Console Connect, a leading provider of global direct connect solutions, this week announced that Omantel, the leading Middle Eastern carrier, will be the company’s first network partner in the Middle East.

The partnership will allow Omantel to offer Console’s interconnection solutions to its enterprise and wholesale customers, by providing regional access to the Console Connect platform, allowing a more holistic and secure cloud connectivity service. The deal will also offer Console Connect greater reach in the region through the partnership with Omantel.

With over 170 Console nodes PoPs across the globe, the Console platform provides enterprises with secure, simple and direct access to a global ecosystem of cloud infrastructure providers, SaaS providers and partners, including Amazon, Microsoft, Google, LinkedIn, Box, Zendesk and many others. Using Console Connect’s platform, Omantel’s customers will be able to migrate away from the public internet and leverage the company’s interconnection technology to securely transfer data to their partners in real-time, significantly reducing time and costs, said Console Connect.

Omantel said it will be able to deliver more secure cloud connectivity to its customers in the region, as well as across the Omantel’s network spanning Europe, US and Asia.

Jef Graham, CEO, Console Connect
So far, none of the key cloud infrastructure players have connection points in the Middle East, so the partnership with Omantel allows us to solidify our footprint in this region, and offer Omantel’s customers the opportunity to securely interconnect with other markets.

Sohail Qadir, VP Wholesale at Omantel 
The Console Connect platform will further strengthen Omantel’s portfolio of innovative services by providing a completely secure, simple and fast solution for our customers across the Middle East to directly connect to business-critical cloud providers, SaaS providers and partners.
