Hurricane Electric is the first internet backbone in the world to connect to over 200 unique internet exchanges.
As an early leader in the switch to IPv6, Hurricane Electric now connects to the largest number of networks on the planet for both IPv6 and IPv4 and has been at the forefront of providing high-speed internet connectivity to organizations throughout the world using: 100GE, 10GE and GigE connections.
As a result of the improved connectivity with these 200 exchanges, customers receive the benefit of lower latency, higher throughput and increased fault tolerance.
This reliable connectivity is especially important as global IP traffic continues to increase. Cisco’s Visual Networking Index: Forecast and Trends, 2017–2022 predicts that annual global IP traffic will reach 4.8 zettabytes (ZB) per year by 2022, or 396 exabytes (EB) per month, triple the 2017 rate.
