Hurricane Electric, Neutral Path to bring high speed IP transit to Minnesota

Hurricane Electric, an IPv6-native Internet backbone, is collaborating with high-capacity communications transport service provider Neutral Path Communications to establish a new Point of Presence (PoP) within Neutral Path´s MSP1 facility, the company said.

The carrier-neutral MSP1 facility provides customers with direct access to Neutral Path Communications´ dark fiber backbone and additional fiber interconnects to a variety of providers.

The company´s underground backbone network spans over 1,300 route miles and over 110,000 fiber miles throughout the heart of the Midwest between key aggregation points in Denver, Omaha and Minneapolis. With the establishment of this latest PoP, Hurricane Electric is now one of ten additional Internet suppliers at this location.

Fremont, California-based Hurricane Electric operates its own global IPv4 and IPv6 network and is considered the largest IPv6 backbone in the world as measured by number of networks connected.

Neutral Path was born out of broadband service provider demand for a simple and route mile efficient means to fill the never-ending need for fiber connectivity to key points in the Midwest. Neutral Path delivers carrier neutral transport solutions, including high-capacity dark fiber, low latency wavelengths, Ethernet, carrier hotel, cross connect and related services to local, national, and global broadband providers and enterprise network operators.
