Udochi OdodoManager, Technical Planning and Solutions Design at Galaxy Backbone Ltd
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Scalability is good; the company wants to be able to handle large customers."
"Their GPS possibilities and the security that it has, especially the SD-WAN functionality, is very good."
"The interface is very user-friendly and it is quite easy to use."
"What I like best about this product are the support and the features."
"Ability to manage multiple firewalls."
"Good identity fire walling, malware protection and application control features."
"Its stability and SD-WAN features are the most valuable."
"Its ability to block incoming attacks is valuable. Its logging, traffic monitoring, and VPN capabilities are also valuable."
"The most valuable features for us are NAT, ATS, server capabilities, VPN tunneling, and management."
"When we started, the connection was amazing for the 100G between the switches and the co-switch. What the students typically use for school is a maximum is 40 so they now have faster technology."
"The configuration syntax makes it easy for us to configure the device and perform troubleshooting when needed."
"I have been able to connect the solution to many platforms such as Windows, Apple, and Android."
"Overall we have found the solution to be satisfactory."
"If you experience an attack it can take a very long time to find a solution."
"If you have another brand of VPN where you have to put an SSL VPN between two devices, Barracuda doesn't support that at a certain point. You can't actually build the VPN between Barracuda and a different device of a different brand."
"Technical support used to be at a very high level but it is now a bit less so."
"The interface should be more user-friendly and it should be easier to configure."
"Command line could be more user friendly."
"The analytics are weak."
"The administration UI could be better. It should also have better application detection policies."
"The biggest issue that I have with this solution is that it is not super intuitive. Once you know what to do, things make sense, but you can't just open the program and start doing things. It would be great if there was a little bit more guided usage inside the program."
"In the next release of this solution, I would like to see better bandwidth management, more granular web filtering, and portal authentication."
"In my country we don't have Huawei technology, we only have Huawei routers for ISP. There is no agent for Huawei in Egypt."
"Essentially, they need to open their licensing model such that when a customer buys a device, they have a full view of all of the available licenses for it."
"We have found we have to restart the routers or reconfigured them a lot of the time, this issue should improve. The quality of the hardware needs to be more durable."
"The solution costs more than 800 Euros to purchase an F18, which is an entry model, and then another 500 Euros for instant replacement, and 500 Euros for energized updates. The total package would be around 1,900 Euros for five years license and all updates for an entry model."
"The 600 series is about USD $10,000 a year and the 80 is USD $400 a year."
"Its licensing is on a yearly basis. There is an upfront purchase price, and there is also an annual maintenance fee. There are no additional fees."
"Huawei offers a cheaper enterprise router solution than Cisco."
"These routers are not too expensive."
"There is no licence for this solution, but the solution could be cheaper."
"The price of the solution is fair."
