SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aruba Networks, an HP company, (NYSE: HPQ) today announced that in Gartner Inc.’s latest “Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure” report, Hewlett Packard (Aruba Networks) has been positioned in the Leader’s quadrant for the fourth consecutive year.

The 2015 “Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure” marks the fourth 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.

“This year, HP acquired Aruba Networks,” said Chris Kozup, Vice President of Marketing for Aruba Networks, an HP company. “While Gartner has acknowledged Aruba’s completeness of vision and ability to execute in the past, we feel that we’re in an even stronger position now that we have joined forces. With the breadth of HP’s switching portfolio and Aruba’s innovations in mobility, we believe we’ll continue to give enterprises the best solutions for their networking needs.”
