Brocade Communications Systems, Inc. (BRCD) announced the company has achieved leader status in the IHS Markit Wireless LAN Infrastructure Vendor Scorecard – 2016 for Ruckus Wireless’ significant presence in the market and fast-paced momentum in wireless LAN growth. Brocade acquired Ruckus Wireless in May 2016, and Ruckus now operates as a business unit within Brocade. Prior to the acquisition, Ruckus was already the largest standalone vendor of WLAN products.
According to IHS, “Due to market consolidation, the WLAN vendor landscape has bifurcated into end-to-end networking providers that can address the whole range of enterprise networking requirements and specialists that focus on a particular niche or new ways of solving old problems. The leaders—Brocade, Cisco, and HPE Aruba—are end-to-end networking providers that compete broadly in all segments of the market, leveraging the completeness of their portfolio and their installed bases.”
“Brocade is honored to be recognized as a leader in the IHS Markit WLAN Scorecard,” said Dan Rabinovitsj, chief operating officer, Ruckus Wireless business unit at Brocade. “We continue to offer our customers high-performing wireless technology, and the recognition by IHS further validates the considerable steps we’ve taken this year in the enterprise WLAN infrastructure market—a market that many forecast will continue to experience growth due to the rise in Internet traffic and next-gen connected devices. We look forward to further supporting our customers’ WLAN needs.”
