The objective of RIPE is to ensure the necessary administrative and technical coordination to allow the operation of a pan-European IP network. RIPE does not operate a network of its own. RIPE is the IP activity of RARE. RIPE has been functioning since 1989. Currently more than 60 organisations participate in the work. The result of the RIPE coordination effort is that the individual end-user is presented on his desk-top with a uniform IP service irrespective of the particular network his or her workstation is attached to. Today more than 170.000 computers throughout Europe are reachable via networks coordinated by RIPE. The total number of systems reachable worldwide is estimated at more than 800.000.
