Part of our ‘Three of the best’ series, highlighting our most popular posts from 2015 on themes important to our community.

APNIC signed an memorandum of understanding with RIPE NCC, in June 2014, to support the deployment of Atlas Anchors in the Asia Pacific.

The Atlas project employs a global network of probes that measure Internet connectivity and reachability, providing an unprecedented understanding of the state of the Internet in real time.

Below are three of our more popular posts on the RIPE Atlas project and how it benefits the Asia Pacific region:

  1. Checking your Internet connectivity with RIPE Atlas Anchors – learn how to use RIPE Atlas Anchors as landmarks when you monitor your external Internet connectivity.
  2. New anchor to measure the edge of the Internet – what does the edge of the Internet look like? A new APNIC sponsored RIPE Atlas Anchor hosted in the Maldives will provide some clues.
  3. Powering up collaboration – George Michaelson compares RIPE Atlas deployment against user population estimates provided by APNIC.
