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: Juniper Networks

Visionary-turned Leader, Juniper Networks was propelled into the winner’s circle this year thanks to its Mist Systems acquisition, which the company used to inject AI into its suite of wired switching and WLAN products and is expanding the technology across its entire portfolio. Juniper is reaching clients in all markets, from SMB to large enterprise customers and service providers.

The vendor’s strengths this year lies in its rich AIOps functionality through Mist, which offers WLAN and WAN service-level assurance that provides continuous service-level monitoring and proactive action. Gartner notes that Since Juniper is one of the younger leading vendors and as its Mist solution continues to mature, the vendor needs to work on its expertise depth in vertical markets.
