Hurricane Electric Scales its IPv6 Backbone with Brocade

Hurricane Electric now claims to operate the largest IPv6 Internet backbone in the world, measured by the number of networks connected. As of January 2011, the company had 1,200 IPv6 networks connected to its IPv6 backbone.

Brocade supplies IPv6-enabled switches and routers in Hurricane Electric's geographically distributed network. Specifically, Hurricane Electric has deployed the Brocade NetIron XMR Internet core router and Brocade MLXe core routers to future-proof its global network and multiple data centers, including its 200,000 square foot colocation facility in Fremont, California.http://www.brocade.com http://www.he.net
