Internet Measurements

RIPE Atlas is our main Internet data collection system. It is a global network of probes that measure Internet connectivity and reachability, providing an unprecedented understanding of the state of the Internet in real time. Users can access this data via Internet traffic maps, streaming data visualisations, and an API.

Anchors are both enhanced RIPE Atlas probes with more measurement capacity, as well as regional measurement targets within the greater RIPE Atlas network. Anchors also form the backbone for the DNSMON measurement system.


We also collect and store Internet routing data from several locations around the globe, using the Routing Information Service (RIS). This data is available via RIPEstat.
