Dedicated Colt Access Explained

  • Most of the Cloud Services Providers have separate access points (“PoP”) from the data centres (“regions”) in which the services are housed.
    Colt provides direct fibre connectivity to the Cloud Service Providers PoPs in Europe, Asia Pacific and the US, which simplifies speeds of provisioning, and gives optimum traffic routes for customers.

  • Colt Dedicated Cloud Access service is also available On Demand to enhance and simplify the user experience. Thanks to SDN technology, our customers benefit from real-time ordering, provisioning a self-serve portal.

  • Colt is a direct connectivity partner with the main players, including Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, IBM, Oracle, Alibaba and VMWare (others available on request)

  • For customers who prefer to have connectivity to the cloud delivered on a traditional way, not through a online ordering portal (Cloud On Demand), Colt has it’s DCA Ethernet service available since 2014. Both connectivity solutions make use of the worldwide Colt owned IQ packet network.
