PCCW Global and Global Switch expand on-demand global connectivity in Asia
PCCW Global, the international operating division of HKT, Hong Kong’s premier telecommunications service provider, and Global Switch, a leading owner, operator and developer of large-scale carrier and cloud neutral data centres in Europe and Asia-Pacific, today announced the launch of a new Console Connect point-of-presence (PoP) at Global Switch’s Tai Seng data center in Singapore.
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 centres 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. Uniquely, 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. Through diverse connectivity with the Tai Seng data center, Global Switch’s Woodlands facility also offers access to the same rich diversity of telecommunications services.
Mr. Michael Glynn, PCCW Global’s Vice President of Digital Automated Innovation, said, “Global Switch hosts a thriving, densely interconnected ecosystem in Singapore, with major connections to other business hubs around the world. 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.”
Once established on the Console Connect SDI platform, it is a straight forward and easy process for Global Switch customers to set up, change or upgrade a virtual circuit across the network to any connected user or service, for any available period from a day to a year at a time, but importantly only pay for bandwidth rather than data volume, with no lock-in contract.
Mr. Damon Reid, Global Switch’s Group Director, Asia-Pacific, said, “PCCW Global is already an important part of the connectivity ecosystem at our Singapore Tai Seng data center, and we are delighted to see their services expand in this location. 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.”
