IP Transit Providers & Carriers Align for Enhanced Service, Increased Business & Geographic Reach

As originally written and published on LinkedIn Pulse

Ilissa MillerThe well-worn and ancient proverb, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend,” suggests that two opposing parties should work together against a common enemy. Where facilities-based carriers and global ISP Hurricane Electric are concerned, however, the formulation might look like this: the friend of my friend is my friend too.

Consider this…

Facilities-based carriers regularly expend tens to hundreds of millions of dollars to build physical fiber plants in order to sell circuits to their network and Internet
customers in limited regions of the world. Meanwhile, Hurricane Electric builds a global Internet backbone using circuits from carriers so it can sell wholesale IP Transit to these same networks and Internet companies, all of which require circuits from the local carrier to get to the buildings where Hurricane Electric’s routers are located. Some facilities-based carriers default to not selling higher-end services, such as Hurricane Electric’s high-speed IP transit connection, to customers due to the ill-conceived notion that they are their direct competition. The reality, however, could not be further from the truth.
