Hurricane Electric has added a new Point of Presence (PoP) at H5 Data Centers’ purpose-built campus in the Denver Tech Center.

The announcement means Hurricane Electric, the world’s largest IPv6-native Internet backbone, now has six PoPs with H5 Data Centers in the US, adding to locations in Albuquerque, Atlanta, Cleveland, San Antonio, and Seattle.

Beyond the US, Hurricane has also recently announced PoPs at GTT Halifax in Canada and NEXTDC’s S1 Sydney data centre.

"We’re excited to expand our relationship with H5 Data Centers, and we look forward to offering Denver enterprises and content companies additional cost-effective connectivity options,” said Mike Leber, president of Hurricane Electric. "This new PoP reflects Hurricane Electric’s commitment to Denver’s burgeoning tech market by meeting the demands for increased bandwidth and connectivity options.”

The tier III Denver campus (pictured) covers 300,000 square feet and provides access to the IX-Denver Internet exchange.


It means H5’s Colorado-based customers can now access Hurricane Electric's extensive IPv4 and IPv6 network through 100GE (100 Gigabit Ethernet), 10GE and GigE ports. They can also now exchange IP traffic with Hurricane Electric's vast global network, which offers over 20,000 BGP sessions with over 8,000 different networks via more than 250 major exchange points and thousands of customers and private peering ports.

“After completing over $30 million of renovations and infrastructure upgrades, the expansion of Hurricane Electric offers an excellent opportunity for our customers to diversify their network options and reduce latency,” said Josh Simms, founder and CEO of H5 Data Centers.
