also, TTM will not look at any data on your network, ensuring your privacy.
TTM is a full service offering. The test-box measurement devices are operated as a black box by the RIPE NCC staff. Once a test-box is installed, support from the customer's staff is limited to operations requiring physical access to the equipment.
TTM has been proven by more than six years of operational experience. A dedicated team at the RIPE NCC is working full time to continually improve the product and to adapt it to the user's needs. TTM users and other experts can make their future requirements known by participating in the open process of the RIPE Test Traffic Working Group.
The TTM service is available to the entire Internet community, including sites outside the RIPE NCC LIR service area as well as organisations who are not an LIR.
TTM test-boxes consists of a PC and a GPS antenna. They are easy to install, all you need is rack space, a connection to the Internet and a suitable place for the antenna. Test-boxes are pre-configured. All you have to do, is to switch the machine on and measurements will start.
