Hurricane Electric to Offer Premium IPv6 Tunnel Broker Service

Hurricane Electric, a leading IPv6-native Internet backbone and colocation provider, introduced its new premium IPv6 tunnel broker service to complement its free and highly popular consumer-grade tunnel broker service.

The new production-grade tunnel broker service is intended for intensive business and enterprise computing environments. Supporting throughput of up to 1 Gbps, the premium service is available via IPv4 and IPv6 and allows both protocols within the dual-stacked tunnel. Customers can provide their own network prefix, or Hurricane Electric can provide one. The service, which will cost $500 per month, requires the use of BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) as the routing protocol.

Hurricane Electric will continue to maintain its popular free tunnel broker service, which caters primarily to the consumer and small-business market.
