Kiwi partners called to Skype for Business Govt agency tender

National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research opens tender process for a video conferencing technology refresh.

The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) has opened a tender process for a video conferencing technology refresh, calling on specific Skype for Business channel expertise.

The Crown Research Institute of New Zealand is seeking to replace core conferencing solutions in its collaboration rooms, along with the bridge and gateway at the back-end that support this service.

Applicants are required to ensure this new technology is tightly integrated with the existing Skype for Business (SFB) desk collaboration system, while also supporting external H.323/SIP Video Conferencing (VC) communication.

“NIWA would like to create a single virtual meeting environment that could be joined easily from any meeting room video conferencing system or via any Microsoft Skype for Business client (standard to all NIWA staff), either internally or externally,” NIWA IT projects manager, Geoff Latimer, stated.

“We are also looking to replace the video conference endpoints in five collaboration rooms with Skype for Business compatible equipment.”

Currently there are 36 meeting rooms across the NIWA organisation, with the intention in the comings years to progressively add collaboration capability to all these rooms.

In the interim, the existing collaboration/VC room systems must be supported and integrated with this technology refresh.

According to the tender - which closes on October 31 - the new technology must include a (single touch to join), easy to use touch panel interface and the system must provide all gateway, recording, webcasting, bridging, endpoint management, content translation, and scheduling services.

Meanwhile, all supplied systems and services must be supportable in New Zealand with local support staff and services.

Established in 1992, NIWA conducts commercial and non-commercial research across a broad range of disciplines in the environmental sciences.
