Console Connect, available immediately to customers all around the world, combines attributes never offered before to enterprises and service providers:
Console Connect’s automated provisioning and routing is simple and easy to use. Built with customer experience at its heart, the Console Connect application has eliminated the complexity of network configuration so the customer can focus on its core business. Customers are able to get started quickly with just one port and one cross-connect. Once the cross-connect is set up, business-critical applications and cloud partners can be connected with a click of a button.
The Software-Defined Interconnect can tie together enterprise data centers, headquarters to regional centers, and branch offices. Console Connect can link business partners and supply chain and get private access to public clouds, such as AWS, and other available IaaS providers. It can also privately connect to critical commonly used applications and services such as video conferencing, unified communications and service desks to improve performance and security.
The complete solution includes the tools needed to manage multiple secure direct connections, monitor connection performance, and view bandwidth allocation and utilization. At any time, the customer can adjust bandwidth up and down as needed.
Ms. Ronnie Klingner, President of Mobility and Digital Solutions, PCCW Global, said, “Console Connect enables access to some of the major cloud service providers across the globe for customers to access through the platform, including AWS, Azure, and Alibaba. By the third quarter this year, we aim to have all major cloud service providers on board as well as additional major SaaS providers.”
Ms. Klingner added, “The PCCW Global IP network is at the heart of Console Connect. We go to many parts of the world that others do not. Owning the network enables us to offer unique flexibility on bandwidth and terms. Other companies focus on the U.S. and Europe, and maybe one or two parts of Asia. PCCW Global is very diverse with presence all over North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and most markets in Asia. We are not starting from scratch. PCCW Global already serves a significant multinational customer base. It is far easier for our existing customers and partners to join Console Connect’s platform, compared to other companies who may not yet have the scale of our global network. We are already here.”
