Your membership in PERS is portable, meaning that once you become a Tier One or Tier Two member, you remain a member if you later leave one participating employer to work in another qualifying position with another participating employer.

 Tier 1 carrier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Many networks incorrectly claim to be a Tier 1 simply due to ignorance of the term, leading to a corruption of meaning in which the vast majority of those claiming to be a Tier 1 network are not.
The issue is further complicated by the non-disclosure agreements which surround almost all Tier 1 level peering; this makes it difficult for carriers to officially confirm or deny the existence of peering, the physical connection of two backbone networks to allow data to flow between them.
Tier 1 networks are often noted for their extremely restrictive peering policies, which are generally regarded as being intended to set the bar for peering so high that no new networks can meet them.
