Availability and resilience
The Wi-Fi SLA is broken down into 2 parts; an availability SLA for the Core Services or a fault on the on-site hardware, either the LAN switches or the APs. The customer LAN cabling is not part of the SLA, the reason being is that in most large outside venues where this services is intended, the cabling is often run in high-up locations that cannot be reached without specialist equipment such as a cherry picker.
For the Service Level to be applicable there must be at least 2 Access Points deployed per site.
The overall SLA offered is 99%
|Approach to resilience||
A minimum of 2 (two) Access Points (unmeshed) must be provided to each site to ensure resiliency at the site in order to meet the SLA's.
Dependent upon hardware chosen there will be resiliency at any AP control layer (physical or virtual).
|Outage reporting||The whole service, including Access Points are proactively monitored by Level 3. Customers can also view the status of their AP's from the customer portal which will show if they are up, down or how busy each AP is.|
