Fusion Networks – On the Telecommunications-as-a-Service (TaaS) Panel

Fusion is a first choice to provide Telecommunications-as-a-Service (TaaS) services for Connectivity to Government Agencies. 

“Fusion invested in TaaS certification because we support the philosophy that having companies like ours with credible track record and capabilities offering TaaS services, enables enterprises to make the most fit-for-purpose IT investment.” MD Andrew Gurr

A wholly owned New Zealand business, Fusion has been delivering innovative solutions across Secure Networks, IT and IT Support, Cyber Security, Cloud,  and Telecommunications for more than a decade.


Relative to other panellists, we’re a smaller firm, so we are agile and flexible and able to deliver customised business solutions to our clients.

We’re an independent lot but we  work in teams to bring the right combination of intelligence to bear on problem solving and the rapid resolution of critical issues.

We have an equal commitment to technology and client service. We pride ourselves on our long-term relationships with our clients and many of our staff have been with the company from the beginning.


TaaS enables Government agencies to collaborate nationwide and deliver citizen-centric focused services in telecommunication and security. Every service solution undergoes revision by the New Zealand Information Security Manual (NZISM) to ensure secure and efficient service solutions are provided.

But TaaS isn’t just telecommunications; TaaS is tailored to each Agency’s needs, allowing them to select the products and services they require from a range of providers such as Fusion Networks, specifically chosen by the Government. Agencies can access the best deals without having to go through a full market Request for Proposal (RFP) process.

TaaS has created an internet for government, called the GNet. TaaS has an internet-like architecture, with suppliers ‘peering’ or sharing their services for greater connectivity.

Benefits of TaaS

Easier collaboration

Agencies are able to merge, separate and co-locate without extra costs or complexity.

Freedom of choice

Agencies have the freedom to choose which suppliers and services best meet their business needs.

Greater flexibility

There are no minimum terms – agencies can leave a service agreement after just a month – and no minimum volumes. TaaS enables agencies to buy exactly the type and amount of services they require to meet their evolving needs.

Pay as you go

TaaS has no minimum volumes, so agencies pay only for the services they use. If one agency drives down the cost of a service from a vendor, the new lower cost immediately applies to all other agencies using the service.


TaaS ensures that agencies can secure data at the appropriate level and that security isn’t a barrier to providing services or working more closely with other agencies.

Latest technology

TaaS services are flexible to take advantage of innovative technology as it becomes available. Agencies using TaaS no longer run the risk of owning IT infrastructure that is out-of-date or unsuitable for their needs.
