Partner-Provided Support

Partners may choose to provide their own support for their end customers. In this case, partners directly receive all support calls from the end customers and contact Megaport Support only for the most difficult Level 3 issues that the partner is unable to resolve.

Support Levels and Responsibilities

Before escalating an issue to Megaport, it is expected that partners provide Level 1 and 2 support to the end customers as defined in the table below.

The scope of support is limited to Megaport provided services. However, partners are required to investigate all potential contributing symptoms and components up to and beyond Megaport demarcations before escalating to Megaport at Level 3.

Issues upstream from Megaport within a cloud provider network or other cloud are out of scope for Megaport Support and should be reported directly to the provider’s support team.

Support Level Assistance Scope Issues Covered
Level 1 Basic help desk resolution and service desk delivery Support for basic customer issues such as solving usage problems and fulfilling service desk requests that need IT involvement.

If no solution is available, level 1 personnel escalate incidents to a higher level.
