In an effort to improve internet bandwidth, the Whakatane District Council (WDC) is looking to replace its wireless network links.
At present its three sites in the Civic Centre, hospital and operations business unit are connected via a wireless networking hardware configuration called Proxim MP-11a which is unstable.
WDC wants to replace the connections with reliable wireless network links. The links will have to carry a minimum of 100 Mb\s, a life cycle of at least five years and 99.99 percent uptime.
The WDC will look at either acquiring the links or leasing them. The deadline for replies is Friday, August 21. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference 26864.
