Industry expert Stephen Wilcox founded the company in 2007 with a vision of making connectivity easier and pioneering the concept of one simple solution – a single port with many connections.
IX Reach emerged from an overwhelming need from the industry, for simple network expansion solutions into new markets, and a global ‘single point of contact’ wholesale carrier who could bundle solutions – particularly remotely peering at major Internet Exchanges – without the need for the customer to manage and invest heavily in new infrastructure.
IX Reach was acquired 2015 and was under the Console family along with Allegro and IIX brands becoming Console Network Solutions. In 2017, IX Reach’s founder acquired the network business from Console and renamed back to IX Reach, and going back to their roots focussing once more on being a leading connectivity provider, remote peering provider and direct connect solutions to the cloud.
IX Reach has cultivated an unrivalled partner network of key Internet Exchanges; data centers, network, and cloud IaaS/PaaS operators, while steadily expanding the network globally in order to continue providing customers with all the benefits of one solution for their Layer 1, Layer 2 and Layer 3 network connectivity requirements.
