Juniper Networks has been named a Leader by Gartner, Inc. in the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure.
In the most recent report, published just over a year after the Juniper acquisition of Mist Systems and just four years since the Mist platform first shipped, the company, for its combined Juniper wired/wireless portfolio, driven by Mist AI, is positioned highest for execution in the report.
“In our opinion, this report validates the unique advantages of the Juniper AI-Driven Enterprise, including rich AIOps functionality and proactive self-driving automation for optimized user experiences,” said Jeff Aaron, VP of Enterprise Marketing at Juniper. “Furthermore, we believe that by recognizing Juniper (Mist) as a strong influencer and voice in the market with top scores for execution, to us, the report properly positions Juniper (Mist) as a true game-changer in the business-critical wired/wireless industry.”
Juniper continues to see strong momentum in the wired/wireless access space, including 100% year-over-year growth in new wireless logos and 180% year-over-year growth in wireless bookings in Q3 2020. Also, Juniper had a record Q3 2020 quarter for campus and branch switching revenue, which was up 19% year-over-year (compared to negative growth for most of the industry).
This is the latest in a series of noteworthy Gartner distinctions for the larger Juniper enterprise portfolio. In July 2020, Juniper was named a Leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Center and Cloud Networking for the third year in a row. Previously, Juniper was named a Visionary positioned furthest for completeness of vision in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Indoor Location, released in January 2020.
