Cologix and Console Connect expand into Canada with PoP in Montréal


Cologix and Console Connect by PCCW Global confirm that the Console Connect Software Defined Interconnection platform is now available at Cologix’s MTL7 data centre in Montréal through a new point of presence (PoP).

Through this new PoP at the Cologix MTL7 data centre, Console Connect is increasing its interconnection footprint across Canada with availability of its automated platform at all 20 of Cologix's Canadian data centre locations.

As a result, Cologix’s Canadian customers are able to directly connect to Console Connect’s Network-as-a-Service platform, delivering on-demand access to international connectivity across the Console Connect fabric to more than 650 data centres in over 50 countries.

“Console Connect is expanding its presence and reach across North America, enabling more businesses in the region to access and experience our on-demand networking services," said Mr. Michael Glynn, vice president of digital automated innovation at Console Connect.

"I am pleased to welcome Cologix to the Console Connect ecosystem, while growing the availability of our platform in Canada with our first PoP in Montréal.”

The expansion of the platform supports the growing cloud connectivity requirements of enterprises in Canada.

Through the Console Connect web portal or its API, Cologix’s Canadian customers can quote, order, deliver and manage their network connections to cloud platforms including Amazon Web Services, Alibaba Cloud, Google Cloud Interconnect, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, to name a few.

“We are delighted to collaborate with Console Connect to extend its reach across Canada and welcome Console Connect as a new platform to our MTL7 facility," said Laura Ortman, president & chief revenue officer at Cologix.

"We look forward to working together to enable our customers to connect to the cloud globally and support international business growth in Canada with greater access to carriers and customers.”

Using the Cologix platform, customers have access to the company’s North American ecosystem which includes four cloud gateways in Ashburn, Virginia, Columbus, Ohio, Montréal, Quebec and Silicon Valley, California.
