Since the 2013-2014 inaugural version of this IDC MarketScape, HPE-Aruba has been recognized as a leader and, according to the IDC MarketScape, “has solidified itself as the number two vendor in terms of market share in the enterprise WLAN industry.”

The IDC MarketScape report is a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the characteristics that explain a vendor’s chances for present and future success worldwide. The study assesses the capabilities and strategies of 11 enterprise WLAN vendors and evaluates each vendor based on its strengths and weaknesses.

Of HPE-Aruba’s approach, the IDC MarketScape noted: “The flexibility of the company’s WLAN portfolio to span both on-premises and cloud-based management, along with a tightly-integrated switching platform, and robust management, security and analytics software tools combine to appeal to a broad spectrum of the market, from large enterprises to mid-size businesses.”

The IDC MarketScape specifically noted the strength of HPE-Aruba’s SD-Branch offering, the multiple management options available to customers with the cloud-based Aruba Central and on premises AirWave management platforms, and its “strong line of Ethernet switches, which creates a cohesive, single-vendor wired and wireless campus with advanced management, visibility and intelligence.” The IDC MarketScape also said that Aruba “receives among the highest marks for its breadth and depth of its customer support offerings, including the scope of its 24-hour support availability worldwide.”

“With the IDC MarketScape for Enterprise WLAN, Aruba has now been recognized as a leader by all of the leading research firms in the networking industry,” said Chris Kozup, chief marketing officer for Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company. “We’re gratified to see this recognition for our continued innovation, validated solutions and, of course, our long-time ‘customer first, customer last’ approach.”
