Twilio launches Interconnect service, eyes regulated enterprises

Twilio Interconnect is a service that will connect the cloud communications platform securely to private enterprise networks.

Twilio has launched a private connection between its cloud communications service and an enterprise's on-premise network called Twilio Interconnect.

The service is akin to a private cloud connection in a hybrid deployment. For Twilio, Interconnect can be a service that embeds it into more enterprise networks.

According to Twilio access via Interconnect can be provided via the following:

  • A physical high-speed connection to Twilio.
  • Multiprotocol Layer Switching, which will connect to Twilio via a private network.
  • Amazon Web Services through a connection on Amazon VPC for no additional cost.
  • Virtual private network, which connects to Twilio via a secure private tunnel.

With the service, Twilio will have more ways to support customers in regulated industries like healthcare and financial services.
