Alcatel-Lucent placed as “Visionary” in the Magic Quadrant for Data Center Network Infrastructure
Bangkok, Mar 22, 2013 – (ACN Newswire) – Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise has been placed as a Visionary in Gartner Inc.’s “Magic Quadrant for the Data Center Network Infrastructure” report by Tim Zimmerman and Mark Fabbi, published on February 11, 2013. The report qualifies a Visionary by its demonstrated ability “to increase the features in its offering, to provide a unique and differentiated approach to the market. A Visionary has innovated in one or more of the key areas of data center infrastructure, such as management (including virtualization), security (including policy enforcement), SDN and operational efficiency, as well as cost reductions.”
The report comes as a result of growing focus on the core and data center segments of the network, which are expected to have low latency in their delivery of virtual applications.
Last year Gartner placed Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s Networking products in the Visionaries quadrant of its report, “Magic Quadrant for the Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure” published on June 13, 2012.
Sathit Panpaisan, Country Manager, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise said, “Being recognized as a Visionary by Gartner is proof of our commitment to delivering the most innovative solutions to our customers to allow them to realize the full benefits of technology. Since we launched our Application Fluent Network (AFN) vision in 2010, we have helped businesses uncover the full benefits of virtualization and workload automation.”
Alcatel-Lucent continues to make strides in the market with its Applications Fluent Network approach, gaining significant wins at a diverse set of customers, including the California State University system, DHL Belgium and Cap Gemini China.
