Hurricane Electric has announced that it has added a new Point of Presence (PoP) at Nebraska Colocation Centers (NCC) located at 1623 Farnam Street, Omaha, NE 68102. The facility houses one of the oldest carrier hotels in the area and has provided state-of-the-art colocation services to regional, as well as national, carriers for more than twenty years.

Hurricane Electric employs a resilient fiber-optic topology and has no less than four redundant paths crossing North America, two separate paths between the U.S. and Europe, and rings in Europe and Asia. Having first deployed IPv6 in 2001, Hurricane Electric offers IPv6 as a core service; every customer is provided IPv6 connectivity as well as classic IPv4 connectivity.

Situated within NCC’s Carrier Hotel, this new PoP will enable customers to experience improved fault tolerance, lower latency and increased network capacity through 100GE (100 gigabit Ethernet), 10GE (10 gigabit Ethernet), GigE (1 gigabit Ethernet) and 100BaseT network connections. Additionally, customers will now have the opportunity to exchange IP traffic, or “peer,” with Hurricane Electric’s global network.

“Hurricane Electric is dedicated to providing unparalleled next-generation IP connectivity to customers in the Midwest,” said Mike Leber, president of Hurricane Electric. “It’s one part of Hurricane Electric’s strategy to remain ahead of the incredible growth in IPv6 traffic.”
