Shenzhen, China, October 28, 2019] Huawei's WLAN has been recognized as a Strong Performer in “The Forrester New WaveTM: Wireless Solutions, Q3 2019” report by Forrester Research, Inc. and is among the top-ranked in the current offering category.
In the report, Huawei’s AirEngine was deemed “differentiated” in five of the ten categories upon which all eight top vendors were measured including wireless connectivity, wireless hardware, configuration management, programmability, and solution positioning. And finally, Huawei’s AirEngine ranks among the top in the current offering category.
Forrester recognized that Huawei “is the best fit for companies needing to use multiple wireless technologies”. As part of its evaluation process, Forrester spoke directly with customers of each vendor, and in Huawei’s case, said that “Huawei garnered high marks from customers for the solution’s ability to support their IoT deployments under one platform. In addition, customers praised the company’s ability to create specialized solutions for a particular vertical’s needs, such as connectivity for electronic shelf labels.”
"The widely used of IoT technologies has accelerated the digital transformation of enterprises. More and more customers are considering and deploying the WLAN & IoT convergence network to enable their innovative digital services," said Zhao Zhipeng, President of Huawei's campus network. "We have predicted this change a few years ago. We believe that the digital wireless technologies of enterprises will be diversified in the future. However, the network infrastructure should not be constructed repeatedly. The converged access, unified management, and open ecosystem are the architecture of the enterprise's wireless network for future digital scenarios. Huawei has been recognized as a strong performer by Forrester in this field, which further confirms for us the differentiated wireless network solution that we continuously build on the enterprise wireless network.
