Infrastructure Managed Services

See how each tier stacks up

Choose the ASSIST, PARTNER or MANAGED tabs for details about included services, or select COMPARE for a side-by-side view of each tier.

Assist

If your agency is staffed to manage and maintain its own equipment, ASSIST gives you two key services, plus available options, to reduce the burden on your team to “do it all” and boost confidence in your equipment.

Premium Technical Support

Your community relies on you 24/7/365, so you need critical communications support around the clock throughout the year. If a system goes down at 2 a.m., we’ll provide technical expertise to answer questions, resolve issues and get you up and running. As a Premium Technical Support (PTS) customer, your call becomes our top priority. That means:

  • Priority access to Level 3 and 4 support for both L3Harris and third‑party software and hardware support assets
  • Guaranteed one‑hour emergency and two‑hour non‑emergency response times, around the clock, throughout the year
  • Coordination with on‑site technical resources
  • Total access to our Tech‑Link Website filled with resources and product details for fast, easy answers and fixes
  • Management and license renewal of third-party software used in the VIDA System

Standard Repair Service

L3Harris equipment is rugged and reliable. Even so, repairs are sometimes necessary. With this cost-effective program, we’ll help you budget for the unexpected and get fast, factory repairs. Standard Repair Services are optional in the Assist and Partner Tiers and standard in the Managed Tier. For even greater confidence, on‑demand services and annual preventive maintenance services are available for an additional charge.

  • Budget for unexpected repairs
  • Get service from the experts at an affordable rate
  • Covers components such as infrastructure, dispatch and site equipment

Security Update Management Service+ (SUMS+)

Third Party Software is a critical part of today’s all-IP Public Safety communications infrastructure. It also presents a security vulnerability for your operation as they are the target of cybersecurity attacks. As threats evolve, frequent patches for diverse operating systems are released by vendors. Our SUMS+ program provides:

  • Testing and automatic management of third-party operating system patches for multiple platforms and applications
  • Reduction of compliance risks and installation times
  • Access to IAVM’s (Information Assurance Vulnerability Management) tables on InfoCenter—get regular IAVM alerts and Software Release notes featuring clear compatibility and installation details you can view on a single console

On-Demand Services (Available Option)

There may be a situation when service is needed that goes beyond the level you’ve selected. You have equipment damaged by vandals, abuse or neglect. Your area gets hit with a weather‑related event and there are damages beyond human control. In these hard‑to‑predict situations, On‑Demand Services become important. Our experienced team:

  • Quickly assesses your needs
  • Provides a fast‑track quote for time and materials
  • Resolves your needs as soon as possible
