EdgeConneX, the pioneer in edge data center development, has entered an agreement with Hurricane Electric, operator of the world’s largest IPv6-native internet backbone and the most interconnected IPv4 global network, to provide expanded bandwidth and direct connectivity to customers in ten markets.
The deployments will include Santa Clara, Seattle, Atlanta, Toronto, Nashville, Detroit, Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City and Las Vegas with additional connectivity options, including 100GbE, 10GbE and GigE ports and access to Hurricane Electric’s extensive IPv6 and IPv4 network.
“EdgeConneX empowers its customers to do more – to provide the most proximate offerings and in turn, the best possible service and support to their end-users,” comments Brian Bellis, Vice President of Network Sales and Ecosystem Development at EdgeConneX. “Hurricane Electric now brings access to industry-leading connectivity options right to our customers’ front door, right to their Edge.”
The agreement will enable EdgeConneX to deliver on its promise of bringing the benefits of a local network and edge data center services to their customers. Content, cloud and enterprise customers in those markets will experience reduced latency and improved traffic flow and efficiency for end-users dependent on the Internet. Other benefits include higher availability, updated technology, improved customer and tech support and enhanced management and reporting, among others.
