Submitting a Service Request
Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4
service requests. (S3 and S4 service requests are those in which your network is
minimally impaired or for which you require product information.) After you
describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool provides recommended
solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your
service request is assigned to a Cisco engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is
located at this URL:
http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/servicerequest
For S1 or S2 service requests or if you do not have Internet access, contact the
Cisco TAC by telephone. (S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your
production network is down or severely degraded.) Cisco engineers are assigned
immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business operations
running smoothly.
To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:
Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)
EMEA: +32 2 704 55 55
USA: 1 800 553-2447

Definitions of Service Request Severity
To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has
established severity definitions.
Severity 1 (S1)—Your network is “down,” or there is a critical impact to your
business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around
the clock to resolve the situation.
Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or
significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by
inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time
resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Obtaining Additional Publications and Information
Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most
business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources
during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.
Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product
capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your
business operations.
