Hurricane Electric Interconnects with 400+ IPv6 Networks

Hurricane Electric, which provides colocation and IPv6 Internet backbone services, announced that its network now connects with over 400 IPv6 networks. The company said it has quickly surpassed its Q3 2008 IPv6 peering milestone, increasing its number of connected networks by 33%.

"It's only a matter of time before IPv4 address space runs out completely," said Mike Leber, president of Hurricane Electric. "We're doing our part to ensure the smooth transition to the inevitable IPv6 Internet."

In addition to their network growth, Hurricane Electric is known for its services to the industry. IPv6 Self Certification and the free IPv6 tunnel broker service, located at http://tunnelbroker.net, allow network engineers, system administrators, and end users to participate in the future of the Internet.
