The Console Connect Software-Defined Interconnection® platform is now available at Cologix’s MTL7 data center in Montréal through a new point of presence (PoP).

Through its collaboration with Cologix, Console Connect is increasing its interconnection footprint across Canada with the availability of the automated platform to Cologix’s customers across all 20 Canadian data center locations. The collaboration enables Cologix’s Canadian customers to directly connect to Console Connect’s network-as-a-service (NaaS) platform, providing on-demand access to international connectivity across the Console Connect fabric to more than 650 data centers in over 50 countries.

Michael Glynn, vice president of digital automated innovation, Console Connect, said, “Console Connect is expanding its presence and reach across North America, enabling more businesses in the region to access and experience our on-demand networking services. I am pleased to welcome Cologix to the Console Connect ecosystem while growing the availability of our platform in Canada with our first PoP in Montréal.”

With Console Connect, Cologix’s Canadian customers can automate connectivity at the network edge to their customers, partners, and employees around the world. The platform supports the growing cloud connectivity requirements of enterprises in Canada. By using either the secure Console Connect web portal or its API, Cologix’s Canadian customers can quote, order, deliver and manage their network connections to leading cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services.

Laura Ortman, Cologix’s president & chief revenue officer, said, “We are delighted to collaborate with Console Connect to extend its reach across Canada and welcome Console Connect as a new platform to our MTL7 facility. We look forward to working together to enable our customers to connect to the cloud globally and support international business growth in Canada with greater access to carriers and customers.”
