I am thrilled to announce our new partnership with Hurricane Electric and that the Channel Community now has a means to engage their clients directly with HE and get paid!

What I admire most about HE, second of course to their massive global IPv6 backbone, is the passion, purpose and vision driving HE’s founder and CEO Mike Leber.  Mike has proven time and again to be one of the most humble, admirable and technically savvy CEO’s in the telecommunications industry. His mission to leverage the company to fuel technical literacy and training is directly in line with the core values of OSI, and I look forward to supporting HE in every way we possibly can.

FREMONT, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hurricane Electric, the world’s largest IPv6-native Internet backbone and leading colocation provider, today announced that it has launched a channel partner program to help broaden the reach of its Internet connectivity and colocation services. To assist with the rollout of the new program, Hurricane Electric has signed its first Master Agent, Open Spectrum, Inc., based in Scotts Valley, Calif.

“Hurricane Electric is excited to launch this channel partner program and announce the addition of our inaugural Master Agent, Open Spectrum”

Hurricane Electric launched the channel partner program to allow outside agents the opportunity to sell Hurricane Electric’s services, which include nearly 300,000 square feet of data center space in Silicon Valley as well as global IP transit that is accessible in twenty-two countries and twenty US states. Agents with experience selling IP transit and/or colocation are encouraged to apply to participate in the Channel Program.

The Channel Program offers its partners the following benefits:
