Here's Who Made Gartner's First-Ever Magic Quadrant For WAN Edge Infrastructure
Like VMware, Gartner said Cisco is broadly relevant and should be on the short list of customers across industry verticals and geographies. Cisco, San Jose, Calif., offers SD-WAN solutions through its Viptela business, as well as a solution powered by Meraki appliances. The broad portfolio, scalability and a clear road map that points toward increasing levels of automation and uniform policy across environments make Cisco's SD-WAN offerings particularly strong, Gartner said. Cisco's large portfolio can also be confusing to customers, Gartner noted.
