Telco Watch Globe Issue 1

September is good month for telecom consumers. Globe Telecom did not just recently open their new building to the public, but they also launched a slew of new services.

Here are the top stories from Globe Telecom:

Globe Tower is One of the High-Tech Buildings in the Philippines

Globe recently opened their state-of-the-art building to the public. And one of the core features of the building is the wireless service solution, which addresses the need for dedicated seamless indoor coverage and location-based services and applications. This was made possible because of Globe’s partnership with Huawei Technologies.

According to Gerhard Tan, Head of Globe’s Radio Network Engineering, “In order to guarantee an optimal network performance and seamless customer experience, Globe has adopted an industry-leading in-building solution using Huawei’s industry-leading software defined radio (SDR) wireless access technology.”

“With this IBS solution all Globe employees and visitors will enjoy up to 70 Mbps data download speed anywhere inside The Globe Tower.  Partnering with Huawei and deploying its fully integrated in-building solution guarantees optimum network performance, highlighting the company’s superiority in mobile broadband services,” Tan also said.

The Globe Tower, which will be the main hub of company transactions and the new home for its employees, will bring together more than 4,000 of the company’s close to 6,000 employees.

The structure is also aligned with the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) standards, a green building rating system from the United States Green Building Council, in line with the company’s commitment to corporate sustainability.
