Businesses operating out of New York City are constantly seeking fast, affordable and reliable connectivity services. Fortunately, the market is growing and so more options are becoming available.

TELEHOUSE America, for example, has announced that Hurricane Electric will expand its network to the TELEHOUSE New York Teleport Data Center. This will be Hurricane Electric’s sixth New York City Point of Presence (PoP). The 162,000 square-foot, Tier 3, carrier-neutral facility is just one of two TELEHOUSE data centers in the city. It’s located just 17 miles from Manhattan, and offers key access points to major peering exchange points and carrier hotels. The facility also serves as a disaster recovery and business continuity site, and it’s HIPAA, PCI and SSAE 16-compliant.

“We are excited to have Hurricane Electric extend its network into our 7 Teleport data center,” stated Richard Levine, Director of Sales and Marketing at TELEHOUSE America. “This expansion enables our customers to extend and improve their network reach by connecting to Hurricane Electric’s global IPv6 network. It also allows them to exchange traffic directly with more than 7,000 different networks and over 180 major exchange points.”

With the new PoP, customers can gain direct access to Hurricane Electric’s world-leading IPv4 and IPv6 network over 100GbE, 10GbE and GigE ports. Both new and current customers will benefit from reduced latency, better throughput, greater reliability and more connectivity options.

“Hurricane Electric is delighted to extend our global network to the TELEHOUSE New York Teleport Data Center,” stated President of Hurricane Electric Mike Leber. “This is a key location in our strategic global expansion and will further meet the demand for high-speed IP transit that is inherent to a robust economic environment such as New York.”
