15th March 2006:- Hurricane Electric, a leading Internet Backbone and Colocation Provider, announced today that it has successfully deployed Transmode’s TS-1100 C/DWDM optical transport solution to significantly expand its network in California.

The new Transmode network comprises 10G and 2.5G WDM links carrying Gigabit Ethernet traffic between 4 major POPs, giving Hurricane Electric significant additional capacity, greater network throughput and greater network resilience for its broad customer base.

Hurricane Electric provides technical web hosting including dedicated servers and colocation. The company is experiencing tremendous growth across the whole of its network and has recently expanded internationally with facilities in London and Amsterdam and added additional ports to a number of US POPs.

“At Hurricane Electric we differentiate ourselves with leading technical hosting and quality of service,” said Mike Leber, Hurricane Electric’s President. “Transmode’s solution offers us the ability to manage our current network more efficiently and to grow our network more economically in the future, thereby enabling us to strengthen these differentiators.”

The Transmode TS-1100 provides Hurricane Electric with a flexible and scalable platform utilizing the 7900 multi-protocol 10G Transponder, 7700 multi-protocol 2.5G Transponder and the 5400 2x GbE aggregator. Using patented Intelligent WDM (iWDM) protocol recognition and functionality such as SFP/XFP pluggable optics the TS-1100 provides network operators and enterprises with a true plug and play experience, greatly reducing network and service turn up times.

“Hurricane Electric is an important win for Transmode, against solid competition,” said Morgan Noecker, Transmode’s Director of North American Sales. “Our engineers have worked closely with Hurricane Electric to provide the optimum network design for their requirements and we look forward to continuing to exceed their expectations in the future. Furthermore, this win and other as yet unannounced wins strengthen our position in the North American which is a rapidly growing market for Transmode.”
