This network change has now been postponed. Further information on when this will take place will be advised at a later date.  

Our ICT team is updating and replacing our firewall at our Auckland datacentre on Saturday 18 June. This is to ensure our systems remain safe and secure using next generation firewall technology.

Change window:

  • June 18, 2022, Saturday 8 AM - 8 PM

Expected impact:

  • We are making these changes in a way that will ensure minimal impact to users.
  • We will be running a number of tests throughout the window. While this happens, you may notice short intermittent outages of the Fire and Emergency network during the change window. These outages should not last more than a few minutes.
  • If you experience outages that last longer than this, please contact

The project is expecting to complete the same change at the Wellington datacentre in early August. Further information on the impact of this change will be provided closer to the time.
