Console Connect by PCCW Global Launches Internet On-Demand Service

PCCW Global’s internet access service is now available on-demand via the award-winning Console Connect digital platform.

Console Connect now offers high-performance internet access across the same global T1 network relied upon by the world’s largest content and hyperscale cloud providers, ISPs and MNOs. The Internet On-Demand (IO-D) service is now available to Console Connect users via their existing access ports, enabling them to provision global Internet access whenever they need it.

The IO-D service can be accessed initially via hundreds of key data centers throughout Europe, Asia and North America. Other locations will be added and new service features rolled out in 2021. By combining the new IO-D service and direct connections to all major cloud providers in all regional zones, the company says, businesses can experience greater network security and performance for their cloud environments and applications.

According to the company, the Console Connect platform is already available in more than 400 data centers across 47 countries, bringing together a growing ecosystem of integrated public cloud, SaaS, IoT, IX, carrier and enterprise partners such as DE-CIX, Cloudflare, Anexia, RingCentral, Google Cloud, AWS, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Alibaba Cloud, Tencent Cloud, Oracle Cloud and more.

Users can self-provision, manage and monitor their interconnections in real-time via the secure Console Connect platform or API.

The high quality of service and low latency of the underlying PCCW Global IP network means that the IO-D service is suitable for carrying performance-sensitive data, and can meet the demands of sectors such as gaming, government and finance.

Customers can protect their Console Connect IO-D access with a range of security services from PCCW Global, including Anti-DDoS, Managed Firewall and Managed Router.
