Hewlett Packard Enterprise: Challenger

Bringing in the second-most data center network revenue in 2015, Hewlett Packard Enterprise entered 2016 after completing the sale of 51 percent of its H3C subsidiary in China (also on the quadrant). HPE will be reliant on H3C for the primary Comware code base and platforms for its data center network portfolio.

"We do have concerns of what the future looks like because of the minority ownership of H3C because a lot of the data center technology comes from H3C," said Fabbi. "It's still not 100 percent clear how that relationship will be working."

For its recent second quarterly earnings, Palo Alto, Calif.-based HPE reported overall networking revenue of $874 million, up a whopping 57 percent year over year, thanks to its $3 billion acquisition last year of Aruba Networks.

HPE is ranked No. 3 in execution on the quadrant, but falls amid the bottom of the pack in regards to vision.
