Juniper Mist recognized as a Leader in Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure

1 min. read


Over four years ago, Mist Systems launched the first AI-driven wireless platform. At the time, people frankly didn’t know what to make of it.

In 2016, Mist was getting a lot of push back from the rest of the industry. “How does a startup take on WLAN behemoths like Aruba and Cisco?” We were asked, “Is it really AI?” “Why does AI even matter?” and “Will people think AI is coming to take their jobs?” You get the idea. So Mist forged on, and that year Gartner also recognized Mist Systems as one of the Cool Vendors in Mobile and Wireless, 2016.

As industry veterans, the Mist team knew that the old, reactive and manual way of managing networks had to give way to a new, proactive paradigm focused on user experiences and self-driving automation. And the only way to achieve this was to break free from the 15+ year-old WLAN controller paradigm and start fresh with AI-driven networks born in the modern cloud.

Fast forward to today – in just a few short years, our partner Juniper Networks has been named a Leader in the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure. The Magic Quadrant is hot off the presses and Juniper is positioned highest for execution in the Leaders’ Quadrant.
