Recognized for Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

Leading research and analyst firm Gartner, Inc. named AT&T* a Leader in its report, “2018 Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global1,” for the 14th consecutive time.

Gartner states that “IT and Operations (I&O) leaders must evaluate new network services from global providers, including SD-WAN, SIP trunking and NFV.”

We feel that we’re in a unique category as our intelligent network platform brings everything together for our business customers – edge-to-edge, from end points to connectivity to the cloud. And it’s all wrapped in security.  

“In our view, this recognition underscores the significance of our edge-to-edge technologies, and the value we can bring to businesses of any size, and in any industry,” said Roman Pacewicz, chief product officer, AT&T Business.

“Enterprise networks are only getting more sophisticated. It’s all about giving customers more choices. Businesses want to customize their networks as their needs evolve and technology changes. We’re honored to be recognized. We believe it’s a testament to for our ability to help our customers transform and drive their businesses forward,” said Pacewicz.

In this Magic Quadrant, Gartner evaluated global enterprise network service providers’ ability to execute and completeness of vision. The report states, “Providers of global enterprise network services are responding to clients' transformational requirements to support agile, digital business underpinned by migration to IaaS and SaaS.”

The report provides a framework and a graphical view of the relative positions of a specific market’s competitors. It evaluated the breadth of each company’s completeness of vision and how well that technology provider is executing their stated vision.

According to the report, “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 in 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.”

This is why we believe being a Leader positioned in the upper right quadrant is so rewarding for AT&T.

As we continue to transform our network from hardware to software, we’re helping businesses do the same through delivering edge-to-edge technologies. Our portfolio helps businesses meet future needs and give customers more flexibility and control of their networking services.
