A Gartner Magic
Quadrant Player

Arelion named in Gartner’s 2022 Magic Quadrant for Global Network Services.

For three consecutive years, Arelion (formerly known as Telia Carrrier) has been recognized in Gartner’s ’Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Network Services, Global’.

Gartner evaluates global network providers based on completeness of vision and ability to execute. To be included, service providers need to have a global network with coverage across Europe, North America and Asia, sell services to customers in all three regions, and offer a full portfolio of networking services such as WAN transport, Cloud interconnect, managed SD-WAN and NFV/vCPE. 

“Being included in the Magic Quadrant shows that we have the capabilities to serve enterprises looking for a lean and responsive networking provider, who can provide them with a smooth transition towards cloud-based IT and SD-WAN, wherever they do business. 

“We believe that our recognition in the Quadrant is supported by the market transformation towards Cloud and Internet connectivity. Our top-rated global Internet backbone and Cloud ecosystem put us in a unique position to serve these needs”.
