TP-Link Recognized in 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure
SHENZHEN, China – Nov. 24, 2021 – TP-Link®, a leading provider of networking solutions, today announced its positioning by Gartner in the Niche Players quadrant of the 2021 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure for the third consecutive year.*
This marks three years in a row since 2019 for which TP-Link, a networking provider, is listed in the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure* and the Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure.†
We find this significant given Gartner’s inclusion criteria this year requiring vendors to “Provide production enterprise reference customers for at least four of the five geographic regions” — a criteria not present in last year’s report.‡ TP-Link sees this and the included vendors needing to “Have no more than 55% of revenue generated in any one country in a single region” (down from 80%‡) as signs the market is looking for enterprise LAN infrastructure solutions that span the globe.
As such, TP-link has continued to achieve significant growth worldwide and offers a comprehensive portfolio of enterprise products and solutions to businesses at any scale and for various scenarios. The business products of TP-Link include Omada SDN (controllers, access points, switches, and routers), JetStream and LiteWave Switches, SafeStream Business Routers, and Pharos Wireless Broadband — ideal for hospitality, education, retail, and more.
“We believe our continued inclusion in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure is confirmation of our commitment to providing businesses large and small equal opportunity in establishing networks that will keep them secure and connected,” said Pingji Li, GM of the Network Business Department at TP-Link. “Our thanks go out to our incredible R&D team and to all of our partners and customers whose constant support enables us to pursue the development of a simple and smart lifestyle for all.”
In another WLAN Tracker report by leading research firm IDC, TP-Link has consistently ranked as the World’s No. 1 Wi-Fi product provider for over a decade based on worldwide shipments (Q2 2021 release).§ With a proven heritage of stability, performance, and value, TP-Link has continued its leadership in the WLAN market, striving to meet the networking needs for both consumer and business markets.
