Advance Replacement

In the event of a hardware failure, please contact Monarch to obtain a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number. If Customer has purchased a Hardware Replacement Support Plan, then Monarch will provide replacement part(s) to Customer in accordance with the Hardware Replacement Support Plan. The replacement part may be refurbished, or substituted with similar products at the option of Monarch. Monarch cannot guarantee new replacement units be shipped against RMAs.

All returned material must have a valid Juniper RMA number. This number is necessary to ensure proper tracking and handling of returned material at the factory. Do not return any hardware until an RMA is issued. Monarch reserves the right to refuse shipments that do not have an authorized RMA number. Refused shipments will be returned to the shipper via collect freight. The RMA Returns Policy requires customers to return the defective parts to Monarch within 10 business days of receipt of the replacement unit, or be billed for the unit at full purchase price.

Return to Factory Repair

All claims filed for hardware units that fail (under warranty, not under a maintenance contract) will be repaired or replaced (with refurbished equipment) at the sole discretion of Monarch. For those customers located outside the U.S., it should be noted that Monarch' repair center(s) are in the U.S. and additional time (shipment days) should be factored into the overall repair time for transit to and from the U.S. Units returned under a valid RMA number will receive a ninety (90) day hardware warranty or the remainder of the original hardware warranty or active maintenance contract, whichever is longer.

For customers located outside the US and Canada, our freight forwarding company will assist with the shipment and delivery of the new unit to an international location. Defective product must be returned within ten (10) days from receipt of replacement unit, or customer will be invoiced the full purchase price of the replacement part. Non U.S. customers should allow for additional transit time due to international customs clearance. Monarch' Asset Recovery organization can assist the customer in facilitating the return of a defective DOA unit. Please do not send a DOA unit back to below addresses unless instructed by a Juniper authorized representative.

Non-Contracted/Out of Warranty
