As 2017 draws to a close, the APNIC Blog will feature a series called ‘Three of the best’, highlighting the most popular posts from the past 12 months.
The Internet technical community of the Asia Pacific, and further afield, have made an incredible contribution to the APNIC Blog in 2017, with over 91 guest bloggers contributing over 120 posts.
Below are three of the most popular guest blog posts in 2017.
- Why is the Internet so slow?! — Ilker Nadi Bozkurt discusses the results of his team’s research that shows that the Internet is much, much slower than it could be: fetching just the HTML of the landing pages of popular websites is (in the median) ~37 times worse than c-latency.
- Internet protocols are changing — Learn about the significant recent changes being made to the core Internet protocols in this informative post by Mark Nottingham.
- China’s first IPv6-only backbone network to connect a further 1,200 campuses — CERNET’s, Xing Li, discusses current plans that are underway to expand CERNET2, with IVI used as the core translation technology between IPv6 and IPv4.
