Service Level Agreemment (SLA)
Overview and Policy
ALO Guate is committed to provide the highest levels of service, performance, reliability and survivability of its SIP Trunking service for origination and termination in USA and international regions. As one measure of our ongoing commitment to delivering an excellent customer experience, ALO Guate provides a Service Level Agreement (SLA) covering our SIP Trunking Services and the ability for customers to determine adherence to these SLAs. If an Eligible Customer experiences performance that does not meet the applicable commitments set forth in this SLA, then ALO Guate will issue the Eligible Customer a Customer Service Credit.
This SLA describes the ALO Guate target network performance and service level metric for its SIP Trunking services. This SLA does not apply to Internet connectivity or local loop facilities provided by third parties, although failure and/or inadequate performance of such connectivity will affect the ALO Guate SIP trunking
Services delivered to the customer’s premises. Each of the following metrics and credits are applied on a per-affected SIP Trunk basis.
Service Level Agreement
The following Service Level Terms and Conditions are incorporated into the signed Service Agreement between you (“You” or “Customer”) and ALO Guate, LLC (“ALO Guate”). This Service Level Agreement constitutes the service level commitment of ALO Guate to you as a VoIP customer.
Please review this Service Level Agreement. By signing the Service Order referencing these terms, you agree to be bound by the Service Level Terms and Conditions set forth in this document.
If ALO Guatemakes a change to this Service Level Agreement that has a material impact on the Service, you will be provided notice of that change via updates to the SLA on ALO Guate's website. Your continued use of the Service following such notice constitutes your acceptance of those changes.

Local Loop – A “Local Loop” is the physical connection provided by a service provider (typically the traditional local telephone company) delivering physical connectivity between the customer and the ALO Guate network and service facilities.
Measurement Period – The measurement period begins on the first day of each month and ends on the last day of such month. For service initiation, the measurement period begins on the first day of the next full month after service is initiated. For service termination, the final measurement period is considered to be the last full month prior to service termination.
VoIP – A generic term for your Voice over IP Service.
VoIP Outage – A “VoIP Outage” is defined as the Customer’s inability to make or receive any ALO Guate managed calls because of application or network issues related solely to network elements directly under the exclusive control of ALO Guate.

Measurement and Calculation
“Service or Network Availability” is the ratio of time the core service and network is capable of accepting and delivering information to the total time in the Measurement Period. Service and Network vailability is expressed as a percentage. The calculation for Service and Network Availability is: SUM of (Total Minutes in Measurement Period – Total Minutes of Downtime in Measurement Period) X 100% Total Minutes in Measurement Period.

The following shall be excluded from any service or network outage time when calculating the Service and Network Availability:
- Service and/or network downtime during scheduled maintenance windows of ALO Guate or its vendors

- All Customer Premise Equipment (“CPE”), whether or not provided by ALO Guate

If a significant change in the ETTR occurs, ALO Guate will attempt to provide an update to the ETTR to the Customer.
Measurement and Calculation
Elapsed time is measured from the time a particular trouble ticket is opened by ALO Guate to the time ALO Guate attempts to contact the Customer with a status update of the trouble reported.

Mean Time to Repair
Service Level Commitment
ALO Guate is committed to maintaining a maximum of a 12 hour repair time.
Measurement and Calculation
Elapsed time is measured from the time the trouble ticket is opened by ALO Guate to the time service is restored to normal operating performance. The calculation for “Mean Time to Repair” is as follows:
Mean Time to Repair = [Total Outage Time (hours) for all Trouble Tickets (no dispatch)] ÷ [Total Number of Trouble Tickets (no dispatch)]
The following shall be excluded from any determination of Mean Time to Repair:
- Trouble tickets due to the failure of the CPE or any components on the Customer side of the CPE, whether or not such CPE was provided by ALO Guate
- Trouble tickets due to ALO Guate's scheduled maintenance windows

Such credit shall be Customer's sole and exclusive remedy for ALO Guate's failure to meet the committed Mean Time to Repair. Customer must request credit within sixty (60) days of the validated outage. ALO Guate reserves the right to determine if an outage is considered a validated outage. Customer payables must be current prior to receiving any credits. Requests for credits may take up to 30 days to research and review; customer is responsible for paying current invoices and will receive a credit after the 30 day review period.
Remedies - General
Maximum Allowable Remedy
