PCCW Global and DE-CIX partner to extend global footprint
PCCW Global and DE-CIX have partnered to extend the reach of DE-CIX’s cloud and data centre offerings via PCCW Global Console connect SDI platform.
Through the collaboration the two will also give Console Connect customers direct on-demand access to the DE-CIX platform through the self-providing platform.
“It has always been DE-CIX’s ambition to make interconnection as easy as possible anywhere our customers need our services on the planet,” said Ivo Ivanov, chief executive officer of DE-CIX International. “This collaboration with PCCW Global is just the right step to getting interconnection even closer to the edge. We are thrilled to be the first IX globally to join the Console Connect SDI platform.”
The Console Connect SDI platform is a platform for software-define interconnect delivering DE-CIX customers a real-time self –provisioning, pay-as-you-go ecosystem that offers on-demand virtual connection to 37 countries, together with provisioning to key cloud such as AWS, IBM Cloud, Tencent Cloud, Alibaba Cloud, Oracle Cloud and Google Cloud. In addition, the platform also delivers direct, private connectivity to an additional 120 data centres in key markets throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and North America.
“We are pleased that this collaboration will be the first IX interconnect platform to be integrated with our global SDI® platform, enabling our wholesale and enterprise customers to instantly provision virtual circuits across our SDI platform to access multi DE-CIX on-ramp locations,” added Michael Glynn (pictured), vice president of digital automated innovation, PCCW Global. “It also enables DE-CIX customers to purchase on-demand services via our platform from key cloud partners around the world and extend their IX platform to over 120 on-net data centres in 37 countries. This is another step in assuring SDI® platform for carriers, SD-WAN providers, IX platforms, and other SDN operators, helping them extend their reach and interconnect together via traditional Network-to-Network Interconnection using our self-provisioning portal, or integrating via API at any of our access points.”
