Microland, a global digital transformation company announced today that it has been recognized as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Network Services. The detailed report is available at https://www.microland.com/analyst-insights/leader-gartner-magic-quadrant.
Gartner evaluated vendors on multiple parameters. Assessment was based on two service categories of managed LAN & Managed WAN / WLAN and ﬁve management attributes of service delivery platform, service management functions, operations automation, customer experience management & professional services that are Core capabilities for Managed Network Services.
The report projects that “By 2023, 40% of enterprise buyers will demand standardized service definitions from managed network services (MNS) providers, up from 15% in 2018” and that “By 2024, to enhance agility and support for cloud applications, 60% of enterprises will have implemented SD-WAN, compared with about 30% in 2020.”
According to the report “The MNS market consists of globally capable providers of MNS that provide service management functions for the operation of enterprise networks.” “The providers in this market are either Network Service Providers (NSPs) or non-NSPs, as both types are common in this market.” According to another report, “Critical Capabilities for Managed Network Services”, “The providers in this research are either NSPs or non-NSPs, as both types are common in this market and have also met the requirement for delivering services on a global basis, beyond their own home country.”
