De-bogonising 2a10::/12 | RIPE

With the RIPE NCC having become the first RIR to receive an additional /12 IPv6 allocation (2a10::/12) from IANA a few months ago, we will soon begin to delegate space from this IPv6 block to LIRs. In preparation for this, in order to improve routability and minimise the risk of filtering, the RIPE NCC will perform several de-bogonising activities in the next few weeks.We plan to start announcing the full /12, as well as a few /32 or longer blocks out of 2a10::/12 from AS12654 (RIPE Routing Information System (RIS)), within the next few days. We will analyse data from RIS and RIPE Atlas and we plan to write up an analysis around this effort.We want to remind everybody to update their bogon filters and allow routes originating from 2a10::/12 in their network.

A short history of TCP vs BBR – Video – Packet Pushers

Geoff Huston, APNIC’s Chief Scientist, breaks down how TCP and BBR work to show the advantages and disadvantages of both.Highlighting that BBR wins because its stamps all over Cubic. Survival of the fittest means that legacy OS with old TCP flow control will be worse off and die quicker. Which is nice.
