The hallmark of our test platforms is evolving, modular test features to allow customers to keep pace with advancing technologies that require on-the-job learning. 

Premium TAC is ideal for customers who value rapid, in-field remote assistance in order to avoid repeat test work.  

All customers enjoy Standard Plus support during the product warranty period and can upgrade to Premium Priority TAC by purchasing a VIAVI Care or Fleet Care Support Plan.   

As of October 31, 2020, we ceased to provide free Tech Expert Application Support for all VIAVI (JDSU) instruments that are not under a VIAVI Care Plan, Fleet Care contract or a current warranty.
