05 August 2015 |


Hurricane Electric has extended its global footprint with the launch of a PoP in Belgrade, Serbia.

Located at Telenor’s Tier 3 data centre at Omladinskih brigade 92 in Belgrade, the PoP is designed to provide customers of the facility with access to Hurricane Electric’s IPv4 and IPv6 network, as well as increased network capacity through 100GE, 10GE and GigE ports.

 “Thanks to the launch of our 28th PoP in Europe, Hurricane Electric is well-positioned to meet the prodigious demand for high quality IP transit throughout the continent,” said Mike Leber, president of Hurricane Electric.

“Whether they’re using IPv4 or IPv6 connections, customers within Telenor Serbia's data centre now have direct access to global networks with lower latency and improved fault tolerance. I am delighted that Hurricane Electric can be a part of the tremendous IP growth in the SEE region.”

The 2,600km2 Telenor Serbia unit is one of the region’s most advanced data centres, connected to multiple national and international networks.

In June this year, Hurricane Electric claimed that it was the first internet backbone in the world to connect to more than 100 different internet exchanges
