Service Request and Faults

Help Desk

5G Network provides Wavelength Service clients with a priority help desk facility that provides a single point of contact to knowledgeable staff for all client service issues.

5G Networks help desk logs and initiates work on all action requests and fault calls that are logged by the client or that arise out of the active monitoring (in-house only) process. All actions that result in infrastructure or configuration changes are carried out in accordance with the standard 5G Networks change management process.

5G Networks help desk provides first-line resolution of requests and faults and maintains ownership of all logged issues through to resolution, including interaction with any 5G Networks engineers, client or third- party people working to resolve issues requiring second-line or third-line resolution.

The 5G Networks Help Desk can be contacted through the following methods;

Contact Mode

Email wholesale.support@5gn.com.au
Wholesale 5GN Portal (to log a ticket) https://portal.5gnetworks.com.au/support/

During support ticket logging, the Help Desk will determine the incident and/ or MAC requests criticality and priority. The response and target resolution time will be determined by this priority (incidents only)

Priority 2 Service Degradation. Service unusable resulting in high impact to business
Priority 3 Minor degradations, however, services still usable and/ or curtail aspect of service unavailable.
Priority 4 No or very minimal impact. Intermittent or Minor issues.

Faults

All faults that may occur are directed to the 5G Networks help desk in the first instance. The help desk enters the fault details into the fault system and gives the client a unique fault number for referencing during the fault rectification progress.

In most cases faults can be fixed remotely by 5G Networks Engineers using network access. In cases where faults cannot be fixed remotely, 5G Networks staff or service agents are dispatched to site to repair or replace faulty items.

5G Networks uses its own staff, third (supply partners) party or contracted service agents to provide on-site support for equipment that forms part of the client’s Wavelength Service.

Once a fault is cleared, 5G Networks contacts the client to confirm the Wavelength Service is fully operational and available for use.

*Third Party – 5GN staff will liaise with third party and will update the customer
