I received the RIPE dongle for participating in their project RIPE Atlas network measurement. It will produce a collection of live Internet maps with unprecedented detail. The goal is to deploy thousands of active probes primarily in the RIPE NCC service region and measure the Internet infrastructure in real time. As a sponsor I will help to achieve this ambitious goal, but will also have the possibility of conducting my own measurements using this network of probes. My probe ID is 844 and the graph is visible here.
