The new 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure is out, and for the third year in a row, Juniper Networks is a Leader. Moreover, for the second year straight, Juniper is positioned both furthest in “Completeness of Vision” and Highest in “Ability to Execute” across all vendors evaluated. Being named a Leader just once is a nice achievement. Twice is an amazing trend. But three times in a row – that is something much more, in my opinion. I believe it is indicative of strong, durable momentum that few vendors can attain – and that isn’t going to change any time soon for Juniper.
In fact, according to a recent 650 Group market report, Juniper is the fastest-growing enterprise and outdoor Wireless LAN vendor. In addition, Juniper recently announced its fifth-consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth, with Juniper’s AI-driven Enterprise solutions significantly outpacing the market with record bookings for both wired and wireless access.
Sudheer Matta, Group Vice President of Product Management for the AI-driven Enterprise said it best: “By delivering innovative client-to-cloud automation, insight and self-driving actions, Mist AI continues to stand out from the rest of the industry for ease, scale, cost and performance. The durable momentum we are seeing is a true testament to our world-class product, sales and marketing teams, along with partners who have all rallied behind Juniper’s innovative AI-driven Enterprise solution. Together, we are bringing proven value to customers and partners throughout the globe.”
Gartner also positioned Juniper as a Leader and furthest in “Completeness of Vision” in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Indoor Location Services and as the only Visionary in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for SD-WAN. These reports are essential reads for anyone looking at campus and/or branch solutions that optimize IT and user experiences.
Similarly, the Gartner® Peer Insights™ is a peer review and ratings platform designed for enterprise software and services decision makers. For example, Juniper was recognized as a Customers’ Choice for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure in the 2022 Gartner® Peer Insights™ Voice of the Customer report (May 31, 2022). Juniper received an overall customer rating of 4.9 out of 5, based on 130 reviews, with 99 percent of respondents saying they are willing to recommend the solution (the highest of any vendor). In addition, Juniper has an overall rating of 5 out of 5 based on 170 reviews as of 23 December 2022 for Juniper Wireless Access Points and Edge on Gartner® Peer Insights™ as of Q3 2022.
Thank you to the Gartner team for their recognition over the years. And thank you to all of the Juniper Mist customers and partners who have believed in our industry-leading vision and ability to execute. I truly believe that Juniper is now in the wired/wireless driver’s seat, and we would not be here without your help!
