RIPE NCC to Conduct Live Measurements for World IPv6 Day

RIPE NCC has announced plans to conduct live measurements for World IPv6 Day on 8th June 2011. The not-for-profit organization has set to measure connectivity to World IPv6 Day participants; "the IPv6 Eye Chart tests visibility of all World IPv6 Day participants and other sites that are already dual-stacked on a single web page." RIPE NCC says the process will help to find out if there are problems accessing these websites, both before and during World IPv6 Day.

Other measurements include:

• Testing connectivity and performance to World IPv6 Day participants using the RIPE NCC Test Traffic Measurements infrastructure.

• Monitoring performance of the 6to4 transitioning mechanism in comparison to native IPv6 in collaboration with the RIPE Measurement, Analysis and Tools (MAT) Working Group co-Chair, Richard Barnes. More information on each of these measurements, including images and details on how to participate, can be found on RIPE Labs.

"Operational experience and measurements on World IPv6 Day will help content providers and ISPs to identify and rectify any potential problems with delivering services over IPv6," says Daniel Karrenberg, chief scientist, RIPE NCC.

RIPE NCC measurements will be displayed throughout the day at Science Park Amsterdam and in Moscow, as part of the first ever Eurasia Network Operators' Group (ENOG) meeting.
