Asia is a hub of global connectivity, supporting some of the world’s largest economies as they transition to digital platforms and increase their demand for the power of cloud computing.

The Console Connect software-defined interconnection platform spans the entire Asian region, enabling service providers, data center ecosystems and enterprise customers to instantly access self-provisioned, on-demand connectivity between countries and key cloud providers on the network.

Console Connect customers in South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines can simply order direct access to the region’s major cloud on-ramps in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore, from 25 key regional data centers in Asia today.

Unlike many of its SDN competitors, who have to lease bandwidth from network operators, Console Connect runs on the worldwide PCCW Global MPLS network. This high-quality, uncontended, redundant core network with multiple diverse paths between countries gives Console Connect customers the agility and control of SDN with the security and service resilience of dedicated infrastructure.

Service providers and enterprises around the globe can order services directly into all Asian regions on the one SDN platform, with no more restrictions by geography or the technical difficulty of connecting securely to multiple networks. It’s simple and easy for partners or customers using Console Connect to self-manage cost-effective, reliable and flexible connectivity throughout the Asia, and satisfy more of their customers’ business needs.
