Share

Hurricane Electric, the world’s largest IPv6-native Internet backbone announced today that it has deployed a new Point of Presence (PoP) at Telemach Ljubljana. The new PoP is located at 49 Brnčičeva, Ljubljana 1231, Slovenia.

Telemach Ljubljana is a modern data center providing the metropolitan area with 99.982% reliability, N+1 redundancy in power and cooling, and comprehensive security measures for their colocation and cloud services clients. This data center is strategically located to provide reliable service to customers in and around this Central European regional economic center.

This PoP is Hurricane Electric’s 1st location in Slovenia and 7th in the region. It will provide enterprises in the Greater Ljubljana area with improved fault tolerance, load balancing and congestion management in the delivery of next generation IP connectivity services.

According to Invest in Slovenia, many foreign investors are attracted to Slovenia’s strategic position in Central Europe, as well as its transport and ITC infrastructure, and industry clusters. Additionally, Slovenia is home to numerous established IT companies, and Information Systems outsourcing has grown to become the largest market in Slovenia, followed by systems integration and hardware support. Slovenia also boasts robust start-up communities, with many concentrated in technology parks such as Technology Park Brdo-Ljubljana.

Customers of Telemach and those in and around Ljubljana now have a variety of new connectivity options and access to Hurricane Electric’s extensive IPv4 and IPv6 network through 100GE (100 Gigabit Ethernet), 10GE (10 Gigabit Ethernet) and GigE (1 Gigabit Ethernet) ports.

“Hurricane Electric is excited to continue expanding its global network throughout Central Europe,” said Mike Leber, President, Hurricane Electric. “This new PoP will provide additional connectivity options for Telemach’s customers and organizations throughout Ljubljana, while satisfying high-speed global connectivity needs.”
