The latest PoP in Brazil is located at 333 Rua Raimundo Esteves, Fortaleza CE 60182-330. It's one of the country's most important Internet exchanges, with GlobeNet home to many ISPs in the region.

GlobeNet's location has made it desirable notes Hurricane Electric, with the location in Fortaleza just six miles from an airport, while there are also protected subsea fiber optic cable routes across the Atlantic, allowing for 99.99 percent uptime.

More significantly, since the new facilities came online in the third quarter of this year it has tripled the number of racks and power available at the PoP.

“Fortaleza’s thriving economy and proximity to trans-Atlantic cables make this PoP an excellent access point enabling Brazilian business to connect globally,” said Mike Leber, President of Hurricane Electric.

“Our fourth Pop in Brazil and fifth in South America continues our commitment to ensuring that users everywhere have access to high-speed connectivity.”

GlobeNet customers in Fortaleza will be able to access Hurricane Electric’s extensive IPv4 and IPv6 network through 100GE (100 Gigabit Ethernet), 10GE (10 Gigabit Ethernet) and GigE (1 Gigabit Ethernet) ports.

Within its global network, Hurricane Electric is connected to over 280 major exchange points and exchanges traffic directly with more than 10,000 different networks.
