PRESS RELEASE: Globe pioneers launch of video message service in the Philippines


In another Philippine first, Globe Telecom is pioneering the launch of Video Message Service (VMS), another breakthrough service that allow users to engage more with their mobile phones as well as their friends.

 

Touted as one of the most interactive media channels available for mobile phone users today, VMS allows users to create, view, upload and share video content through their handsets. With VMS, subscribers can send and receive video messages just like text messages.  It also allows users to connect with their favorite celebrities by following their video blogs and music videos, watching their video clips, or being updated with the latest happenings and events.  iPhone and Android users can enjoy the VMS application by downloading it for free from the App Store or Android Market. BlackBerry and Symbian phones will be supported very soon.

 

Enhancing the way people communicate, VMS is perfect for personal messages, allowing users to connect via video instead of text or voice messaging.  Upon access of the VMS application, the VMS interactive menu will be installed on subscribers’ mobile phones, allowing them to record a video message, send or view a peer-to-peer (P2P) video, or download video clips of their favorite shows or celebrity video interviews and blogs.

 

To bring the innovative service closer to mobile phone users in the country, Globe has partnered with Ironroad Manila for the VMS platform and GMA New Media, Inc. (NMI) for exclusive VMS content in the form of short clips of GMA TV shows and celebrity video blogs. Subscribers can also follow local and foreign video bloggers and acquire premium content offered by VMS broadcasters around the world.

 

As a special treat, VMS be will available for free to subscribers of My Super Surf Plan, the company’s newest unlimited postpaid data plans. Under the Globe My Super Surf Plan, VMS users can enjoy creating and sharing mobile videos on their favorite gadget until July 31, 2011. This new service is even more exciting when used with Globe Telecom’s 4G mobile network which utilizes the global standard HSPA+, allowing faster and more seamless access to various types of video content on the mobile phone.

 

“We are very excited to bring another innovation to our subscribers with the launch of the VMS. Through VMS, we are giving our subscribers another opportunity to enjoy their mobile phones apart from texting, calling or doing mobile internet. With this new technology, we are strengthening the connections and bonds of every Filipino by providing them yet another exciting and innovative platform to share their precious moments with each other,” said Joanna Africa, Head for Portfolio Management of Globe Telecom.

 

Apart from the partnership, Globe will also be supporting the launch with a massive campaign that involves on-ground and experiential activities to allow subscribers to fully enjoy the VMS experience.

Globe, first to achieve MEF certification in the Philippines, announces MEF 14 status


Commitment to World-Class Carrier Ethernet Services

Globe Telecom, the first Philippine carrier to be certified by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF 9), adds MEF 14 to its growing list of certifications. MEF is the defining body for Carrier Ethernet, which aims to accelerate its adoption globally. Globe was also the first Philippine carrier to join MEF and its over 150 members that includes the world’s top service providers and major equipment vendors, back in 2009.

With enterprises operating in multiple locations around the world they require interconnection among their service providers as they expect the same service function and performance in all their branches. Carrier Ethernet is currently the leading technology for mission-critical, real-time services including VoIP, disaster recovery, conferencing and enterprise applications.

Globe supports its Carrier Ethernet services with enough bandwidth and capacity to provide for the needs of BPOs, multinational companies and large enterprises with foreign affiliates.  Only Globe has a purpose built, dedicated network for high-speed SDH (Synchronous Digital Hierarchy), Ethernet and wavelength services. Its DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) network carries fast Ethernet services that are pre-provisioned in key buildings and IT parks where most businesses locate.  A dedicated data network enables focused servicing of enterprise customers, brings operational efficiencies to improve service level agreements, and enables network management systems to enhance monitoring and after sales support.

To establish a solid foundation for Carrier Ethernet ubiquity and interoperability, Globe passed numerous compliance tests independently conducted by the MEF-approved certification test laboratory Iometrix.  The MEF 9 ensures the conditions required for delivery of services have specific Ethernet User Network Interface and Ethernet Virtual Connection service attributes so businesses get seamless end-to-end Carrier Ethernet offerings.  The MEF 14 includes performance criteria which prepares carriers’ for Global Interconnect, the standards-based interconnection with other service providers, and assures enterprises that the Carrier Ethernet services they get perform within international service level standards.

“Globe has been known as a pioneer in the telco industry and true to form we are proud to have initiated MEF certification in Carrier Ethernet offerings in the Philippines. We have embraced MEF standards to deliver reliable, high quality and technically consistent Ethernet services to our customer base,” said Jesus C. Romero, Head of Enterprise Segments at Globe Business.

He added, “We remain committed to our thrust of achieving excellence in service delivery as we continue to raise the level of quality we provide enterprises. The MEF 14 certification came on the heels of our MEF 9 certification, which demonstrates our relentless efforts to fulfill our brand promise of offering superior customer experience.”

With its MEF certifications, Globe assures enterprise customers that its Carrier Ethernet services measure up to international specifications accepted globally. These also demonstrate the commitment of Globe to MEF’s mission to promote Carrier Ethernet interoperability and deployment worldwide.
