Globe Telecom says it is the first carrier in the Philippines to have its Carrier Ethernet offerings certified by the Metro Ethernet Forum as conforming to MEF 9 service-provider specifications.

MEF 9 checked whether Globe's Ethernet Line, Ethernet Virtual Private Line, and Ethernet LAN services conformed to the MEF's own standards at what is called the UNI, or User Network Interface.

The testing process itself, which was conducted by the test laboratory Iometrix, consisted of a lab test, where the service provider builds out a service infrastructure in a lab for initial verification, and a field test, where more tests were performed on production circuits.

Globe Business has been offering Carrier Ethernet services since 2000. Globe says its IP-Converged Optical Network (ICON) is the Philippines' first and only pure IP MPLS network.
