Dear colleagues,

The Test-Traffic Project group is pleased to announce that 20 new
test-boxes have been delivered, tested and are ready to be installed at
topologically interesting places around Europe. These test-boxes measure
the delays on the network by sending time-stamped packets to each other.
More information about the Test-Traffic Project can be found on the
home-page of the Test-Traffic Project at 

If you are interested in hosting a test-box, please start by reading the
RIPE documents 168 (version 2.1, February 1999) and 179, which should
contain everything that you need to know about hosting a test-box at your
site. Both documents are available from the Test Traffic project

If your site can meet all requirements, please fill out the application
sheet at  If anything is
unclear or if your site is interested in hosting a test-box but cannot
meet all requirements, do not hesitate to contact us. 

Sites that have already expressed interest in hosting a box will be
contacted in a separate mail. 

It is our goal to distribute the test-boxes amongst topologically
interesting places, while at the same time keeping the location of the
test-boxes manageable from an operational point of view.  Also note that
the number of test-boxes is limited.  This means that we may decide that
we will not install a test-box at your site even though you applied for

There is no deadline for applying.  We plan to review all applications in
the week after the IETF (March 19) and let the interested sites know which
sites will receive a test-box.  Installation of the boxes will start in
the first week of April.  We will continue to accept applications until
all test-boxes have been installed. 

Kind regards,

Henk Uijterwaal

The Committee (...) was unable to reach a consensus that substantial merit was
lacking. Thus, the appeal was deemed meritorious.          (Orlando NABC #19).
