Metro Optic to Offer Direct Access to Console’s Software and Interconnection Platform

Montréal, Québec – Metro Optic announced today that the company has joined the Console NSP Partner Program to provide customers’ access to Console, the enterprise software and interconnection platform that is changing the way businesses directly connect to their customers, vendors, and partners.

The Console NSP Partner Program enables network service providers (NSPs) to offer customers direct access to Console for network-to-network and enterprise-to-enterprise collaboration globally. Upon establishing a network to network interface (NNI) with a Console Node in one or more multiple global regions, the NSP Partner is able to offer customers direct access to Console with secure speeds ranging from 10Mbps to 100Gbps that bypass the public Internet. The partner program also provides NSP partners marketing resources to highlight their direct access offering with Console.

The Console software and interconnection platform provides a secure, simple, and faster way for companies across the globe to directly connect to business-critical cloud providers, SaaS providers, and partners. Console’s network automation technology provides customers direct access to a global ecosystem without the configuration complexity.

“This collaboration allows Metro Optic to leverage a leading global ecosystem further enabling Metro Optic to provide global connectivity, interconnection and direct connections to its partners and Enterprise clients,” says Daniel Legault, CEO of Metro Optic. “As enterprise networks continue to leverage cloud based applications, Console addresses the limitations of accessing these critical networks over the public Internet and provides additional reach and security.”

“We are excited to welcome Metro Optic as one of the first NSP Partners in Canada who are joining Console,” says Al Burgio, CEO, Console. “Directly connecting to business-critical cloud services is fast becoming a necessity for enterprises and Metro Optic will enable enterprises to have direct access to our revolutionary Console platform.”
