Founded in 1992, the RIPE NCC is the oldest and largest of the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs).

  • As a not-for-profit membership organisation, it administers Internet number resources to more than 15,000 members in Europe, the Middle East and parts of Central Asia.
  • As an RIR, the RIPE NCC is governed by policies developed by the RIPE community via open, transparent and bottom-up processes.
  • As secretariat for the RIPE community, the RIPE NCC provides neutral platforms for community interaction to develop Internet number policies and to share experience and ideas.

The RIPE NCC also participates in Internet governance discussions, ensuring that the perspective and experience of the RIPE community is included in those discussions.

And the RIPE NCC maintains several technical elements vital to the Internet infrastructure on behalf of the wider Internet community, including the RIPE Database and K-root, one of 13 root name servers. With the support of thousands of community members around the world, the RIPE NCC is also building RIPE Atlas, the largest Internet measurement network ever made.

The Academic and Research Network of Slovenia (ARNES) is a public institute that provides network services to research, educational and cultural organizations, and enables them to establish connections and cooperation with each other and with related organisations abroad.

ARNES builds, maintains and manages infrastructure linking universities, institutes, research laboratories, museums, schools, databases and digital libraries. It offers users the same services as national academic networks in other countries; it cooperates with these networks in European Commission projects to test, develop and introduce new Internet protocols and services. It also provides services that are not offered by commercial organisations, but which are essential to the operation of the Internet in Slovenia.
