TIME First Telco In Malaysia To Achieve MEF 3.0 Certification

TIME puts Malaysia on the world map by earning this important recognition for delivering consistent, high-quality Ethernet services

Shah Alam, 3 JANUARY 2019 – TIME dotCom (“TIME”) announced today that it is now the first telco in Malaysia and the second service provider in the world to achieve the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) 3.0 certification.

Companies certified under MEF 3.0 are held to more stringent quality and configuration standards, such as lower acceptable margins for packet loss and latency. Thus, TIME is now recognised as one of only four service providers worldwide that are certified as being compliant with these standards.

With 5G and Long Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-A) technology on the rise, many mobile telcos are beginning the transition to these new standards. Under MEF 3.0, TIME’s network is verified as being capable of supporting 5G and LTE-A connectivity, particularly for mobile backhaul networks where fibre cables connect the core network of a telco to the subnetworks on the fringe.

“We are very proud to be among the first in the world to receive this certification and become part of the MEF 3.0 ecosystem, which acknowledges TIME’s efforts to keep abreast of technological innovation and deliver dynamic products and services,” said Ang Thing Jiun, Chief Technology Officer at TIME dotCom.

“Our customers can rest assured that they are receiving scalable, stable Ethernet services that are compatible with a global standard and that will support them through the evolution of network technology in the future,” he said.
