If you have purchased a Giganet connectivity service that includes a router, switch, and/or modem, then this hardware is supported by our technical support teams for the duration of your service contract with us. This includes software and hardware support.
Coverage is provided for:
- Juniper SRX3xx, EXxxx with our ELITE, IGNITE or MPLS services
- Zyxel router/modem
- Technicolour router/modem
- Associated SFP modules connected to the above devices
By default, all hardware, including hardware for our ELITE/IGNITE leased line services, is provided with a next business day advanced RMA service provided that the support case is raised before 3pm on a working day.
Leased line hardware RMA
Although our underlying ELITE/IGNITE leased line services are provided with 24x7x365 service, with a 5/6 hour fix SLA, this refers to the fibre circuit, logical configuration and our core network, and not a single router if only one has been specified for the service.
For customer that require the most resilient and highly available service, we recommend two routers/devices are configured in a High Availability (HA) mode. Please consult your account manager or our support teams for more information about this.
If two devices are used, then the 5/6 hour fix SLA will apply for all fault conditions.
