Globe Business has just achieved another milestone, as the first in Asia to earn the highly significant Metro Ethernet Forum – Carrier Ethernet (MEF CE) 2.0 certification on March 20, 2013, putting it among the the top service providers globally which can now deliver added benefits to its customers by matching their specific users’ application needs to their MEF services with specific Service-Level Agreements.

Head of Globe Business Jesus Romero said of the company’s latest accolade: “Being the first not only in the Philippines but in Asia to receive certification for Carrier Ethernet 2.0 is not only an important achievement for us but it also augurs well for the local ICT industry. It reflects our company’s genuine commitment to deliver world-class and best-in-class services to our customers.”

As one of the first in the industry to offer premium-grade solutions in the Philippines, Globe Business is currently the only Asian service provider, and fourth in the world to achieve the MEF CE 2.0 Certification with its point-to-point E-Line (EPL and EVPL) and multipoint-to-multipoint E-LAN services, strengthening its Ethernet services’ MEF 9 and MEF 14 certifications or MEF CE 1.0 which define Ethernet service functionality and service performance, respectively.

These abilities enhance Globe Business’ end-to-end service Operation, Administration and Maintenance capabilities for the three-level Class of service and Tier 1 service performance as they cement their position as the top choice through meeting world-class standards.Globe Business Head of Enterprise Segments Grace Castillo assured that “with our MEF CE2.0 certified services, we can deploy our products and solutions much faster, provide guarantee to customers of globally-compliant services which will work seamlessly with their network and allow end-to-end visibility to perform faster issue identification and resolution as well as ensure SLA delivery.”

“What this means in terms of Classes of Service is that our customers can run multiple and critical applications while we assist and support them in prioritizing which ones can pass through Ethernet traffic. Likewise, we can conduct non-intrusive tests with added testing parameters leading to quicker turn-around time in pinpointing issues and resolutions, less service downtime, ensure SLAs and improve after-sales support. This gives them a definite advantage when subscribing to our MEF CE 2.0-certified Ethernet services,” she added.
