Recommended Technology Platform

To ensure we fulfill our service commitments to you, there are essential hardware and software standards you'll need to meet. We regularly review and update these standards to keep pace with technological advancements and retirements.

Should your existing setup fall short of these minimum requirements before your agreement begins, we're here to devise a plan that elevates your network to meet our criteria. Recognizing the constraints of timing and budget, we pledge our support towards upgrading any non-compliant components.

However, if support is requested for items not meeting our minimum standards, the decision to charge for such support or to refuse support altogether rests solely with us.
