Telecom affected by technical issues

Major telecommunications provider Telecom is suffering from technical issues that has brought down its call centres, online services and internal networks today.

According to the firm, some corporate client services have also been affected by the problem. A workaround for corporate client services has been published by the firm on its Facebook page, as well as other third-party online services.

The company announced that it would be working on a major system upgrade from 7pm on the 16th of May. The work was expected to be completed by today afternoon.

Telecom had warned customers through its Twitter page that they will not be able to top-up a prepaid mobile, use prepaid data overseas or see their balance and usage during this time. The company also informed customers that they will be able to call, text and use mobile data within New Zealand, and make emergency calls, during the upgrade period.

The company has stated that the current technical issues are not linked to the upgrade process, and while everything is still on track for the upgrade work to finish this afternoon, its current priority remains solving the internal network issues at the earliest and technicians are hard at work to achieve that.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
