Hurricane Electric global network

Internet backbone provider Hurricane Electric has deployed a new Point of Presence (PoP) in Arrow Group’s Calgary colocation data center. The new network PoP is located at #330 – 840 7th Ave. SW, Calgary, Alberta, Canada, in the heart of downtown.

Arrow Calgary provides network colocation and wholesale Internet. This colocation data center is strategically located to serve the area’s many energy and high-tech businesses. Users can cross connect to ‘tier one’ providers, as well as the Calgary Internet Exchange (YYCIX), the first IXP in Alberta.

This network PoP is Hurricane Electric’s second location in Calgary and sixteenth in Canada. It would provide enterprises in Alberta with improved fault tolerance, load balancing and congestion management in the delivery of next generation IP connectivity services.

Customers of Arrow Group now have a variety of new connectivity options and access to Hurricane Electric’s extensive IPv4 and IPv6 network through 100GE (100 Gigabit Ethernet), 10GE (10 Gigabit Ethernet) and GigE (1 Gigabit Ethernet) ports. Additionally, customers at this colocation facility can exchange IP traffic with Hurricane Electric’s vast global network. This network offers over 20,000 BGP sessions with over 8,000 different networks via more than 250 major exchange points and thousands of customer and private peering ports.
