Technical Account Manager
The TAM is a regional NetScout engineer who is assigned to your account to shepherd incident-driven product issues, or other concerns on your behalf. The TAM is able to help resolve issues faster and more effectively, resulting in a better return on investment and a lower total cost of ownership.
Remote Site Engineer
An RSE is a NetScout support engineer who spends 20 hours/week dedicated to monitoring and managing your NetScout environment remotely from a NetScout location. In addition to acting as your primary point of contact into NetScout's support organization, the RSE provides remote assistance with day-to-day, backend administration of your NetScout environment.
For the most mission-critical environments, NetScout offers the OSE, a fulltime, Level 3 engineer hired and trained by NetScout, but who resides at your location to offload backend tasks and maintenance and help ensure maximum system availability. The OSE functions as your advocate for resolving issues, escalating services needs and managing the planning, deployment and day-to-day maintenance of your NetScout environment, freeing your network operations team to take advantage of NetScout's solutions to troubleshoot problems or concentrate on higher value, more strategic activities.
