We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"It has improved my organization by increasing troubleshooting opportunities which makes things more efficient.""This solution gives you a lot of reporting capabilities, and it has a very good interface.""This solution is definitely stable."

More Aruba Airwave Pros »

"The most important features are alarm management and the visualization of the health of our network devices.""I like the real-time location monitor or RTLS feature. It is similar to the monitoring feature in Cisco Prime."

More Huawei eSight Pros »

"Whenever you get an error it doesn't immediately tell you what the thing is that is causing the error. You have to sit down and research it. If it could say what error is causing the issue, it would make my troubleshooting a lot quicker.""I would like to see an integration of services into one system, rather than having multiple systems to do multiple things.""The integration with other platforms like Cisco needs to be improved."

More Aruba Airwave Cons »

"The solution needs to improve it's user interface to make it more modern and stylish. They need to design proper menu positions, features, etc. Right now the layout is complicated.""eSight has many features and options, but sometimes, we feel that it should be more advanced, like Cisco. It would be good if they can enable some automation part in eSight. Most of our customers want automation in their network. They don't want a dependency on everything. That's why the automation part must be improved in Huawei. It will be beneficial for customers. Cisco has different products, and there are multiple products for monitoring, automation, etc. In the software-defined network, Cisco has ACI, and VMware has NSX. Such options must be there in Huawei to move to a software-defined network. Unlike Cisco, in the case of eSight, there is only one product. I am not aware of any other product. It would be good to enhance it with at least some automation options so that we can use it effectively in the campus network or big data center environment. When I implemented this Huawei solution, I faced some limitations in particular areas like wireless scanning. This is another part that they can improve. Wireless reporting option is not as effective as other monitoring solutions. For a particular use case, if a customer is asking for some reports, sometimes they are not 100% satisfactory. The reporting structure must be improved."

More Aruba Airwave Pricing and Cost Advice »
