Title: Services to help you understand the behaviour of your network
Speaker: Henk Uijterwaal (RIPE NCC)
Abstract: The RIPE NCC offers a number of services that collect data on the Internet with the goal of helping operators to better understand the behaviour of their network. These services are: Test Traffic Measurements (TTM), a service that measures key performance parameters such as delay, loss, jitter and IP-level routing; Routing Information Service (RIS), aimed at (BGP) inter-provider routing; and DNSMON, a service that monitors the performance of Root and TLD servers. In this talk a brief overview of these services will be given. These services are available to the entire RIPE NCC membership, often at no additional cost. We will also discuss the relation of these services to other activities of the RIPE NCC and show how the entire portfolio of services can be used to your benefit. RIPE NCC staff will be available afterwards to demonstrate these services and discuss possible applications for your specific case.
