Hurricane Electric Adds Point Of Presence In Denver
Second location in city will provide customers and networks in 910Telcom’s data center with access to Hurricane Electric’s robust global network.
Hurricane Electric has announced a new Point of Presence (PoP) at 910Telecom in Denver, Colorado. 910Telecom’s colocation center is located at 910 15th Street, Denver, CO and is also known as the Denver Gas and Electric Building.
Located in the classic Denver Gas & Electric Building, 910Telecom is a carrier-neutral telecom hotel located in the heart of Denver. The 142,318 square feet facility provides high-grade, redundant electrical power, with multiple feeds, as well as redundant fiber optic loops entering the building at different points. 910Telecom is Denver’s nexus for international and national edge enterprises and carrier interconnects.
“Hurricane Electric has an amazing 'fan base’ with a long history of providing high-performance, secure networking accompanied with fanatical support for their customers,” said Eryn Taylor business development director at 910Telecom. “We are excited to add Hurricane Electric’s direct routed global network to our carrier portfolio."
The PoP will provide high speed IPv4 and IPv6 Internet connectivity through Hurricane Electric’s global IP network with 100GE (100 gigabit Ethernet), 10GE (10 gigabit Ethernet) and GigE (1 gigabit Ethernet) network connections. The connectivity options will provide 910Telecom’s carriers with reduced latency and router hops, as well improved fault tolerance.
“This new PoP strengthens Hurricane Electric’s commitment in the Denver market, as well as the entire Rocky Mountain Region,” said Walt Wollny director of interconnection strategy at Hurricane Electric. “It will provide increased bandwidth along with global network connectivity options for carriers and customers within the 910Telecom Building Meet-Me-Room.”
According to a recent report, Denver was identified as a top ten market for tech talent in the US, due in part to the growth of its tech labor force, as well as producing a strong number of tech graduates.
