Networking Research Methodology

Gartner evaluated data center networking vendors who provide networking hardware and/or software solutions within enterprise data centers. Technologies include data center core and spine solutions, server access switches, virtual switching, SDN and trends leveraging open-source and disaggregated networking technologies.

Gartner ranks the vendors based on products, services, sales strategy and execution, pricing, customer experience, market understanding and innovation, among other factors.

The Magic Quadrant ranks vendors on their ability to execute and completeness of vision. Gartner places vendors into four categories: Niche Players (low on vision and execution), Visionaries (good vision but low execution), Challengers (good execution but low vision) and Leaders (excelling in both vision and execution).
