Anapaya named as a Sample Vendor in Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Enterprise Networking, 2022
It comes two years after Gartner first named Anapaya as a Sample Vendor, first in 2020 Gartner Hype Cycle for Enterprise Networking 2020 and again later that year as a “Cool Vendor” in 2020 “Gartner Cool Vendors™ in Enhanced Internet Services and Cloud Connectivity.”
Gartner Hype Cycle is a graphical depiction of a common pattern that arises with each new technology or other innovation. Each year, Gartner creates more than 90 Hype Cycles in various domains as a way for clients to track technology maturity and future potential. The five phases in the Hype Cycle are Technology Trigger, Peak of Inflated Expectations, Trough of Disillusionment, Slope of Enlightenment and Plateau of Productivity.
The report states that the enhanced internet collection is “a collection of internet-based service offerings to improve the reliability and performance of internet-based traffic and applications.”
Anapaya is listed among other vendors offering telemetry-based routing and performance optimization. According to Gartner, “traditional MPLS services are often expensive and inflexible.” On the other hand, “enhanced internet capabilities and the requirements for a more assured internet service, with more secure and predictable performance, are becoming a talking point with a growing range of vendors in the industry.”.
Gartner recommends that users “evaluate OTT enhanced internet services when looking for more assured, high-performance internet-based connectivity, at least for those locations and applications that need additional assurance and performance.”

Gartner draws attention to the fact that “a growing number of SD-WAN, SASE and MSP vendors have already integrated enhanced internet capabilities to differentiate their offerings.” It then goes on to state that “the internet is not good enough in all regions or for all applications. Therefore, a need exists for a more assured, consistent internet experience” – a mission which our solution is based on.
