WINNIPEG -- Hurricane Electric, the world’s largest IPv6-native Internet backbone and a leading colocation provider, today announced that it has connected to the Winnipeg Internet Exchange (WPGIX).

The new expansion will allow customers of WPGIX to experience improved fault tolerance, lower latency and increased network capacity through both IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity. Additionally, WPGIX customers will now have the opportunity to exchange IP traffic, or “peer,” with Hurricane Electric’s rich global Internet backbone.

“Hurricane Electric is excited to expand the reach of its next-generation IPv6 Internet infrastructure in Canada,” said Mike Leber, President of Hurricane Electric. “This newest connection will improve Hurricane Electric’s connectivity in the Greater Winnipeg area and highlights our continued commitment to the Canadian market.”

Last month, Hurricane Electric announced the addition of six new connections throughout Eastern Europe.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
