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.

Niche Player: Arista Networks

This is Arista’s first showing on the wired/wireless LAN Magic Quadrant, and that’s because it acquired former Niche Player Mojo Networks. The deal allowed Arista to enter the campus switch segment. CloudVision, the company’s orchestration and automation platform can be deployed as a perpetual or subscription pricing model.

The vendor, however, still has a limited AI/ML Campus Automation Strategy and issues with global reach, as 65 percent of Arista’s campus network sales come from North America, which could challenge the vendor’s ability to provide sufficient product coverage to all market opportunities globally, Gartner said.
