3DHB wishes to migrate its WAN network to a private Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) network with one service provider for all network connectivity across all three DHBs. 3DHB understands that the service provider’s core skills revolve around the deployment, management and maintenance of a highly redundant, scalable, resilient network. Similarly, 3DHB wishes to reduce to either one or two service providers for Internet and Connected Health access. 3DHB expects that this traffic can be carried over the WAN connections.
Thus, 3DHB simply desires to consume bandwidth from a reliable redundant & resilient network with the understanding that all the challenges, as mentioned above, are overcome based on the fundamental architecture deployed by the service provider.
Each key location within each DHB would require geographically diverse connections to diverse Points of Presence (PoPs), including link or tail connectivity into each site. Separate fibre and ducting would be required to ensure no single points of failure for these elements. In essence each main hospital (Wellington Regional, Kenepuru, Hutt Valley and Wairarapa) requires no single point of failure.
All questions in relation to this RFP should be directed via GETS.
