  • To be verbalized: traffic to PLDT routes to USSame case with all ISPs in PHGlobe & PLDT with very minimal peering BW – only used for selected trafficNo developments (yet) for in in peering interconnection
  • ESP – from traditional BW subscription to IP port only, IPL + IP, Freeway IPCreates new variants to suite the dynamic customer requirementsNetwork enhancements:Implement dual core router for each of the 5 BEACON sites for redundancy and to lessen impact of SW upgrade activities
  • Note the strategic position of the Philippines amongst the neighboring countriesNetwork enhancements:3x10G EAC International PoP Capacity Upgrade at HKG, SNG & JPN (end August 2012)SJC available by 2013implement OOB management and duplicated the routers and switches
  • Network enhancements:Roll out of Metro Ethernet switches to the identified 145 BAX Sites as alternative approach in serving ethernet requirement of customers.Icon Dual Core - Implement shelf redundancy for each of the core site considering physical and logical set up and upgrade the control module capacity
  • Globe has the biggest Internet Capacity in the Philippines, 200++Gbps of IP port capacity
  • IP Peering Perspective from a Philippine Carrier

    1. 1. IP Peering perspective from a PH Carrier Asia Peering Forum-Manila 23 August 2012 Francisco “Cocoy” Claraval IV Head – Business Products & Services Globe Telecom, AS4775
    2. 2. Agenda • Who we are • Internet Landscape • Enabling Network Infrastructure – Domestic Network – International and Cable System Expansion – IP Network • In Summary
    3. 3. Leading market position Strong financial performance World-class corporate governance • - A full-service telecommunications company with 6K+ employees, 32M+ mobile subscribers, 1.6M+ broadband subscribers, 400K+ landline subscribers, 750K+ retailers and distributors and business partners. - Has its own international data & voice gateways, cable landing stations (Nasugbu and Ballesteros), domestic fiber backhaul and access network (data, fiber, 3G/HSDPA, WiMax)  Margins among the highest in Asia-Pacific region  Credit metrics reflect prudent balance sheet management  Generates high dividend yields – Pay-out now at 75% of prior year’s core net income  Consistently rated one of the best managed companies in the Philippines  Strong and committed shareholders from Ayala Corporation and Singapore Telecom Who is Globe Telecom?  Market leader in wireless postpaid market  Over 38% share of wireless industry revenues  Major player in corporate voice, data, and broadband
    4. 4. The Globe Way •OUR VALUES: We put our Customers first. Our people make the difference. We act with integrity. We care like an owner. We keep things simple. To us, it's be fast or be last. I love Globe. Together, we make great things possible.
    5. 5. Globe’s First • First IPLC over Fiber Optic Submarine Cable • First to launch ISDN • First Telco to be an ISP – First to launch DSL • First GSM Operator • First Ethernet Service • First IP/VPN service (IP over ATM) • First next-gen data service over DWDM (BAX) • First to offer public Wifi access and VoIP over Wifi Service (WizPhone) • First WiMesh Deployment (in Boracay) • First IP/MPLS backbone (ICON) • First HSDPA service (Globe Mobile Broadband) • First VPLS Service, first International launch • First Multi-channel delivery platform • First to enable micro payments over a mobile phone via G-Cash • First to deploy WIMAX • First PH Carrier with International Data PoPs (5) • First to deploy ROADM • First to offer M2M • First to offer Cloud Services • First to offer WPL • First to offer multi cable private line solution • Only PH carrier to participate in IPV6 Day Globe Continues to be at the forefront o f technology – to enable Business with solutions that fit
    6. 6. Market Drivers – Philippine Enterprises • Applications used by enterprise customers need more bandwidth • The need to keep the cost structures down for WAN services • Limited in-house technical resources forces the need to keep network services simple 2006 2007 2008 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 Ethernet Revenue Projections 2006 2007 2008 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 Ethernet CAGR approx. at 39%
    7. 7. Internet Landscape – PH Traffic Source: local traffic profiler Traffic Profile -IP traffic is still predominantly US-centric -Asian traffic continuous to grow – specifically Singapore, Malaysia & Korea -CDNs / US Carriers bringing content closer to Asia -European traffic growing, (route via U.S.), -PH with the biggest Internet penetration growth – more demand for Internet BW Traffic Growth Source: http://blog.smartling.com/blog/bid/127532/Developing-Countries-Driving-Global-Internet-Growth Source: http://www.internetworldstats.com/asia.htm#ph PH has 93% FB penetration vs internet users
    8. 8. Internet Landscape – Behavior Source:Manchurian 2012 In The Philippines, Majority of Internet users at 62% connect wirelessly Laptops still present the majority of Wifi connections. (Globally, Ipad dominates the Tablets Business prefer wired connectivity (for stablility) Wireless connectivity is driven by mobility and the availability of WIFI enabled devices and locations.
    9. 9. Internet Landscape – Local IX *Government policy to peer via PhOpen IX (answer to Domestic traffic localization) Note: 15-23% of all Internet is Domestic Source:The-Need-for-a-True-National-Internet-Exchange-Philippines-V1-2 No common IX where all ISPs are connected ISPs operate their own IXP ISPs peer directly (selected ISPs) Traffic localized - through inter-ISP peering sessions Peering Policy – Inter-AS only (with special exceptions) IXP list IX Name ISP GIX Globe PHIX PLDT NGIX Bayan MIX ETPI VIX ePLDT PhOpenIX DOST-ASTI COMIX Comclark CORE PHNet
    10. 10. Internet Landscape – Global IX Source:http://bgp.he.net/country/PH Top 3 ISPs share majority of the country’s IP peering connectivity and traffic Globe leads in both IPv4 and IPv6 peer connectivity Carriers Globe Bayan ETPI Digitel IPvG IXP/AS N 4775 6648 9658 9497 23930 US US-LA Any2IX P P P US-LA LAIIX P P US-SEA SIX P Asia JP Equinix P HK HKIX P P P P Equinix P SG SOX P Equinix P Count 5 2 1 3 3 Source:peeringdb PH Carriers has expanded connectivity to Global Internet eXchange Points (IXPs) Multiple Regionals Connections complements diversity and more direct connectivity Globe has the most number of Global IXP connections
    11. 11. Internet Landscape – Peering initiatives On top of the initiative to set-up a common local IX… Draft / agree on the policies & Neutral(capable/strategic) location *interim – accommodate upgrade of existing connections share costs (if any) Open peering policy vs inter-AS (flexible peering policy) ISP1 ISP1 ISP2 ISP1
