HKT (SEHK: 6823) – HONG KONG, February 18, 2021 – Console Connect by PCCW Global and Princeton Digital Group (PDG) have teamed up to provide businesses in Singapore with secure, fast and flexible connections to leading cloud providers located throughout Asia.

Console Connect has recently launched a Point of Presence (PoP) at PDG’s SG1 data center in Singapore that enables PDG customers to directly connect to the Console Connect digital platform, giving them access to international connectivity on-demand linking more than 400 data centers in over 50 countries.

Through Console Connect, users can instantly provision direct and private connections to over 900 entities worldwide, including all major private and public cloud providers, and a growing number of carrier, data center, SaaS, UCaaS and IoT partners.

The platform supports the growing cloud connectivity requirements of enterprises in Singapore, which are among the highest adopters of public cloud services in Asia. Using either the secure Console Connect web portal or its API, PDG customers can quote, order, deliver and manage their network connections to leading cloud platforms including AWS, Alibaba Cloud, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Naver Cloud and many others.

Console Connect is the only Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) platform which is underpinned by one of the world’s largest Tier 1 networks. This network offers extensive coverage across Asia, with pay-as-you-go pricing available to Console Connect users for on-demand bandwidth between key Asian markets such as Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore, as well as beyond to Europe, Africa and the Americas.

Console Connect’s new Internet On-Demand (IO-D) service will also soon be available to PDG customers at the Singapore data center, enabling them to purchase more carrier services through one access port.

Mr. Michael Glynn, Vice President of Digital Automated Innovation, PCCW Global, said, “Singapore is one of Asia’s most important hubs and a key growth market for Console Connect in 2021. I am delighted to welcome Princeton Digital Group to the Console Connect ecosystem, while extending the availability of our platform in Singapore. As businesses in the country accelerate their journey to the cloud, they are more reliant on networks to access digital infrastructure and services. Console Connect not only improves the overall security and performance of connections to the cloud, it also gives enterprises greater agility as they embark further on their cloud journey.”

SG1 is located in the heart of Singapore and is a strategic location for hyperscale cloud providers and enterprises that are looking to expand their operations or require additional capacity. The facility is located near the existing cloud and network hub of Tai Seng, providing direct access to the SGX trading platform and other FSI ecosystems.
