PCCW Global, the international operating division of HKT this week announced the launch of a new Console Connect point-of-presence (PoP) at Global Switch’s Tai Seng data center in Singapore.

Global Switch is a leading owner, operator and developer of large-scale carrier and cloud neutral data centers in Europe and Asia-Pacific.

The Console Connect Software-Defined Interconnection (SDI) platform delivers a simple, user-friendly and affordable way to connect to cloud-based applications, partners, client IT infrastructure and the world’s major cloud hosting services. The platform currently interconnects over 100 data centers in 36 countries on the worldwide PCCW Global MPLS network, which is physically separate to the public Internet and features an uncontended, redundant core network with multiple low-latency paths between countries.

Through the Console Connect SDI platform, Global Switch customers in Singapore will be able to access connectivity on-demand to a global network of key data center ecosystems and major cloud on-ramps through a single dashboard interface, including Alibaba Cloud, AWS Direct Connect, Google Interconnect, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, QingCloud and Tencent Cloud.

Damon Reid, Global Switch's Group Director, Asia-Pasific
The availability of PCCW Global’s on-demand digital SDI platform is important to our customers as it provides reliability, scalability, performance and economies that are critical in today’s fast-moving technological world.

Michael Glynn, VP of Digital Automated Innovation, PCCW Global
The new PoP is a significant addition to our global network, and we look forward to working with new and existing Global Switch customers to simplify and streamline their network service with the same agility they experience with cloud.
