If I have a client who is using SMARTnet, do I have to do something in order to upgrade to Smart Net Total Care or it is made automatically? I will look forward your comments. Thanks!!!

Thank you for your question!

Your customer will be entitled to the Smart Net Total Care (SNTC) experience beginning in just a few weeks.  There is no need to upgrade if your customer currently has an active SMARTnet contract.  There are some steps that the customer will need to take to get access to Smart Net Total Care portal and reports.  The ability to self-service on-boarding to SNTC will be available in early August 2015.  This process will explain and walk the user thru all of the necessary steps.


Thanks Tnewell,

regarding some steps that the customoer will need to take to get access to SNTC portal and reports, What I understand is that, at the momment, there is not the process or steps that my customer should take, and I have to wait for the steps which will be eable in early August 2015. that's right?. Thanks for your comments.

Cisco Employee

That's right, no steps need to be taken now. If the customer wants to get acquainted with SNTC, they should visit this community to view training and review collateral.
