The Reserve Bank of New Zealand is reviewing its wide area network (WAN) and internet service provider (ISP) services to help it grow in the future.
According to tender documents released this week, the Bank’s IT setup is a corporate WAN environment with physical and virtualised Windows servers with Microsoft’s SQL server RDBMS.
The Bank’s desktop and laptops run Windows XP. It makes extensive use of WAN and ISP links to provide internet and email for staff, public connections to the Bank’s websites, payment systems, VoIP, and data replication.
It is looking for a supplier to review the Bank’s WAN and ISP links, analyse future Bank network needs and propose a new WAN architecture to cover future requirements.
The deadline for replies is Friday, August 21. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference number 26785.
