Gartner Cites MetTel a Leader in MNS for Third Straight Year

MetTel has been named a Leader in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Network Services (MNS) for a third consecutive year.

According to the 2022 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Managed Network Services, “I&O leaders will find that key differentiators among providers include level of support, network operations automation, service delivery expertise and, ultimately, customer experience. As the enterprise invests in complex cloud, virtualization and IT infrastructure, careful consideration of these elements beyond simple managed device types (i.e., routers and switches) is imperative.”

MetTel CEO Marshall Aronow said of the recognition, “We believe this is a reflection of our commitment to our enterprise clients as a strategic partner for network management, that brings together automation-enhanced network management with SD-WAN, security, network access and now POTS Transformation in a seamless managed service.”

According to the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Network Services, “By the end of 2024, more than 50 percent of software-defined, wide-area network (SD-WAN) customers will be actively adopting secure access service edge (SASE) architecture, compared with approximately 35 percent in 2021.”

MetTel CTO Ed Fox said, “The accelerating pace of technology advancement, widening IT skills gap and perma-crisis new normal have all driven the need for fully managed services. IT enterprises today need the assurance of available skilled and automated resources and a network that runs itself, regardless of macro-economic or business conditions.”
