Zayo establishes IPv6 network pact with Hurricane Electric

Zayo's new partnership with Hurricane Electric for IPv6 connectivity will add another service to the competitive provider's growing service holster and is an example of the cooperative environment emerging between colocation providers and fiber service providers.

This partnership has benefits for both Zayo and Hurricane Electric alike.

Known as a wholesale fiber and network capacity provider, the addition of IPv6 services to its portfolio is another element it can take to both its business and wholesale carrier customers who are grappling with how to create their own IPv4 to IPv6 addressing migration strategy over its dense fiber network.

Likewise, Hurricane Electric will be able to provide its customers with Zayo's 100Mbps, 1 Gig and 10 Gig Ethernet services through the Phoenix NAP Data Center.

Arizona is just one stop on this partnership train. The two service providers plan to establish similar partnerships in other markets where Zayo provides on-net services including Seattle, Ashburn, Dallas, Las Vegas, Kansas City, Salt Lake City, New York, Minneapolis, Atlanta, and Chicago.
