HPE (Aruba) Positioned as a Leader in 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Wired and WLAN Infrastructure Report for Sixteenth Year Running

Only Vendor to Receive the Highest Ranking in Three of the Five Use Cases in Critical Capabilities Report

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ArubaESP–Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company (NYSE: HPE), today announced that for the sixteenth year, HPE (Aruba) has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant in Gartner Inc.’s latest “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure.”1 Additionally, in the companion “Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure” report, Aruba received the highest scores in three of the five use cases – more than any other vendor.

Complimentary copies of the Gartner Magic Quadrant and Critical Capabilities reports for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure are available here.

Gartner evaluates vendors included in the Magic Quadrant based on two primary criteria: completeness of vision and ability to execute. In both categories, Gartner continues to recognize Aruba as a Leader.

In the companion Critical Capabilities report, Gartner evaluated vendor effectiveness in addressing an organization’s needs in five key use cases: Unified Wired and WLAN Access, WLAN-only Refresh/New Build, Wired-only Refresh/New build, Remote Branch Office with Corporate HQ, and Hands-off NetOps. Aruba is the only vendor who received the highest ranking in three of these use cases.

“Only two companies have been able to maintain a Leaders Quadrant position for 16 years running and Aruba is proud to be one of them,” said David Hughes, chief product and technology officer at Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company. “Our ‘customer first, customer last’ philosophy, which has been ingrained in our processes, people, and culture over many years, is a key reason customers continue to look to Aruba and why we believe Gartner continues to recognize us as a Leader. As we continue innovating with Aruba ESP and embrace everything as-a-Service initiatives, we believe enterprises will continue to see the value and ROI inherent in Aruba’s solutions, and will be encouraged by our consistent, long-term position as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure.”

Gartner has also recognized HPE (Aruba) consistently for other components of its industry-leading portfolio. In September 2021, HPE (Aruba and Silver Peak) was named a Leader in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure, marking the fourth year in a row that HPE (Aruba and Silver Peak) has been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant. In addition, HPE (Aruba) was named a May 2021 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure; Silver Peak was named a February 2021 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for WAN Edge Infrastructure; and HPE (Aruba) was named an October 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Network Access Control.
