The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) selected Verizon Public Sector to deliver a next-generation, high-bandwidth, low-latency, layer-two 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 (RDT&E) laboratories and high performance computing (HPC) locations across the United States and beyond.

“Investments across Verizon’s enterprise business enable the kind of tailored solutions our team will deliver to the U.S. Department of Defense and the Defense Research and Engineering Network,” said Jennifer Chronis, senior vice president for public sector at Verizon. “Our managed services solutions will create a next-generation user experience for research teams utilizing the DREN platform while also enhancing security across the network.”

With guaranteed throughput and latency at speeds of up to 100 Gigabits per second (Gbps) and even 400 Gbps, multidisciplinary teams can be brought together in near real time to develop and test big data analyses, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and simulations, helping to tackle complex problems from climate change and pandemic response to next generation autonomous defense systems.

Through Verizon Public Sector’s DREN4 solution, the network will move beyond the challenge of recurring investment and high effort technology revolutions so that multidisciplinary teams may consume technical enhancement and innovation on a continuous, evolutionary basis with increased transparency to day-to-day operations.
