The Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (HREOC) will spend $125,000 to upgrade its network switch infrastructure.
HREOC expanded its desktop fleet with 190 computers in late 2004 at a cost of $435,500 and spent $338,000 earlier that year to refresh its switch infrastructure with Dell hardware. It updated its ageing Microsoft Exchange servers in 2006 at a cost of $107,000.
The network integrates with an Avaya VoIP system and uses a mix of fibre multimode cables.
Existing switches will be redeployed to other floors of its office to provide redundancy.
Bidders have until May 7 to respond to the tender.
