Hurricane Electric has expanded its internet routing and access strategy with a new point of presence (PoP) at 910Telecom in Denver, Colorado.

The new PoP, the company’s second location in the city, is situated at 910Telecom’s 142,318 sq ft facility colocation centre at 910 15th Street, Denver, Colorado. The carrier-neutral telecoms hotel, also known as the Denver Gas and Electric Building, is Denver’s nexus for international and national edge enterprises and carrier interconnects.

“Hurricane Electric has an amazing 'fan base’ with a long history of providing high-performance, secure networking accompanied with fanatical support for their customers,” said Eryn Taylor business development director at 910Telecom.

“We are excited to add Hurricane Electric’s direct routed global network to our carrier portfolio."

The PoP will provide high speed IPv4 and IPv6 internet connectivity through Hurricane Electric’s global IP network with 100GE, 10GE and GigE network connections. The connectivity options will provide 910Telecom’s carriers with reduced latency and router hops, as well improved fault tolerance.

“This new PoP strengthens Hurricane Electric’s commitment in Denver market, as well as the entire Rocky Mountain region,” added Walt Wollny, director of interconnection strategy at Hurricane Electric.

“It will provide increased bandwidth along with global network connectivity options for carriers and customers within the 910Telecom Building Meet-Me-Room (MMR).”

According to a recent report, Denver was identified as a top ten market for tech talent in the US, due in part to the growth of its tech labour force, as well as producing a strong number of tech graduates.

The news follows last week’s news that EdgeConneX signed a deal to extend Hurricane Electric’s IP network connectivity across 10 of its markets in its North American footprint.
