We are honored to share that Gartner® has recognized HPE Aruba as a Leader in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure for the 17th year in a row.

In the Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure report, Gartner evaluated vendors based on two primary criteria: Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute. The report includes a summary of each vendor, as well as an assessment of each vendor’s strengths and cautions.  In both categories, 17 years running, Gartner continues to recognize Aruba as a Leader.

We believe the investments we have made in our Aruba ESP architecture including Aruba Central with integrated AIOps and NetConductor, wireless LAN including Wi-Fi 6E and location-based services, and wired LAN with Aruba CX switching have helped us continue our position in the market.

We are also excited to share that in the companion 2022 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure 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, and Hands-off NetOps.  Aruba received high scores across all Use Cases including the highest ranking in both the WLAN-only Refresh/New Build and Remote Branch Office use cases.

For any business looking to build new, refresh and upgrade existing, or expand their networks, Aruba is ready and excited to help provide market leading networking solutions.
