TM Wholesale, the wholesale arm of Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM), has signed a collaborative agreement with Globe Telecom (Globe), for a nationwide rollout of Globe’s co-branded gaming solution called Globe Gamer Grounds powered by Ember in the Philippines.
In a statement, TM Wholesale said the partnership will provide Globe with access to Swarmio’s plug-and-play Ember gaming platform that will enhance Globe’s gaming and esports services and bring it closer to its millions of mobile and broadband end users.
It said by leveraging TM’s established global network and infrastructure ecosystems, the platform enables Globe’s customers to enjoy ultra-low latency gaming experiences with faster download speeds.
As a digital solutions provider in the Philippines, Globe operates nationwide fixed-line and broadband networks throughout the country, serving over 86 million mobile customers.
Amar Huzaimi Md Deris, executive vice president of TM Wholesale said the company is thrilled to collaborate with Globe as the gaming and esports industry is now considered the world's biggest entertainment industry, with ASEAN gamers dominating the market.
“As a regional operator, TM Wholesale takes pride in making superior gaming experiences accessible to the industry via our wholesale offerings which provide a seamless and high-quality digital experience to users.
“This collaboration also aligns with our vision to create a more vibrant digital ecosystem throughout the region,” he added.
Ralph Aligada, head of Globe Games and Esports said with Globe's all-in-one gaming platform, the community of gamers will enjoy a seamless and high quality digital experience.
“We aim to excite all gamers regardless of age and skill level across the Philippines.
“We are hopeful that with this agreement, there will be more opportunities and innovative solutions that would benefit our gaming community and users in the country, perhaps even across the region,” he said.
Previously, TM Wholesale and Swarmio Media, a Canada-based gaming and e-sports technology company, established a partnership to provide accessible and high-quality digital gaming and esports services throughout Asean.
This partnership with Globe marks a breakthrough in TM’s collaboration with Swarmio Media, enhancing e-sports gaming and leveling up digital experiences for the Philippines and across the region.
