  • Abstract: APNIC has the aim of providing meaningful information services to the communities it serves. In the context of network operations, we want to offer you with tools that will help you make better informed network decisions, solve routing issues and deal with potentially malware infected devices. Our approach is to listen and learn about your most common issues so we can work together to find solutions that meet your needs. This presentation will include an update on two services APNIC offers to network operators: NetOX and DASH:
    • NetOX (Network Operators' toolboX) is a set of tools for network operators to analyse their (and other) networks to solve routing issues and make better informed network decisions.
    • DASH (Dashbaord for Autonomous System Health) is a portal for APNIC users who manage prefixes delegated by APNIC, that offers information about suspicious traffic seen coming from the user's networks.
    The presentation will also include some opportunities for members of the community to have a say on how APNIC develops products and services for them.
