RIPE Atlas Probe

Posted by in Technology

It has been several months since my last post, time to add something new, albeit something small!

Today I got a RIPE Atlas probe up and running in Doha, Qatar. The probe is hosted with my parents on Ooredoo (formerly QTel/Qatar Telecom). It’s the only probe running in Qatar, you can see its details here: https://atlas.ripe.net/probes/16596/

RIPE’s explanation of Atlas is:

With your help, the RIPE NCC is building the largest Internet measurement network ever made. RIPE Atlas 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.

Hopefully it will help the wider internet community measure connectivity in Qatar!
