The intention of this procurement initiative is to establish contract(s) with supplier(s) to supply New Zealand Post with the design and implementation of a flexible and future proof data network and telecommunications services.

A two-stage, open tender process will be used where potential suppliers will be invited to respond. While it is our preference to engage a single ‘principal’ supplier we are open to a multiple supplier environment. We have therefore separated this RFP into Telecommunications ‘commoditised services’ and the ‘remaining’ services. This is to ensure responses for each can be made from all suppliers and are open to all parties. A supplier will be considered as a principal supplier for a range of services or as a supplier of a discrete service or function. All suppliers will be invited to present their proposals following submission.

What we need

New Zealand Post is seeking a new data network (LAN, WAN & WiFi), telco services and related security infrastructure i.e. firewalls. Data network design principles and technologies have advanced over the years since New Zealand Post last reviewed the market, and this RFP is an opportunity to unlock the advantages of these advancements.

A new SD-WAN which is easily scalable, resilient, and easy to move between premises as we transform our property estate to meet future demands.

Wifi for our staff in corporate locations and industrial settings, that can cope with a large number of devices and still support streaming of video for real time collaboration and item scanning from the furthers corner of our processing sites.

A high-speed secure LAN which just works.

Integrated PSTN calling from our Microsoft Teams environment.

A mobile fleet for anytime, anywhere secure collaboration and communication.

Data only plans for mobile scanners.

Low cost 0800 and PSTN calling.

Modern identity and application aware firewalls, with a simplified architecture.

Cost and performance transparency with an open view into the performance of underlying services.
