Did you know that fixedorbit.com’s Knodes Index named Hurricane Electric in the Top 10 Internet Networks in the World?
"Hurricane Electric’s Network Ranked Top Ten Fremont, CA – March 6, 2006 – Hurricane Electric, a leading Technical Service Provider, has been named one of the top ten Internet networks in the world by fixedorbit.com’s Knodes Index, a list of the top ten networks in the world as measured by connectivity to the rest of the Internet.
Hurricane Electric made its debut to The Knodes Index as the tenth Internet network in the world, based upon connectivity. Hurricane Electric was ranked on a variety of statistics, including its relative size, IP address control, and peering arrangements. “We are very excited about making it to the top 10,” said Mike Leber, Hurricane Electric president.
“We have been actively adding and upgrading exchange points around the world to give us better performance over our entire network. Our goal is to continue to make improvements to our global network so we will rank even higher.”
Hurricane Electric has been making dramatic improvement to its network connectivity in the U.S., Europe, and around the world. In the past year, Hurricane Electric added a second exchange point in Los Angeles, CA by connecting to LAIIX, a neutral and scalable peering infrastructure located in Telehouse Los Angeles, and a second exchange point in Amsterdam by connecting to NL-ix (Netherlands Internet Exchange), a content oriented Dutch national Internet Exchange.
Hurricane Electric also increased the size of its connection to the AMS-IX (The Amsterdam Internet Exchange) exchange, one of Europe's largest neutral Internet exchange points, upgrading from a Gigabit Ethernet port to a 10 Gigabit Ethernet port.
Hurricane Electric’s future plans include more upgrades to existing exchange points and the opening of a new 208,000 square foot colocation facility in Fremont, CA to complement three other facilities it operates in San Jose, CA, Fremont, CA, and New York, NY. Hurricane Electric’s new colocation facility, located at 48233 Warm Springs, is expected to open within weeks."

Also if you want to do trace routes to our network at that location from any other network you can use our looking glass to do that. It is at http://lg.he.net At the looking glass web page you would 1) For "Router" select "Hurricane Fremont, CA", then 2) For "Command" select "Traceroute" or "Ping", then 3) in the "Arguments" box put an ip address of the location on the other network you want to do a trace to. This will show you the speed and what networks it takes. Remember that "Traceroute" and "Ping" are relegated to the last and slowest priority on our network of all traffic, thus it will show the slowest a packet of information could take.
