AFRINIC and the RIPE NCC are pleased to announce the installation of a RIPE Atlas anchor on AFRINIC's infrastructure in Mauritius. The installation is part of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two RIRs to increase collaborative efforts in the promotion of Internet development throughout their respective regions.
The RIPE Atlas project is a global network of probes that measure Internet connectivity and reachability, providing an unprecedented understanding of the state of the Internet in real time. The data collected by the AFRINIC-hosted anchor, mu-plu-as32768, together with the project's other anchors and probes, is made available to anyone and provides valuable information about the local and regional connectivity and reachability of the Internet.
