When you sign a support service contract with us we will take you through our on-boarding process where we will review the as-is status of your network, create a serialised inventory and document the network. We will take back up configurations of the network which will be held in our secure environment so that in the event of a hardware failure we can maximise the turnaround in getting your environment back to normal. All your hardware and software will be backed into Cisco on hardware/software contracts that provide access to iOS, firmware and software updates and upgrades, hardware replacement and access to Cisco TAC and the Arkphire-Bootstrap helpdesk.
In the event of a hardware failure on your network, we will call a replacement unit off from Cisco which is delivered in line with your agreed service level and one of our team will meet the device on site to facilitate the replacement applying back up configurations to ensure that there is no delay in getting you back online.
We offer a wide range of service levels depending on our clients’ support requirements including, 8x5xNBD, 8x5x4, 24x7x4, 24x7x2. We can tailor our service level agreements to meet our customers’ needs if they have unusual operating requirements.
