RYE BROOK, N.Y. — December 13, 2010 — ARC Networks, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Broadview Networks, announced today that it has been approved as a preferred vendor by the General Services Administration (GSA) of the United States Federal government.

Under this GSA IT Schedule 70 contract, ARC Networks is now eligible to sell its cable and wiring services for local area networks, wireless networking and security systems directly to state and Federal agencies. Approval as a GSA vendor speeds up procurement and makes ordering from ARC an easier and more efficient process.

Peter Parrinello, president of ARC said, “We are pleased to have earned the trust of the GSA to be eligible to provide the full range of services for the installation of communications networks. ARC Networks brings many years of experience serving agencies at the state, local and municipal levels under an Office of General Services contract in New York State. We are pleased to add this Federal GSA approval to our portfolio.”
