The Report

The Critical Capabilities research is a companion piece to Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for the Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure report. The Critical Capabilities scored 18 vendors across the following six use cases:

■ Unified wired and WLAN access managed through an integrated network management/monitoring solution, for tasks such as device configuration and troubleshooting, with the aid of reporting tools.

■ WLAN-only refresh or new build, reflecting requirements not only for the wireless elements of a unified access network, but also for a “wireless first” environment, where the WLAN is the primary or predominant first connection to the enterprise network.

■ Wired-only access network refresh or new build, with requirements either for a wired-only network or for expanding- or refreshing-only wired switching.

■ Remote branch office with corporate headquarters (HQ) to address organizations with widely distributed offices in addition to a central corporate office.

■ Performance stringent applications, for deployments that require high availability or must support latency-sensitive applications, using either a cloud-based or on-premises management solution.

■ Hands-off network operations (NetOps), when the primary driver is to reduce the operational burden and costs associated with managing network infrastructure.
