Permanently available and dedicated XTAC resources work on the fault clearance until a solution or workaround has been found.
Important functions in the network are considerably impaired; the failure has extensive influence on the production surroundings. There is a direct service impact or partial business impact.
Dedicated resources work on the fault clearance until a solution or a workaround has been found from Monday through Friday
between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Some functions in the network are defective; however, these do not have a serious influence on the production surroundings. There is an indirect service impact, but no business impact.
Available XTAC resources work on the fault clearance from Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
There is an enquiry regarding configuration, software or a feature of a product. There is no service or business impact.
