Merit IRR transition to RPSL announcement

Merit is pleased to announce that the RADB Internet Routing Registry
database service has begun production use of the next-generation Routing
Policy Specification Language (RPSL). After several weeks of beta trials,
the service is production quality and Merit strongly recommends that users
begin migration to the new database language. The new RPSL database
contains both native RPSL objects, as well as objects mirrored in near
real-time from the RIPE-181 database servers.

RADB users can now query RPSL objects by issuing the following query:

                whois -h

Objects may be submitted by sending mail to:


Users may also use the Web-based GUI interface at:


RPSL RFCs and Internet-Drafts are available through:
