Cologix Expands Console Connect Partnership with Second Canadian PoP

Cologix, North America’s leading network-neutral interconnection and hyperscale edge data center company, and Console Connect by PCCW Global are growing their strategic partnership in Canada by deploying a second Point of Presence (PoP) in Toronto.

The companies announced that the Console Connect Software Defined Interconnection® platform is now available through Cologix’s TOR1 data center in Toronto.

This marks Console Connect’s second PoP within Cologix’s Canadian market and interconnection ecosystem. The first became available in December 2021 at Cologix’s MTL7 data center in Montréal.

“Through our growing collaboration with Console Connect, we’re excited to offer our Canadian customers additional fast and reliable interconnections at the digital edge to connect with their customers, partners and employees across the globe,” said Sean Maskell, President and General Manager, Cologix Canada. “Moreover, we provide our customers with choice and flexibility through our interconnection ecosystem of 600+ networks, 300+ cloud providers and 30+ onramps across the U.S. and Canada. We look forward to future business initiatives with Console Connect.”

The Cologix and Console Connect partnership enables Cologix’s customers to securely and directly connect to Console Connect’s Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) platform, providing accessibility to the international connectivity of 850+ data centers in over 50 countries. Specifically, within Cologix’s TOR1 facility, businesses can access 150+ unique networks with low latency connectivity powered by high-count, diverse and scalable fiber. The facility also delivers access to Cologix’s four additional data centers in Toronto with direct onramps to cloud services and a network-dense ecosystem with 200+ Canadian-based networks.

The Console Connect self-service portal allows customers to quote, order, deliver and manage their network connections to all major hyperscale cloud providers, such as Amazon Web Services® Direct Connect, Alibaba Cloud, Google Cloud Interconnect, IBM Cloud, Microsoft® Azure ExpressRoute and more.

“We’re thrilled to grow the availability of our extensive and resilient platform with Cologix in Canada. First, in Montréal, and now, Toronto,” said Michael Glynn, Senior Vice President of Digital Automated Innovation at Console Connect.
