We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Cisco has one of the best products in terms of routing because of the protocols in which they provide."
"Most of the hardware is very stable."
"The most valuable feature is that we can specify the routing policies for our traffic."
"We achieve good performance in our data center."
"The routing feature is the solution's most valuable aspect."
"The VPN is the most valuable feature of this solution. The basic clients who don't use the VPN use it mostly for connectivity."
"The most valuable features of this solution are MPLS, BGP, and VRF."
"The solution is very stable. I have not seen any downtime due to the product freezing or anything like that. It performs well and hasn't required reboots unless it's to troubleshoot with a support service provider needing configuration. It doesn't overheat and it's on 24/7."
"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."
"In terms of room for improvement, I think that there is a need for additional administration."
"If they can negate or reduce the modem delay, that would be great."
"Some of our customers have asked that this solution have a 10G connection."
"We would like to see the security improved."
"The solution needs to offer some security features in a future release."
"The pricing could be improved."
"I would like to see the setup time reduced."
"If I only have one LAN port in which I want to connect more than one device, I have to buy an add-on card so that I can have two LAN ports. The smaller devices and low-end routers have about four LAN ports. This solution is a high-end device but has only one. It would be preferable if they offered more LAN ports."
"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."
"Cisco is mid-tier in terms of pricing and quite affordable by most enterprises."
"The cost of this solution is a little bit high compared to others."
"The price of this solution is high."
"The product is very expensive and does not provide the expected performance for the cost."
"Cisco routers are very pricey."
"The price is reasonable."
"Cisco Enterprise Routers are expensive."
"I am happy with the price of Cisco Enterprise Routers"
"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."
