Fastcom is a managed services provider focused on end-to-end IT and telecommunication services for business customers across New Zealand and Australia. The backbone of Fastcom’s business is its network, which supports thousands of customers and delivers the full gamut of IT services – networking, security, cloud, business continuity and more.


  • Network automation around a highly complex, reliable, flexible, secure and scalable IP network
  • Ability to embed and automate business rules with zero-touch provisioning
  • Efficient and rapid onboarding of new capacity and capability to support customer demands
“With Fabric, we've removed a large portion of the risk profile around change control ... everything we do is about efficiency, everything is about time. We are doing more work faster and engaging with our customers more efficiently with a far lower risk of technical change. When we exude confidence, our customers absorb that like sponges, and they are confident as well. We've got the right mix of technology and the right vendor sitting behind us, and that's a pretty important outcome for Fastcom.”
