SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARUN) today announced that in Gartner Inc.’s latest “Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure” report, Aruba has been positioned in the Leader’s quadrant for the third consecutive year.

The 2014 “Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure” marks the third time that Gartner has combined wireless and wired LAN infrastructure into one report. Each year, Aruba has appeared in the Leader’s quadrant.

In the new Magic Quadrant report, Gartner continues, as it has previously, to evaluate vendors based on two criteria: completeness of vision and ability to execute. It includes a summary of each vendor, as well as an assessment of each vendor’s strengths and weaknesses.

“We believe Aruba’s consistent position in the Leader’s quadrant is testament to the breadth and depth of our mobility solutions, our strong market presence and loyal customer base,” said Ben Gibson, Chief Marketing Officer, Aruba Networks. “In the past year, we introduced our Mobility-Defined Networks to give enterprises a roadmap for delivering the all-wireless network to meet the needs of #GenMobile, and we innovated in critical areas like cloud Wi-Fi, indoor location-based services and 802.11ac. We’re pleased that Gartner has once again acknowledged Aruba’s vision and execution.”
