Hurricane Electric Expands Global Network in Central Europe

Global Internet network backbone provider, Hurricane Electric, has deployed a new network Point-of-Presence (PoP) at Telemach’s colocation data center in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Telemach Ljubljana is a modern data center providing the metropolitan area with “99.982% reliability,” N+1 redundancy in power and cooling, and comprehensive security measures for their colocation and cloud services clients.

Hurricanme Electric has chosen this data center as it is strategically located to provide reliable data center services to customers in and around this Central European regional economic center.

This PoP is Hurricane Electric’s 1st data center location in Slovenia and 7th in the region. It is intended to help increase fault tolerance, load balancing, and congestion control in the supply of next-generation IP connectivity services to businesses in the Greater Ljubljana area.

Many foreign investors are drawn to Slovenia because of its strategic location in Central Europe, says Hurricane Electric, as well as its transportation and ICT infrastructure and industry clusters. Slovenia would also boast robust start-up communities, with many concentrated in technology parks such as Technology Park Brdo-Ljubljana.

Access to IPv4 and IPv6 Network

Telemach clients, as well as those in and around Ljubljana, now have access to Hurricane Electric’s large IPv4 and IPv6 network via 100GE (100 Gigabit Ethernet), 10GE (10 Gigabit Ethernet), and GigE (1 Gigabit Ethernet) ports. Colocation customers at the facility can also exchange IP traffic with Hurricane Electric’s enormous worldwide network, which has over 20,000 BGP sessions with over 9,000 different networks and thousands of customer and private peering ports.

“Hurricane Electric is excited to continue expanding its global network throughout Central Europe,” said Mike Leber, President at Hurricane Electric. “This new PoP will provide additional connectivity options for Telemach’s customers and organizations throughout Ljubljana, while satisfying high-speed global connectivity needs.”
