New York and Fremont, Calif - July 17, 2013 - Hurricane Electric, the world’s largest IPv6-native Internet backbone and a leading colocation provider, today announced its fifth Point-of-Presence (PoP) in New York at Telx’s data center located at 111 8th Avenue, New York, NY.
The new PoP will provide high speed IPv4 and IPv6 Internet connectivity through Hurricane Electric’s global IP network with 100GE (100 gigabit Ethernet), 10GE (10 gigabit Ethernet), GigE (1 gigabit Ethernet) and 100Base-T network connections. The connectivity options will provide Telx customers with reduced latency and router hops, as well improved fault tolerance.
“Hurricane Electric is thrilled to complete its fifth PoP in New York and continue its longstanding partnership with Telx,” said Mike Leber, President, Hurricane Electric. “This new PoP strengthens Hurricane Electric’s commitment to New York and the entire Tri-State area, and will provide increased bandwidth and global network connectivity options for customers in in Telx’s 111 8th Ave data center.”
In addition to this new location, Hurricane Electric also has a presence at Telehouse and Equinix facilities in New York.
Hurricane Electric first deployed IPv6 on its global backbone in 2001. Hurricane Electric’s global Internet backbone is one of the few that is IPv6-native and does not rely on internal tunnels for its IPv6 connectivity. IPv6 is offered as a core service and every customer is provided IPv6 connectivity, as well as classic IPv4 connectivity.
