RIS Quarterly Planning

We have three objectives in publishing our quarterly planning:

  1. We want to be transparent about the work we are doing
  2. We want your input on that work and our planning, and we want to document that input, and let you know if and when we can add your suggestions to our planning
  3. We want an open dialogue with members and community on developments around RIS

We launched this initiative in Q2 2022, and we are open to improving what we publish here and how we do that. So let us know if there are ways we can better present our plans.

We will update this page as our activities progress and continue to share updates on RIPE Labs, on the RIPE NCC Membership Discussion, MAT Working Group (WG) and RIS Users mailing lists, and at RIPE Meetings and other events.

Q1 2024 Plans

Last Updated: 19 December 2023

Item Activity Description Status
1 Improvements to RIS data through peering coordination

We will work on increasing the number of Route Server feeds.

We also shared information about our new peering strategy on RIPE Labs.

In progress

Work continues from Q2 2022.

2 “External data distribution via kafka” in production

Following the feedback received from the external testers, we will proceed to define a process to get access to kafka directly. Access will be limited to certain organisations that meet specific criteria.

We are now working with our legal team to define processes.

In progress

3 Open source RIS Live

By releasing the RIS Live code as open source, it will be possible for instances of the service to run on infrastructure outside the RIPE NCC. Having a full working instance will require access to the "Public kafka" solution.

We were planning to have this completed by the end of 2023, but this has now moved to Q1 2024.

In progress

4 RIS beacons revamped

We plan to modernise the RIS beaconing so it better captures important features of the current Internet. We plan to make this live in February 2024.

You can find the exact timeline on this announcement and more information about our plans on RIPE Labs.


Items completed in the last quarter

More information can be found on the archived plans page.

Community Input on Planning

We want the community to contribute to our plans and suggest additional work items. Please share your comments with us or post them on the RIPE NCC Membership Discussion, MAT WGand RIS Users mailing lists. And we'll be monitoring all the other channels where people talk about these services.

When we receive feedback that can significantly impact our planning or that needs a further response, we will add it to the table below.
