Aruba Networks received the highest scores in 4 out of 6 use cases


 

 

The 2014 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure Report offers deeper insight into vendors product and service offerings by extending the Magic Quadrant analysis based on specific wired and wireless use cases. Aruba Networks received the highest scores in 4 out of 6 use cases.

 

 

"Aruba focuses primarily on enterprise wireless and derives only 3% to 5% of revenue from wired switching. The vendor supports both pay-as-you-grow pricing and mixing/matching of components across product lines. Aruba networking equipment can be provisioned via its SaaS-based management offering (Aruba Central) or traditional network management software (AirWave) while network service applications are delivered via Aruba ClearPass software. Aruba architecture product portfolio and pricing make the vendor ideally suited for all wireless deployments ranging from SMB to large-enterprise and high-density venues." Gartner


 
 

1) Enterprise Unified Wired and WLAN Access

 

This is a physical facility that typically supports more than 500 users, requiring wired/WLAN access in a carpeted office space environment.

 

The majority of users are typically badged employees, but contractors and guests also require connectivity. Employees typically have assigned workspaces and utilize desk phones. Employees are issued corporate-owned devices, but BYOD is also typically supported for mobile devices (such as smartphones and tablets). This buyer is typically highly technically competent and/or is comfortable making granular changes to wired/WLAN infrastructure components. This use case is typically initiated by a campus refresh for greenfield opportunities. This is the most common use case for newly constructed office space.

 

 

 

 

 2) Enterprise Wired-Only Access

  

This is a physical facility that typically supports more than 500 users, requiring only wired connectivity.

 

This use case is often observed as a refresh initiative and/or when incremental wired switching capacity is needed. Typically, there is an incumbent wireless solution in place, with no requirement to replace it. Users are typically badged employees, but contractors and guests also require connectivity. Employees typically have assigned workspaces and utilize desk phones. Employees are issued corporate-owned devices, and there is limited support for BYOD on the wired infrastructure. This buyer is typically highly technically competent and/or is comfortable making granular changes to wired infrastructure components.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3) Enterprise WLAN-Only Access

  

This is a physical facility that typically supports more than 500 users, requiring only wireless connectivity within carpeted office space.

 

This use case is often observed as a refresh initiative and/or when incremental WLAN capacity is needed. BYOD initiatives within an organization can also drive investments into this use case. Typically, there is an incumbent wired switching solution in place, with no requirement to replace it. Users are typically badged employees, but contractors and guests also require connectivity. Employees typically have assigned workspaces and utilize desk phones. Employees are issued corporate-owned devices, and BYOD is supported on the WLAN. This buyer is typically highly technically competent and/or is comfortable making granular changes to WLAN infrastructure components.

 

 

 

 

 

 

4) Small or Remote Office

  

This is a physical facility that typically contains 10 to 50 users, requiring wired and wireless access in a carpeted office space environment.

 

This use case is applies to remote branch offices affiliated with midmarket and larger enterprises, as well as SMB environments. The majority of users are badged employees, but contractors and guests also require connectivity. Employees typically have assigned workspaces and utilize desk phones. Employees are issued corporate-owned devices, but BYOD is also typically supported for mobile devices (such as smartphones and tablets). There is usually no on-site technical support in these locations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

5) Guest or Hot Spot Access Only

 

This is typically a physical facility that provides "hot spot" services, including "free Wi-Fi" for nearby guests and/or patrons.

 

This is common in retail venues such as coffee shops, and it usually supports one to 50 users via WLAN only. The vast majority of users are true guests. This use case includes greenfield and refresh opportunities and typically entails: (1) adding guest capabilities to an existing corporate WLAN; and/or (2) building out separate guest-only infrastructure. Organizations typically are looking to provide targeted customer engagement to users connecting to the WLAN (through, for example, advertisements and coupons). This buyer is typically highly technically competent and/or is comfortable making granular changes to WLAN infrastructure components, but there is usually no on-site technical support in remote locations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

6) High-Density Venue

 

 

This is typically a facility with a large number (1,000 to more than 100,000) of concentrated users and/or devices, such as a stadium, concert venue or conference facility.

 

Nearly all users are true guests, and WLAN is the primary connectivity method. A limited amount of wired access components are occasionally needed to provide connectivity for WLAN. This use case is observed for greenfield and refresh opportunities. This buyer is typically highly technically competent and/or is comfortable making granular changes to WLAN infrastructure components.
