We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This is a dependable switch which will help you sleep at night."
"The solution has a very good web interface. It makes it easy to manage everything."
"We are able to customize this solution based on the customer's requirements."
"Enables direct access to clusters."
"The fibre ports that are 10 Gb capacity helped with the travel of a lot of regular as well as video data. Fibre can handle a lot more virtual data than copper twisted-pair, so we got a lot more data and a lot more traffic signals back through the fibre ports, faster, than with copper."
"They have the ability, since they have a very big R&D team, to create an upgrade for any feature or patch very easily."
"The HTTP features for security are very good. We use all of the regular features."
"Huawei Ethernet switches are easy to use and can be managed using either the GUI or via the command-line."
"The most valuable feature is the audit systems. I also like that it can synchronize on the alternate configuration of products together at the same time."
"Pricing-wise, Huawei is quite good."
"The technical documentation available is very good. The technical support for the customer is also good - I would give it 8 out of 10."
"When you buy a switch from Huawei, the switches come along with a lot of features that you do not need to pay extra money for."
"The CLI syntax."
"The product would be better if it were completely compatible with other switching products."
"There needs to be better integration with the interface."
"In future versions, I would like to see improvements in networking speed."
"technical support response time is sometimes very slow."
"I could see them possibly creating a more intuitive software. It's very user-friendly, but there are some things that aren't very intuitive when programming the switches."
"The interoperability of the devices, in general, on the Huawei switches is not good and is known to be not good. Maybe they can improve this a bit."
"The GUI could be improved. It could be much more adaptable."
"One of the problems with Huawei is that when you receive a product quote from one of the vendors, you cannot get prices from the other ones because they register your request with Huawei."
"In the next release, I would like to see an increase in the performance of DDoS protection systems against all kinds of attack packets."
"There needs to be more documentation. If they opened up a bit and shared more information and maybe allowed for YouTube videos about their products and how to work them, it would benefit the users quite a bit."
"The availability and the speed of the firmware updates are the only things wrong with Huawei. There are some vulnerabilities on the hardware."
"The technical support is a bit difficult to work with if you don't speak Mandarin."
"The knowledge base needs to be improved and expanded."
"The pricing is reasonable compared to Aruba and HPE."
"The exact pricing varies based on how many units you purchase."
"Huawei comes with a lot of features out of the box that you have to pay extra for with other products. They do charge extra in the licensing for certain additional features."
"The price of Huawei ethernet switches is cheap."
"The product is competitively priced in its market."
"It's a reasonable price, cheaper than some other vendors."
"The price is one of the only issues I have regarding this solution."
"The switch came as part of a package bundle that includes internet service."
"Compared to other brands, I think that the price is quite fair."
