    Microland, a global digital transformation company announced today that it 
has been recognized as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed 
Network Services. The detailed report is available at

    Gartner evaluated vendors on multiple parameters. Assessment was based on 
two service categories of managed LAN & Managed WAN / WLAN and five management 
attributes of service delivery platform, service management functions, 
operations automation, customer experience management & professional services 
that are Core capabilities for Managed Network Services. 

    The report projects that "By 2023, 40% of enterprise buyers will demand 
standardized service definitions from managed network services (MNS) providers, 
up from 15% in 2018" and that "By 2024, to enhance agility and support for 
cloud applications, 60% of enterprises will have implemented SD-WAN, compared 
with about 30% in 2020."

    According to the report "The MNS market consists of globally capable 
providers of MNS that provide service management functions for the operation of 
enterprise networks." "The providers in this market are either Network Service 
Providers (NSPs) or non-NSPs, as both types are common in this market."
