ARLO ANNOUNCES STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP WITH CALIX, EXPANDING DISTRIBUTION TO NEW REGIONAL MARKETS
Partnership enables local Communication Service Providers to add Arlo security cameras, doorbells and Smart services to customers’ managed WiFi experiences
SAN JOSE, Calif. — December 8, 2020 — Arlo Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: ARLO), a leading internet-connected camera brand, today announced a strategic partnership with Calix, a leading global provider of cloud and software platforms, systems and services. The relationship enables expanded distribution of Arlo’s award-winning smart home security products and services to customers in local markets across the U.S. and Canada via local Communications Service Providers (CSP).
As interest in smart home security continues to grow, consumers living outside major metropolitan areas oftentimes have a difficulty accessing the latest technology available through national retail channels. With the rapid pace of new technology, the plethora of choices and change can be difficult to navigate, and even slow adoption of new technology. The partnership with Calix ensures Arlo’s latest smart home solutions reach local markets. Customers will be able to access Arlo’s advanced security products and services through their trusted CSP as part of their overall managed WiFi experience. Now, regardless of the area of the country they call home, consumers can enjoy peace of mind knowing what they love and have worked hard for is protected by Arlo.
“Arlo is dedicated to one simple, yet fundamental need we all share: to protect and connect with the people and places we love. Our strategic partnership with Calix, encompassing a strong network for CSPs, will enable even wider distribution of Arlo’s award-winning smart home security products powered by Arlo SmartCloud to communities,” said Matt McRae, CEO, Arlo. “Arlo will underscore the value proposition offered by Calix and the CSPs to deliver best-in-class smart security solutions to consumers who rely on their trusted local CSP for WiFi solutions that keep them connected and secure.”
Calix will work with trusted community CSPs to educate new consumers on the benefits of Arlo’s leading home security solutions.
“We are focused on bringing leading solutions to our CSP customers on a regular basis and are thrilled to announce that Arlo will be added to our platform,” said Michael Weening, COO, Calix. “Through integrating Arlo into our Revenue EDGE Solution, CSPs will have a unique opportunity to be the center of their subscriber experience, delighting them with value-added services, all while driving new sources of revenue for their business.”
