RIPE 72 was held in in Copenhagen, Denmark from 23 to 27 May 2016. Over 670 people attended the five-day event, making it the second largest RIPE meeting ever.
The APNIC Executive Council (EC) held their quarterly face-to-face meeting during the event.
APNIC activities at RIPE 72 included:
- Geoff Huston gave three presentations throughout the week.
- On the first day, he talked about large packets in IPv6 and why one should set the “Don’t Fragment bit” to always ON.
- During the Lightning Talks, he presented his five-month experiment analyzing 44 billion DNS queries, of which one-quarter were junk queries, or as he termed them “DNS Zombies“.
- He also gave a keynote presentation at the Closing Plenary on the state of IPv4 and IPv6, and looked at the effect of NATs on end-to-end connectivity.
- APNIC staff discussed registry and service improvements with RIPE NCC colleagues to share experiences and gauge future collaboration opportunities.
- Following the meeting, APNIC’s EC and RIPE NCC’s Executive Board held a joint meeting where they discussed a range of topics including their respective budgets, activity plans, IANA transition and IANA Service Level Agreement progress, membership growth and trends, outreach activities, community development and future collaboration opportunities.
