The WAN Edge Infrastructure Magic Quadrant encompasses all WAN-edge services (Routing, SD-WAN, WAN OPT, Firewalls) with Gartner identifying a total of 20 vendors that met their qualifications for the MQ.

In this report Gartner analyzes 3 popular use cases for WAN Edge:

  • Midsize Enterprise/Regional WAN: A small, most likely regional, WAN that fits MSEs and similar environments with fewer than 50 sites
  • Large Global WAN: Requirements include the ability to scale to hundreds of sites, across multiple geographic regions
  • Small Footprint Retail WAN: A small footprint retail WAN environment requires security and virtualized application services, and to simply replicate environments across a very large number of sites
