Colorado Springs, CO and Fremont, Calif. – October 13, 2011 – Hurricane Electric, the world’s largest IPv6-native Internet backbone and colocation provider, today announced that it is providing bandwidth and connectivity solutions to Data102, Southern Colorado’s leading colocation provider.
The new relationship will improve Data102’s bandwidth, reliability and congestion management capabilities when delivering next-generation IP access services. It will also give Data102’s customers access to Hurricane Electric’s rich global network.
“With access to Hurricane Electric’s network infrastructure, our customers will benefit from higher throughput and lower latency,” said Travis Taylor, Director of Business Development at Data102. “In addition, this relationship will improve the reliability and fault tolerance of our network.”
