4. Charges

Charges are extremely attractive for the level of service provided. Will you be happy for your unit to stay uncovered and suffer a breakdown?

Charges are based on the the number of switches covered with a charge ceiling of £1000. The charge per switch falls into two categories.

Category 1 - £100 per annum

4.1. Other items

SFP modules and Allied Telesyn AT-MC101XL Fibre media converters are not covered but can be provided at cost (normally between £40-£100)

4.2. Points to note

For all Cisco devices to be covered we will require a copy of the original sales invoice. This is required by Cisco in the event of any returns procedure.

For larger networks, and anything that falls out of the above specifications, please contact us.

Where the devices are different from the models we normally cover (and subject to agreement with OUCS) equivalent Cisco/HP/3Com units can be substituted to cover breakdowns. Repairs to the failed unit would have to be the responsibility of the Department or College. New switches may be added to the scheme if there is demand.
