Analyst firm Gartner has positioned Vodafone Business as a “Leader” in its 2019 Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global.
The Quadrant looks at 15 vendors in the global network services market, which Gartner defines as the delivery of fixed corporate networking services with worldwide coverage.
In this year’s Magic Quadrant, Gartner evaluated established global network services including WAN services, cloud connectivity, as well as emerging global network services including SD-WAN services, network on-demand services, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) services and Virtual Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE).
Vodafone’s positioning as “Leader” is based on our “ability to execute” and “completeness of vision”, both of which we believe have improved greatly in the last 12 months, partly down to our continued focus on improving customer service, operational capabilities and network coverage.
Gartner describes companies in the “Leader” quadrant as:
“Providers in the Leaders quadrant are performing well today and maintain a stable organization with a clear vision of market direction. They deliver comprehensive portfolios of network services, across broad geographies, with good service quality. They address the global networking needs of a broad range of enterprises is terms of size, geographic distribution and vertical industry. Leaders shape the direction of the market by extending their coverage, developing new class-leading capabilities and new commercial models, and deploying these at scale.”
For this reason, we feel that being positioned as a “Leader” helps to reinforce our vision and cement our commitment to helping businesses succeed in a digital world.
