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: HPE/Aruba

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)-owned Aruba Networks once again landed in the winner’s circle thanks to its edge to cloud” strategy, Gartner said. The geographically diverse Aruba Edge Services Platform (ESP) offers a broad portfolio of cloud-based and on-premises managed network applications and services in conjunction with its access wired switching and WLAN products. Moreover, cloud-driven ESP unifies, automates and secures the campus, branch and remote network while maintaining an open programmable API.

Via HPE GreenLake, the Aruba portfolio can be purchased in a consumption-based pricing model. However, Gartner found that some users noted portfolio complexity due to numbers for hardware and software associated with campus components. Also, implementation of functionality sometimes differs between its cloud and premise-based offerings.
