The world’s largest IPv6-native internet backbone, Hurricane Electric announced the deployment of a new point of presence at Involta‘s Arizona data center. It is the company’s first PoP in Tucson and 7th in Arizona. Involta’s facility features over 38,000 square feet with environmental systems and controls, redundant backup power and HVAC, specialized fire detection, and reinforced concrete.
Additional IP transit options
Involta’s Tucson data center is served by redundant fiber optic connections and the expansion will provide additional IP transit options to organizations in the region. Tucson, known for its high concentration of startup companies, experienced almost 50% growth in the technology industry within the last five years.
With the new PoP, organizations in the region will be able to access the company’s IPv4 and IPv6 networks through 100GE, 10GE, and GigE ports. PoP will also enable customers to exchange IP traffic with Hurricane Electric’s global network, including 20,000 BGP sessions with more than 9,000 different networks via over 250 major exchange points. Mike Leber, President of Hurricane Electric said,
« We are excited to expand to our first location in Tucson. This new PoP will enable Hurricane Electric to meet the connectivity demands driven by Tucson’s robust growth. »
