Riedel Networks, an enterprise of Riedel Communications, today announced that the company has been recognized for the first time on the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global. With the newly published 2021 edition of the Magic Quadrant, Riedel Networks joins 18 global network services providers that met the strict criteria including Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone, Telefonica, and Verizon.
The premier IT industry consulting and analysis firm, Gartner is well-known for its Magic Quadrants, giving enterprise technology buyers an unbiased assessment of how well competing providers are performing against Gartner's market view and is supplemented by validated user reviews.
“Getting named to the Gartner Magic Quadrant is an accolade and a real milestone for our company. It’s true recognition of our mission to become one of the world’s most valued brands for customized data communication networks,” said Michael Martens, CEO of Riedel Networks. “For us, being identified as a Niche Player is a good thing. Riedel Networks has a strong focus on mid-sized multinationals that are seeking for global managed network services. A real differentiator is that our network and SD-WAN offer is 100% Cisco-based. Hence allowing us to focus on service delivery rather than interoperability with several different hard- and software vendors."
Furthermore Martens concludes "We may not have the market presence of some of the incumbents, but we prefer being known as a company that is able to give close, personal attention to each customer and talk to people. And there’s plenty more on the horizon, such as our upcoming universal CPE solution based on an Enterprise Network Compute System that will offer NFVs on SD-WAN edge devices.”
