Gartner’s WLAN Magic Quadrant: Motorla, HP and Siemens on the rise

Where once there were two, now there are three.

Gartner has published its 2008 Magic Quadrant for the wireless LAN infrastructure market. The most noteworthy change from 2007’s Quadrant is the rise of Motorola. Last year Gartner identified Cisco and Aruba as the two leaders in a crowded market. This year, Motorola has joined them as a third market leader.

HP ProcCurve (which purchased Colubris this year) and the newly merged Enterasys/Siemens Enterprise Communications both advanced from niche player status to visionaries. Trapeze Networks appears to have taken a step backwards since it was acquired by Belden, slipping from visionary to niche player.

Meru Networks remains in the visionary quadrant, although it is on the cusp of climbing into market leader status.
