Hurricane Electric establishes three new global PoPs

Hurricane Electric, a native IPv6 Internet backbone and colocation provider, is on the growth path again.

Now the service provider has built three new points of presence at Comfluent in Denver, Colo.; Equinix Singapore and The Northwest Access Exchange (NWAX) in Portland, Ore. 

Confluent and Equinix Singapore customers will now be exchange or "peer" directly with Hurricane Electric's Internet backbone.

Through its NWAX connection in Portland, Hurricane Electric said it will reduce latency and router hops for customers with Northwest connection needs. Oregon has become another growth spot for the service provider, having recently announced that it built a new PoP at The Pittock Building in Portland.
