The availability of Console Connect’s Software Defined Interconnection® platform at the NJFX carrier-neutral CLS facility in New Jersey immediately brings connectivity on-demand to NJFX customers, giving them instant and easy access to a global ecosystem of leading cloud, data center, SaaS, UcaaS, IX and IoT partners.

The automated Console Connect fabric is underpinned by PCCW Global’s industry-leading IP backbone and MPLS network which spans more than 3,000 cities and 160 countries.
Via the new PoP at the NJFX CLS, users can access PCCW Global’s MPLS network – either by using the Console Connect centralized port or by leveraging the open API platform – and directly reach major cities across Africa, Asia Pacific and Latin America. Financial organizations located at NJFX CLS can also leverage the secure, uncontended PCCW Global MPLS network to access financial markets globally.
Mr. Marc Halbfinger, Chief Executive Officer, PCCW Global, said, “Establishing a PoP at NJFX provides Console Connect and PCCW Global users with access to direct, low latency routes to major business hubs along the east coast. At the same time, we are excited to bring Console Connect’s on-demand global connectivity to NJFX customers, who can experience the agility and flexibility of Software Defined Interconnection®.”
