What we do

We are a global software-defined interconnection company, headquartered in Silicon Valley, California.

Our Console platform enables programmable interconnection between networks that allow customers to gain more control, improve security, optimize network performance and extend network reach across the globe.

Console was created to change the way enterprises connect to their customers, vendors, and partners. Console’s enterprise software and interconnection platform enables both network-to-network and enterprise-to-enterprise collaboration globally. The Console platform provides enhanced network security, improved performance, and faster business-to-business direct connect. For more information, visit http://www.console.to.

In March 2015, IIX acquired IX Reach Limited, further expanding its global interconnection footprint into more than 150 Points of Presence (PoPs) across North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. IIX is privately held and backed by New Enterprise Associates (NEA), Formation 8, DOT Capital, Drew Perkins, and AME Cloud Ventures.
