Our self-healing network architecture virtually eliminates a single point of failure. Unlike other backbones, we aggressively connect to Internet exchange points and privately interconnect in each local market to local networks to ensure that your data will arrive via the shortest possible routes. On an ongoing basis, we are negotiating with the top fiber carriers for new shorter routes, and we are signing on new customer and peering relationships.

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.
