Gartner Places Verizon in Leaders Quadrant

Verizon Enterprise Solutions has been placed in the Leader quadrant in Gartner’s new reports “Magic Quadrant for Global Network Service Providers” and “Magic Quadrant for Pan-European Network Service Providers.”

Magic Quadrants provide a graphical competitive positioning of technology providers, where market growth is high and provider differentiation is distinct.

To be placed in the Leaders quadrant, a company must execute well against its current vision and be well positioned for tomorrow. Leaders should also possess a vision for including more information and communications technology (ICT) capabilities along with wide European/Global coverage and competitive pricing.  

Verizon’s voice, data and managed network services, evaluated by Gartner, include multiprotocol label switching (MPLS), IPsec virtual private networks (VPN) and Ethernet services, along with SIP trunking with security, unified communications and data center services for enterprise customers across multiple geographies. The new reports look into Verizon’s capability to offer fixed corporate-networking services on a global and Pan-European basis.

“We’ve continued to invest heavily to expand our high-IQ networks globally, including our 100 Gbps deployment on portions of our U.S. and European network and our recent network expansions in Africa, Middle East and Asia,” said Farooq Muzaffar, Verizon’s vice president of product development and network integration. “Verizon’s networks, advanced technology platforms and industry-specific solutions are creating new business opportunities for our customers worldwide.”

Verizon added that by deploying advanced ICT solutions, one can securely exchange data insights anytime and easily collaborate with people virtually anywhere. The company can help by providing customizable, comprehensive solutions tailored to meet the needs of users’ specific industry, whether they work in retail, finance, healthcare, energy or government.

Verizon Enterprise Solutions recently partnered with Virtual Hold Technology for improvements in call centers’ callback practices through voice-based technology.
