Arlo Solutions Awarded Verizon DREN Contract

Washington, DC (June 17, 2021) – Arlo Solutions (Arlo) was awarded a subcontract to provide technology solutions for the Defense Information Systems Agency’s (DISA) High Performance Computing Modernization Program and Defense Research and Engineering Network (DREN).

Arlo will serve as subcontractor to Verizon Public Sector on a potential 10-year, $495 million contract to support the delivery of a next-generation, high-bandwidth, low-latency, Layer 2 wide area network in support of critical research. Verizon’s solution includes switch, router, firewall, and Edge Compute capabilities, connecting 200 different Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation laboratories, and High Performance Computing locations across the United States and beyond.

Arlo will play a pivotal role by staffing ten key security-cleared positions with industry experts who have the knowledge and skills to deploy DREN. DREN connects Department of Defense (DoD) supercomputers and researchers so they can collaborate on scientific research, engineering, and testing efforts.

Arlo has established a portfolio of technology projects for agencies including US Air Force, US Department of Agriculture, and DoD. Recently ranked #153 on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies in America, Arlo is expanding its profile of government contracts and contracting vehicles, providing agencies with more opportunities to access its technology solutions. This year, Arlo added Stars III to its list of vehicles, which also includes GSA, SBA 8(a), VECTOR, SITE III, and CDM Analytical and Technical Services.
