We offer some hardware on a managed basis, others on an outright sale basis, and some models are available under either scenario.

Here's what we offer

Residential/SME Routers

Lightwire’s relationship with Huawei provides our wholesale partners with access to the latest WiFi 6 routers and mesh units. When combined with LW ACS, Lightwire’s Huawei offering drives greater profitability for our telco partners in NZ and Australia.

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 in line 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 high availability multi-tenancy firewalls to allocate virtual domains per customer.

IP Capable Phones

Whether purchased outright or as managed devices, out phones are delivered fully configured, usually for use with our 3CX unified communications 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, any faulty units are replaced next business day and all configuration changes are handled by our NOC upon request.
