Magic Quadrant for Wired, Wireless LAN 2020: Mist Launches Juniper Into Leader’s Circle

Gina Narcisi

The latest Magic Quadrant report is touting a new leader this time around to challenge longtime market heavyweights in the wired and wireless LAN market.

Leader: Extreme Networks

For the third year running, Extreme Networks landed in the leader quadrant thanks to its broad portfolio of cloud-managed and on-premises managed network applications and services, as well as its wired switching and WLAN products. The vendor has had success integrating several acquisitions, including Aerohive Networks, and has a “solid” marketing message, Gartner found. Extreme recently refreshed the platform portfolio and evolved the management and cloud offerings within its portfolio, including the ExtremeCloud IQ platform.

Extreme has global reach but in-country presence in some areas of Asia and Latin America may vary. The vendor also has a few product gaps, such as indoor location services, which is still under development.
