PCCW Global and Global Switch Launch Singapore PoP

PCCW Global and Global Switch have announced the launch of a new Console Connect point-of-presence at Global Switch’s Tai Seng data center in Singapore.

The Console Connect 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.

The carrier and cloud neutral Global Switch data center at Tai Seng in Singapore is already widely recognized as being one of the most important connectivity hubs in the Asia Pacific region and beyond, hosting vibrant and ever-expanding ecosystems. Global Switch Tai Seng has a number of submarine cable systems landing directly at the facility, and has direct links with Global Switch Singapore Woodlands, which was launched earlier this year.
