The Time for the Hybrid WAN IT has gone through a significant evolution over the past decade. Virtualization has changed the entire face of the data center, the network edge has become predominantly wireless and consumer devices reign supreme. However, one of the few areas of IT that has yet to evolve is the corporate wide area network (WAN). Managing the WAN is something network managers have always struggled with because WAN speeds are typically an order of magnitude, or more, slower than local area networks (LANs).
This IDC study represents the vendor assessment model called the IDC MarketScape. This research is a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the characteristics that explain a vendor's success in the marketplace and help anticipate the vendor's ascendancy. The study assesses the capability and business strategy of 12 of the top enterprise wireless LAN (WLAN) vendors.
Cisco Validated Designs (CVDs) present systems that are based on common use cases or engineering priorities. CVDs incorporate a broad set of technologies, features, and applications that address customer needs. Cisco engineers have comprehensively tested and documented each design in order to ensure faster, more reliable, and fully predictable deployment.

The study assesses the capability and business strategy of 12 of the top enterprise wireless LAN (WLAN) vendors. This evaluation is based on a comprehensive framework and a set of parameters expected to be most conducive to success in providing enterprise WLAN solutions, during both the short term and the long term. As the enterprise WLAN market is highly competitive and relatively mature, all vendors performed relatively well in the study.
Employees who can work securely anywhere help Cisco gain revenues, improve productivity, and deliver better customer service.
Employees are mobile because we support everyone with technology and policies that allow them to work flexibly in terms of time, place, and device. We deliver this capability through Cisco products for secure wireless LAN (WLAN) and home and remote access (Cisco Virtual Office and VPN), as well as softphones, Cisco® WebEx®, Cisco Spark™, and extension mobility features. Our bring your own device (BYOD) policies and program allow employees to use their personal mobile devices to access the Cisco network, after the device is registered and confirmed as compliant with our security requirements for making it a secure or trusted device.
We evaluate enterprise LAN vendors providing wired and wireless access layer connectivity. Network leaders should evaluate vendors based on their ability to offer the same network applications across both the wired and wireless infrastructure and address new IoT challenges.
