Gartner defines AI in CSP network operations as commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) offerings (either embedded in operational technology [OT] applications or as a horizontal application) with capabilities to utilize network operations data, develop and evolve algorithms. It also can manage the life cycle of algorithms, applying them to a variety of use cases that optimizes and enhances CSP network operations.
The data center and cloud networking vendors covered in this market provide hardware and/or software solutions to deliver connectivity primarily within enterprise data centers. This includes data center core/spine switches, access switches (top of rack [ToR], leaf), virtual switching, Ethernet fabrics, network operating systems (NOSs) and network overlays, and the requisite management, automation and orchestration of those components.
Gartner defines the enterprise wired and wireless LAN infrastructure market as that of vendors supplying wired and wireless networking hardware, and the related network software. Products in this market enable devices and end users to connect to the enterprise wired LAN or Wi-Fi network in support of the required organizational mission. Supported network devices are inclusive of end-user-operated devices such as laptops, smartphones and networked office equipment; and non-user-operated devices such as Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
Gartner defines the indoor location service market as “the hardware, software and service components that provide indoor location coordinates and services.” Indoor location solutions use differing algorithms, techniques, frequencies and architectures to achieve the core functionality of the indoor location market, which is to provide the location of a static/mobile asset or person within one meter or three feet. The components of an indoor location service solution may include: Hardware, Software and Management applications.

Network Automation and Orchestration Tools automate the maintenance of virtual and physical network device configurations, providing an opportunity to lower costs, reduce human error and improve compliance with configuration policies.
Network firewalls secure traffic bidirectionally across networks. Although these firewalls are primarily deployed as hardware appliances, clients are increasingly deploying virtual appliance firewalls, cloud-native firewalls from infrastructure as a service (IaaS) providers, and firewall as a service (FWaaS) offerings hosted directly by vendors. Capabilities of network firewalls include: Application awareness and control Intrusion detection and prevention Advanced malware detection Logging and reporting
WAN edge infrastructure enables network connectivity from distributed enterprise locations to access resources in both private and public data centers as well as cloud (as a service). It is typically procured by senior networking leaders within an infrastructure and operations (I&O) organization. This market has evolved from traditional branch routers (often called “customer edge routers” in a Multiprotocol Label Switching [MPLS] implementation), and is undergoing dramatic change, driven by the needs of digital business transformation and the demands of line-of-business managers. The market for branch office wide-area network functionality is shifting from dedicated routing, security and WAN optimization appliances to feature-rich SD-WAN and vCPE platforms. WAN edge infrastructure now incorporates a widening set of network functions, including secure routers, firewalls, SD-WAN, WAN path control and WAN optimization, along with traditional routing functionality.
