IP Transit

Get access to more networks directly with lower latency and fewer hops by getting a High Speed IP Transit Connection from Hurricane Electric. Hurricane Electric operates one of the top International Internet Backbones.

Because Hurricane supports IPv6 and IPv4 over the same connection at no additional charge, once you get an IP Transit connection from Hurricane Electric you will be already set to add IPv6 support for your customers.

  • All core nodes have multiple 10 Gbps (OC-192 / STM-64) connections - Each of our core routers has a combination of backbone circuits, exchange ports, and private peering connections.
  • International Network - Hurricane Electric has over 9000 BGP sessions with over 2,300 different networks via 50 major exchange points and thousands of customer and private peering ports.
  • Resilient Long Haul Topology - Hurricane Electric has at least four redundant paths crossing the US, two separate paths between the US and Europe, and rings in Europe and Asia.
  • Speeds up to 10 Gbps and greater - Hurricane Electric can deliver 10GE (10 Gigabit Ethernet) and gige (Gigabit Ethernet) ports at all core router locations. For speeds in excess of 10 Gbps, Hurricane Electric can bond multiple 10GE ports for customers.
  • Direct DWDM Backbone Circuits - All our backbone circuits are run over DWDM wavelengths directly on fiber, not on some other carrier's MPLS.
  • IPv6 transit and IPv4 transit on the same customer connection- Because Hurricane Electric's network is dual stack, Hurricane Electric can deliver wirespeed 10GE IPv6 transit on the same port as your IPv4 transit.
  • Copper or Fiber Internet Connections - Get IP Transit via copper 10/100/1000 base T or fiber at 850nm (multimode), 1310nm or 1550nm (singlemode) using your SFP, SFP+, XFP, GBIC, or XENPAK.
  • Burstable or Flat Rate - Burstable pricing as well as flat rate pricing is available. We can accommodate your rapid growth or fixed budget.
