This is an abbreviated version of a talk I gave at the Africa Internet Summit 2017.

In this blog post I want to show you how you can use RIPE Atlas to get a grip on interesting phenomena in the African Internet, even though RIPE Atlas doesn’t have that many probes in most African countries. I will show the use of a new RIPE Atlas tool called traceMON.

As part of the memorandum of understanding that exists between AFRINIC and Research ICT Africa (RIA), AFRINIC Research and Innovation department will participate in a research project under the Regional Academic Network on IT Policy (RANITP), which is being led by UCT Graduate School of Development Policy and Practice (UCT GSDPP) and Research ICT Africa (RIA).  The project aims at promoting high level multidisciplinary research on ICT policy across the African continent, and the current phase is focussed on providing the necessary evidence to inform policy processes on the implementation of cloud computing services in the public sector. For this purpose, I attended a full day workshop in Nairobi Kenya, on 31 May 2017 to participate in the research design process.  The other institutions also involved in the project include Lagos Business School, University of Nairobi, University of Zambia, and University of Ghana Business School.
