Hurricane Electric Now Connecting 2,000 IPv6 Backbones

Silicon Valley-based Hurricane Electric is the first Internet backbone to connect to over 2,000 IPv6 networks, doubling in less than three years.

Having first deployed IPv6 in 2001, Hurricane Electric offers IPv6 as a core service; every customer is provided IPv6 connectivity as well as classic IPv4 connectivity. Hurricane Electric also provides tunnel broker and DNS services, plus a free IPv6 certification program.

"Our early investment in IPv6 is paying off not only for Hurricane Electric, but also for our customers around the world," said Mike Leber, President of Hurricane Electric. "Given the depletion of the IPv4 address space, we expect continued strong growth in demand for IPv6 connectivity and services."

Hurricane Electric has no less than four redundant paths crossing North America, two separate paths between the U.S. and Europe, and rings in Europe and Asia.
