Juniper PSS Services

Juniper Services is a fully integrated element of the Juniper Partner Advantage Program (JPA). The result is two Service Specializations: Support Services and Professional Services. This reference guide will focus on the key elements of the Support Services Specialization, and IPNet is PSS Services Partner.

The Partner Support Services Specialization addresses customer needs for maintenance and advanced support services. It enables partners to offer a broader set of reactive and proactive support services and excel in the delivery of these services in the Build and Operate phases of the Juniper Infrastructure Lifecycle.

The Partner Support Services Specialization provides you with the opportunity to promote and sell your own brand of maintenance support to your customers. This specialization gives you maximum flexibility to provide your customers with a single source problem resolution process. With this specialization, you receive access to Level 3 technical support, software updates and upgrades, hardware replacement options, and Service Partner Management from Juniper Networks. This specialization provides a way for you to leverage Juniper’s support organization and infrastructure to augment your support capabilities.

The Juniper Networks Partner Support Services Specialization Includes four key elements:

• Eligibility

• Metrics

• Enablement

• Rewards

Juniper has formulated the following support offerings (sometimes called “back-end support”) that are available to partners with the Partner Support Services Specialization:

– Partner Support (hardware and software maintenance)

– Advanced Customer Support (ACS – higher level of maintenance)

As an authorized Support Services Specialist, you buy the back end support from Juniper (or in some countries an authorized Juniper Distributor), build your branded offerings, and then you deliver to your customers. Of course, you always have the option to resell Juniper Networks Services (those delivered by Juniper) to complement your offerings and meet your customers’ needs.
