PCCW Global, the international operating division of HKT, Hong Kong’s premier telecommunications service provider, and DCConnect, a leading APAC on-demand connectivity, data center and cloud provider, have entered into a technology collaboration that will enable both Console Connect and DCConnect customers to seamlessly leverage network services from either service provider, including providing DCConnect customers with on-demand access to PCCW Global’s extensive international network footprint.
PCCW Global’s Console Connect is a game-changer for business, making the process of connecting to cloud-based business-critical applications and geographically distributed offices, partners and clients simple, predictable and secure. Spanning over 37 countries, the Console Connect platform enables users to purchase on-demand connectivity in more than 100 global data centers and to all major cloud on-ramp partners, including AWS Direct Connect, Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, Oracle Cloud, Google Cloud, Alibaba Cloud and Tencent Cloud.
DCConnect is the leading software-defined enterprise and carrier platform in China. DCConnect’s coverage includes every major data center and cloud vendor in China. The technology collaboration will enable DCConnect’s clients to interconnect with the Console Connect platform in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Los Angeles - providing access to a truly global network.
The API integration allows users to run private and secure virtual connections across both networks, as well as being able to provision, upgrade, and monitor on-demand services. Both platforms enable users to interconnect and purchase flexible services on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis - only paying for services which are available to be used with no lock-in contracts or minimum usage criteria.
Mr. Billy Fung, Chief Technology Officer, DCConnect, said, “DCConnect is excited to establish a two-way integration with PCCW Global. We look forward to enabling our customers to make use of PCCW Global’s extensive and robust IP backbone and global subsea network, providing instant access, with Quality of Service, to many markets around the world. Similarly, we also look forward to serving PCCW Global customers with our own extensive network resources throughout China.”
Mr. Michael Glynn, Global Vice President of Digital Automated Innovation, PCCW Global, said, “The interconnect collaboration with DCConnect allows our customers to access more data centers directly from our platform. We are building one of the largest SDN wholesale ecosystems worldwide for carriers, network providers, and other SDN providers, enabling them to access our extensive redundant global backbone on-demand, while extending their coverage and service offering to support their own customer needs, by interconnecting into our platform at any of our on-net data centers.”
