Huawei Wireless Review

Easy to configure with good technical support and good stability

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution at home. We primarily use the solution for internet use.

What is most valuable?

The product is easy to use. 

The signal is very stable and it offers very good performance. For network devices it is great.

The most important aspect of the solution is that it is cheap. It beats solutions at a higher cost.

We've found the solution to be quite stable.

The scalability is okay.

The speed of the product is pretty good.

I've found that the configuration is quite simple to handle.

Technical support has always been quite helpful.

The initial setup is very easy and the deployment is very fast.

What needs improvement?

The scalability could be a bit better.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for about five years or so at this point. It's been a while.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is very good. The features support Wi-Fi 6 and it is using very stable technology.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is okay. If a company needs to expand, it can do so with relative ease. It shouldn't give you any trouble. However, they could always make it a bit better and even more scalable.

I simply use it at home for personal usage. I don't have a need to scale it out too much.

How are customer service and technical support?

The solution is a local brand and we have local support, It's quite good. I find support to be better than Cisco, to be honest. I'm quite satisfied with the level of service they provide to us.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I also have experience with Cisco.

Both are good brands and good network device providers. Huawei may be the one to choose based on the requirements and based on the bandwidth. Different providers have different costs and a few different features. However, both brands are okay and are good.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was not complex. It was pretty straightforward. It's very easy. A company shouldn't have any issue with the process.

The deployment took less than half an hour.

What about the implementation team?

I handled the implementation myself. I did not need a consultant or integrator.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing of the solution is excellent. It's much cheaper than the competition. The pricing is a great selling point.

I don't pay for licensing. I just pay for the device.

What other advice do I have?

We are just a customer and an end-user. 

We are using the latest version of the solution.

I'd recommend the solution to other users and organizations.

I'd rate the product at an eight out of ten. We're mostly quite happy with the product, especially the excellent pricing.
