SonicWall provides telephone and Web-based support, unlimited software/firmware updates and upgrades, and hardware replacement (RMA) for units with an active support agreement or warranty. In general, all SonicWall products include one (1) year of hardware warranty or the hardware duration provided under local law.
SonicWall's warranty and support agreements provide technical assistance during standard coverage hours, typically 8x5 or 8x5. A SonicWall technical specialist will work with you to remotely diagnose and identify software and hardware not performing to documented specifications. Support also includes general assistance regarding usage, implementation and configuration on a limited basis. SonicWall's warranty and support offerings do not include installation. If you need installation, SonicWall will refer you to a certified value-added reseller or offer you one of our consulting services.
Warranty and support agreements provide for replacement of failing hardware returned to SonicWall's factory. The replacement product may be new, or like-new. In the event of product obsolescence, SonicWall reserves the right to replace failing product with a product of like or better features and functionality.
