Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN 2020 is live and a new player has entered the winner’s circle for the first time.

Juniper Networks, a visionary in last year’s report, has jumped all the way to the Leader’s quadrant thanks to its revolutionary Mist Systems technology that it acquired in 2019.
