Dear Customers, We are closely monitoring the development of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Below you can find an update on the quickly evolving situation which may affect our operations and might cause unforeseen delays for our customers.

Certain areas within the Netherlands are affected by the outbreak and we as NFOrce are forced to take precautions and implement safety measures. Unfortunately, this might cause delays which are caused by a limited active work force and other restrictions. We as NFOrce will still strive to minimize the delays as much as possible. We hope we can count on your understanding for the situation which is affecting the world.

We hope you all stay safe and take care.


Ripe Atlas (sponsor) anchor upgrade

Posted on 2018-07-19

NFOrce Internet Services has upgraded their RIPE Atlas anchor with brand new hardware. We upgraded from v.2 to v.3, which effectively means even more accurate, faster and reliable measurements.

What are RIPE Atlas anchors?
RIPE Atlas anchors are both enhanced RIPE Atlas probes with more measurement capacity, as well as regional measurement targets within the greater RIPE Atlas network.

Anchors provide valuable information about local and regional connectivity, both for those hosting a RIPE Atlas anchor and for the entire Internet community. In most cases, it is not necessary to send a ping or traceroute around the entire globe in order to identify problems in local connectivity – investigating regional connectivity is usually sufficient.

In addition to performing more measurements themselves, RIPE Atlas anchors also act as well-known and co-operating targets for user-defined measurements set up by probe hosts throughout the RIPE Atlas network, and are located at hosts with sufficient bandwidth to support this larger number of incoming measurements.
