RIEDEL Networks recognized as a Niche Player in the 2024 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Global WAN Services Report

Butzbach, June 3, 2024: RIEDEL Networks has once again been included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Global WAN Services.

“We are pleased to be the only private network service provider recognized in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Global WAN Services and excited to be recognized as a niche provider,” says Michael Martens, CEO of RIEDEL Networks. “We believe that this once again confirms our commitment and focus on the specific requirements of medium-sized, multinational companies and the dynamic media and events sector.”

Based in Butzbach near Frankfurt, the Internet and financial center of Germany, RIEDEL Networks’ extensive network spans 21 countries and is complemented by a robust Internet backbone. Each Point of Presence (POP) is strategically located in third-party or colocation facilities and guarantees optimal connectivity thanks to over 350 partners. The network and SD-WAN offering from RIEDEL Networks is 100 percent Cisco-based, allowing the company to focus on service delivery rather than the integrability of different hardware and software vendors.

“We are continuously expanding our offering of seamless connectivity for 13 leading cloud providers, focusing on managed network services worldwide. Our commitment is to provide solutions that integrate different networks such as private IP (MPLS) or public IP (Internet), SD-WAN or SASE,” continues Martens. This targeted approach ensures optimized compatibility, an integrated overlay and security functions via a single end device.
