Hurricane Electric IP Transit NetworkHurricane Electric's International Internet backbone is ranked among the top in the world. Connections ranging from multiple 10GigE (10,000 Mbps) to multiple 100GigE (100 Gbps) form rings connecting Hurricane core routers.
Hurricane Electric's network utilizes Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 (BGP4) over dark fiber and long haul wavelengths. We always update the router's software after we have stress tested the latest software on a non-critical router, to make sure it is very stable. The switch that your equipment will ultimately be connected to is connected back to a core router via fiber.
Please note that we are expanding and upgrading our network on a regular basis, so the network maps provided are snapshots of the network configuration at a specific point in time.
