PHILADELPHIA – March 22, 2022 – Comcast Business today announced it has been recognized on Vertical Systems Group’s year-end 2021 U.S. Carrier Managed SD-WAN Services LEADERBOARD. Comcast Business jumped to the second place position, up from fourth place in 2020, based on site share which includes organic growth plus sites added from the recent acquisition of Masergy.
Comcast Business was joined on the LEADERBOARD benchmark by AT&T, Hughes, Verizon, Windstream, Lumen, and Arayaka. Each LEADERBOARD service provider has two percent or more of the installed and billable Carrier Managed SD-WAN customer sites in the U.S. as of December 31, 2021.

Comcast Business achieved the second place position with the largest share increase across all service providers ranked on the 2021 U.S SD-WAN LEADERBOARD. Comcast Business is the only Cable MSO represented on this year's benchmark and gained share via organic growth from activations of customer networks, as well as sites added from the acquisition of Masergy in October 2021.
“The U.S. Managed SD-WAN services market emerged from the pandemic in 2021 with solid growth in new site installations, driven by accelerated network transformations and more flexible solutions for customers,” said Rick Malone, principal of Vertical Systems Group. “Competition is heating up as evidenced by the shake up in top provider rankings on our year-end 2021 U.S. LEADERBOARD benchmark.”
