The hurricane effect

Hurricane Electric
Acting as an invested member of France-IX since 2011, Hurricane Electric internet services has decided to progressively increase its IPv4 and IPv6 routes number exchanged on our international exchange point.

To avoid taking the other France-IX peers in a connectivity whirlwind, HE will gradually come to announce 100 times more IPv4 routes (around 15,000 routes) to France-IX routes servers. HE also intents on boosting the figures in IPv6: currently announcing 7,600 routes to one routes server, HE will send the same number of routes to the other route servers. These two actions will happen before mid-September.

The benefits will be real to the members connected to the routes server. These members will be able to collect these routes and thus enhance the connectivity of their networks.

IP renumbering still in progress

IP renumbering still in progress
Beginning of July 2013 France-IX launched a renumbering campaign which should have ended at the end of the same month. For now, only 75% of the concerned members have proceeded with the change of IPs.

We thank you in advance to go on and renumber your network asap if you haven't done it.
