PCCW Global launches Internet on-demand service via Console Connect
PCCW Global confirms the availability of its global Internet access service on-demand via the Console Connect digital platform.
Through the new service, Console Connect’s software-defined interconnection platform now offers high-performance Internet access across its global tier 1 IP network.
Capable of carrying traffic at more than 14Tbps and with extensive global peering, PCCW Global’s AS3491 network offers both IPv4 and IPv6 by Dyn IP Transit Intelligence.
The Internet on-demand (IO-D) service is now available to Console Connect users via their existing access ports, enabling them to provision global Internet access as they need it.
Initially available through hundreds of data centres throughout Europe, Asia and North America, the IO-D service will be expanded with the addition of further locations and new service features rolled out in 2021.
“Using the power of software-defined interconnection, Console Connect is reimagining how customers experience popular and trusted network services,” said Michael Glynn, vice president of digital automated innovation, PCCW Global.
“With Console Connect Internet on-demand, we have put businesses in the driving seat with high-performance global Internet connectivity, giving them control over one of the world’s largest, fastest and best-connected networks.”
By combining the new IO-D service and direct connections to all major cloud providers in all regional zones, businesses benefit from greater network security and performance for their cloud environments and applications.
At present, the Console Connect platform is available in more than 400 data centres across 47 countries, delivering an ecosystem of integrated public cloud, SaaS, IoT, IX, carrier and enterprise partners such as DE-CIX, Cloudflare, Anexia, Google Cloud, AWS, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Alibaba Cloud, Tencent Cloud and Oracle Cloud, to name a few.
Most recently, the company announced a new collaboration with RingCentral to provide on-demand private network connections to RingCentral’s global unified communication services.
Through the partnership, RingCentral customers, once connected to the Console Connect platform, can establish private connections between their enterprise sites and RingCentral global cloud services through the Console Connect web portal.
This is particularly beneficial to enterprises in industries such as healthcare, financial services, and education as Console Connect offers a service-level agreement that guarantees a reliable service.
Using the IO-D service, users can self-provision, manage and monitor their interconnections in real-time via the secure Console Connect platform or API.
Thanks to the reliability and low latency of the underlying PCCW Global IP network, mean that the IO-D service is suitable for carrying performance-sensitive data, and can meet the demands of sectors such as gaming, government and finance.
Additionally, customers can protect their Console Connect IO-D access with a range of security services from PCCW Global, including Anti-DDoS, Managed Firewall and Managed Router.
