Hurricane Electric Expands in Europe

Hurricane Electric has expanded its network in Europe by connecting to another Internet Exchange point in Amsterdam called NL-ix (Netherlands Internet Exchange), a content oriented Dutch national Internet Exchange.

Hurricane Electric is connected to the NL-ix switch via Gigabit Ethernet. The newly added exchange point will create additional redundancies to Hurricane Electric's Dutch infrastructure and will further improve connectivity in Europe and over its entire network. In addition, Hurricane Electric will have numerous additional peering opportunities throughout Europe.

The new Netherlands connection follows an upgrade to Hurricane Electric's AMS-IX exchange. The once Gigabit Ethernet port was upgraded to a 10 Gigabit Ethernet port just six months after the AMS-IX exchange point was added to Hurricane Electric's global network.
