At MWC, Console Connect, a global network-as-a-service (NaaS) platform, has launched what it calls the world’s first private connectivity solution to help businesses dynamically and securely route traffic directly between devices and clouds globally without traversing the public internet.
With IoT devices and traffic becoming increasingly vulnerable to network attacks, Edge SIM, as the solution is called, addresses the enterprise need for secure access between devices and clouds on a global scale, ensuring mobile traffic is not exposed to the public internet.
Businesses can use Edge SIM and the Console Connect NaaS platform to create their own private virtual ‘mesh’ network between devices, clouds, applications, office locations, data centres and other network endpoints.
Using the Console Connect management portal, or via its API, businesses can click and connect edge locations in real time, removing the complexity of network configuration and management, thus making it simple to scale IoT projects globally.
With coverage across over 180 countries worldwide, Edge SIM supports multinational organisations that need to securely transfer large volumes of data between their connected devices and the cloud while providing greater visibility, security and control over their global IoT assets.
The solution also caters to IoT applications that transfer business-sensitive data between multiple regions involving asset management, logistics, payments networks and more.
Edge SIM connects devices directly to any of the world’s largest cloud platforms and offers a simple pricing model. With the addition of a Console Connect Access Port, businesses can also dynamically link their enterprise locations and network environments, including data centres, wide area networks (WAN) and last mile access.
A range of other on-demand connectivity services are available via a single Access Port, including premium business internet service, remote peering, and user-to-user connectivity.
