largest and longest operating multi-tenant, mission-critical
telecommunications and data center facility, One Summer Street is a
natural fit for Hurricane Electric to provide increased connectivity
options for enterprises in the Greater Boston area and throughout New

options through 10GE (10 gigabit Ethernet), 100Gbps, GigE (1 gigabit
Ethernet) and 100BaseT network connections, this new PoP will provide
improved fault tolerance, load balancing, congestion management and
reduced latency in the delivery of next-generation IP connectivity
services. Customers of One Summer Street will also have the ability to
exchange IP traffic, or "peer," with Hurricane Electric's global network.
"Hurricane Electric is looking forward to meeting customer demand for
additional connectivity options in the Greater Boston area," said Mike
Leber, President of Hurricane Electric. "With this new PoP, customers of
One Summer Street will be able to connect to more networks directly, and
with fewer hops."
