• The Gartner Wired andWireless LAN Magic Quadrant focuses on companies that provide the first connectivity to the infrastructure access layer, from the edge of the enterprise network to end users or connected devices.
• According to the report, “A vendor in the Visionaries quadrant demonstrates an ability to increase features in its offering to provide a unique and differentiated approach to the market. Visionaries will have innovated in one or more of the key areas of access layer technologies within the enterprise (for example, convergence, security, management or operational efficiency). The ability to apply differentiating functionality across the entire access layer will affect their position.
• Gartner positions businesses in its Magic Quadrant according to criteria that fall into two categories: ability to execute and completeness of vision.
