Hurricane Electric Continues European Expansion

Hurricane Electric, which operates what is considered to be the world’s largest IPv6-native Internet backbone, has added a new Point of Presence (PoP) at Interxion Dusseldorf in Germany.

Hurricane Electric said it is continuing to grow its footprint within Germany’s extensive data center industry. This is its sixth POP in Germany. The PoP will enable customers to experience improved fault tolerance, lower latency and increased network capacity through 100GE (100 Gigabit Ethernet), 10GE (10 gigabit Ethernet), GigE (1 gigabit Ethernet) and 100BaseT network connections. Additionally, customers will now have the opportunity to exchange IP traffic, or “peer,” with Hurricane Electric’s global network.

Hurricane Electric employs a resilient fiber-optic topology, and has four redundant paths crossing North America, two separate paths between the U.S. and Europe, and rings in Europe and Asia.
