Engineering Services Agreement (ESA)

An Engineering Services Agreement (ESA) with FirstLight enables you to focus your staff on supporting the critical business applications that drive your business and keep your operations running smoothly and efficiently. An ESA augments talent and frees up staff.

We see our ESA offering as a contract between FirstLight and our client for Professional Engineering Services. Certified and experienced, we have engineers who can work on all telecommunication services.

Service Level Agreements (SLA) are an important component of an ESA. FirstLight has adopted an SLA aware culture and we have added to that culture four other components that contribute to a successful ESA:

  • PMO
  • Warranty Administration

Access

Coverage

  • Service Requests
  • Break & Fix
  • Incident Management
  • Problem Management

Technology

  • Service

FirstLight knows the importance of Monitoring as part of a successful ESA program. We have implemented multiple SolarWinds® modules and invested in hardware, software, and engineering talent within this robust platform over the last 10 years. As a company, we hold every Cisco certification and specialization available to a premier partner.  Training is a critical component of our success. Our state-of-the-art Network Operations Center is a 24x7x365 US based staff with highly certified and highly qualified technicians and engineers.
