Cuadrante mágico

Así traducido y en seco, me recuerda a un anuncio muy antigüo “cruzado mágico”, en una etapa de mi vida donde las hormonas estaban empezando a dispararse y donde los Angeles de Charly y un jersey ceñido eran el culmen del erotismo televisivo.

Pero nada que ver con la adolescencia, aunque si algo con la magía de los brujos de la tribu, a falta de chamanes que se comuniquen con los espiritús, pero cumpliendo la misma función de anticiparnos el futuro, los consultores nos dicen cuantos switches se venderán en el 2014 y que porcentaje de cámaras serán IP en el 2022.

Uno de los informes más reputados, son los cuadrantes de Gartner, en los que intentan objetivar la posición de mercado de los diferentes fabricantes en un determinado segmento de mercado, en este caso, celebramos que, como buenos consultores Gartner nos dice lo que ya sabíamos. Que Alcatel-Lucent tiene un clara visión del mundo del networking pero que todavía no está entre los lideres, claro que ellos lo dicen mucho más bonito.

Alcatel-Lucent positioned in Visionaries Quadrant
Alcatel-Lucent has been positioned as Visionary in the recently published 2012 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure. This placement into the Visionaries quadrant recognizes that Alcatel-Lucent’s Application Fluent Network strategy and extensive product portofolio can help entreprises solve their current challenges of meeting the burgeoning demands of a new generation of devices and multi-media rich applications.

Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) has a strong campus and enterprise portfolio. The company has a global, direct-touch sales organization that supports roughly 85% of sales though its distribution channel, complemented by a direct sales organization that supports the remainder of its sales through direct fulfillment. We typically see adoption of ALU’s LAN portfolio most often in EMEA, though a split of global revenue is roughly 45% in EMEA, 30% in the Americas and 25% in Asia/Pacific.
ALU’s marketing focus has been on the enterprise market and installed-base opportunities, augmented by sales of its enterprise solutions to carriers, managed service providers and strategic vertical industries such as government, energy, utilities and transportation. ALU should be on the shortlist for any European wired or wireless infrastructure decisions, with consideration for other geographical areas.
The introduction of ALU’s Application Fluent Network approach ties the network infrastructure together from end to end. While the OmniSwitch LAN portfolio and its Safe Network Access Control solution provides ALU with strong authentication and policy enforcement applications, tighter integration is needed for other applications such as network management, currently supplied as a separate application for wired LANS and WLANs.
Strengths
• ALU has a strong networking strategy and is executing not only with platform development, but also with a strong orchestration message that integrates network applications that complement its offering.
• ALU has a full range of stackable switches that provides flexibility at the edge of the network.
• The release of ALU’s Multimedia Fluency capabilities will enhance its strong voice capabilities by capturing information that allows mean opinion score (MOS), latency and jitter information to monitor the infrastructure.
