The new PoP is Hurricane Electric's first in Perth in and fifth in Australia.
Benefits will include improved fault tolerance, load balancing and congestion management for enterprises in Perth and Western Australia.
NextDC customers in and around Perth are able to connect to Hurricane Electric's IPv4 and IPv6 network through 100, 10 and 1 gigabit Ethernet ports.
They can exchange IP traffic with Hurricane Electric's global network which in turn connects to more than 8,000 different networks via more than 250 major exchange points and thousands of customer and private peering ports.
"With the introduction of a second point of presence inside NextDC's national footprint, this new WA location will allow locally based businesses to seamlessly access the cost-effective and high-performance connectivity options made available to them via this partnership," said NextDC chief sales officer Adam Scully.
"Our priority is ensuring we closely support our customers as they accelerate their digital-first priorities, and it's through our strategic partnerships with companies like Hurricane Electric that enable us to do so".
Hurricane Electric president Mike Leber said "We're pleased to continue our partnership with NextDC and be able to provide their customers in and around Perth with cost-effective global connectivity options.
"The addition of this new location is important for our continued expansion in Australia and will help meet the bandwidth needs of connecting the area to Australia's east coast and Asia."
