Leader: Cisco

The San Jose, Calif.-based longtime data center networking leader takes the top spot for execution on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant, while ranking fourth for vision. Cisco offers arguably the largest networking portfolio in the industry including fabric management via Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC) or Data Center Network Manager (DCNM), Nexus switches, and associated tools including Network Assurance Engine (NAE) and Network Insights.
