Hurricane Electric establishes new PoP in Copenhagen

Hurricane Electric, a colocation provider with a focus on providing IPv6 Internet services, launched a new point-of-presence (PoP) at Interxion's Copenhagen data center as part of its ongoing expansion in the European market.

Mike Leber, president of Hurricane Electric, said in a release that "[t]his new PoP will enable Hurricane Electric to improve fault tolerance, load balancing and congestion management infrastructure capabilities for the delivery of both IPv6 and IPv4 access services."

Offering access via 10GE, GigE and 100BaseT network connections, the PoP will provide connectivity between Interxion customers in Copenhagen and Hurricane Electric's IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

Network expansion has been an ongoing priority for Hurricane Electric. Earlier this month, the service provider established a PoP at Interxion's facility in Madrid.

The company is being no less aggressive in the U.S. market, adding new points of presence in Texas and Minnesota. The service provider said it will launch a fifth data center location in New York at an unnamed data center provider's facility later this week.
