2013 Wired and Wireless Access LAN Magic Quadrant

For the second year in a row, Alcatel-Lucent has been positioned as a Visionary in the 2013 "Magic Quadrant for the Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure" by Gartner. According to Gartner, a vendor in the Visionaries quadrant has demonstrated the ability to increase the features in its offering to provide a unique and differentiated approach to the market. A Visionary will have innovated in one or more of the key areas of access layer technologies within the enterprise (e.g., convergence, security, management or operational efficiency). The ability to apply differentiating functionality across the entire access layer will affect their position.

We believe, our unified access solutions based on an Application Fluent Network approach delivers a high quality user experience, real- time application controls, greater security, and QoS for corporate and personal device access. Performance and ROI are optimized through increased wireless LAN coverage and feature rich, modular and upgradeable Ethernet LAN access switches.
