Console Connect launches IoT connectivity solution that bypasses the internet

Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) platform, Console Connect, has launched what it says is 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 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 for 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, including AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud, IBM Cloud and Alibaba. It offers a simple pricing model that combines usage-based mobile connectivity with bandwidth-based cloud connectivity. Payment can be managed via the Console Connect platform, with contracts for as little as 30 days.


“Critical IoT projects are expanding globally,” said Marc Halbfinger of Console Connect. “The network automation available through Edge SIM gives businesses cloud-based agility and control over their connected devices worldwide with speed and security. This is a game-changer for how businesses orchestrate private connectivity for their IoT projects.”
