Need Hardware?

Routers, firewalls, IP phones and headsets. We offer some hardware types on a managed basis, others on an outright sale basis, and some models are available under either scenario.

Managed Routers

Let our certified engineers manage the configuration maintenance of routers.  

Managed Firewalls

Let us handle reporting, patching and delivery using the FortiGate suit of products.


I want to purchase IP capable phones that work with 3CX or Teams for my client.

Why choose managed hardware?

You know the outcome you require, and we have the people and systems to make it happen.


We work with you to determine the best solution for your needs and goals


Require changes? No fuss. Hardware comes with unlimited moves / adds / changes (MACs)


24/7 support and escalation paths with transparent access to senior management.


As you expand across the Tasman, we can go with you, providing a single point of contact.

Business continuity

In the event of a managed device failing, we ship a free replacement device within 1 business day.

Why buy hardware from us?

Because you want to buy a pre-configured device that is backed with top shelf support, and it just so happens that we provide exactly that. Not to mention, our products are well priced and come with free shipping.


Here's what we offer

SD-WAN solutions by Lightwire

Business Routers

Any of the devices we offer can be uniquely configured, whether you need to run IPsec VPNs, or simply terminate a standard connection, you can leave all elements of the end to end delivery of the service in our court.

We run with the FortiGate suite of products and use FortiManager to ensure patching and firmware is handled inline with the vendors recommendations.

Physical Firewalls

Under this model, Lightwire handles the configuration, management and reporting of a number of UTM functions.

Using the FortiGate product range, we deploy a physical router/firewall at each site and use a cloud-based collector for reporting and visibility of network security.

Service Features Include:

  • Web filtering – allows blocking of particular websites or whole categories such as streaming video or social networks
  • Anti-virus – intercept malicious and dangerous software before it enters your network.
  • Alerts – in the event of defined security events such as suspicious activities (a botnet computer for example) inside your network.
  • A single report for multiple sites – provides a unified basis for network analysis
  • Usage reporting – broken down by application/website, source IP, duration and traffic used.

Virtual Firewalls

Providing the same feature set as a managed device, and also based on a FortiGate design, the virtual firewall model sees NGFW functions provided from inside the Lightwire private cloud using multi-tenancy firewalls to allocate virtual domains per customer.

This solution is ideal for customers that require the kind of guaranteed service levels that are possible through the use of high availability connectivity and power configurations found in carrier grade data centres such as those Lightwire uses. 

IP Capable Phones

Whether purchased outright or as managed devices, our phones are delivered fully configured, usually for use with our 3CX unified communications solutions or Teams Calling (also known as Teams Phone) solutions, but they can also terminate directly to our soft switch with a single line per phone for smaller deployments.

As with all of our managed hardware solutions, if a unit becomes faulty a replacement will be sent the following business day (at the latest) and all configuration changes are handled by our NOC upon request.
