We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This solution is stable it runs without any interruptions."
"The stability of the program is excellent."
"The most important feature related to this solution is that most of the time, it covers all of what we need for our projects."
"it's a stable solution. We have not experienced any bugs or issues. Many data centers and enterprise data centers prefer Cisco to any other product because they are very stable."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the support."
"The most valuable feature of Cisco routers is that they are robust."
"The pricing of the solution is very good. It works well within our network."
"The most valuable feature is the dynamic routing."
"The velocity of the process is the most valuable feature."
"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."
"Scalability-wise, this solution is not designed for small businesses."
"In the next release I would really love to see a list option."
"In the future, I would like to see more focus on software-defined networking solutions."
"The drawbacks come from support. The tools are rare, but to find someone knowledgeable with Cisco, is a problem."
"The pricing for this solution needs to be improved."
"Having the option for a web-based interface would be an improvement over being forced to use the CLI."
"If possible, we'd like to see support in our country, but it will be difficult as we are located in Iran."
"The installation could be simplified."
"Integration could be improved. The price could also be lower."
"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."
"It's an affordable price for small companies using on-premises networks where cloud services are too expensive for them."
"If you look at the product portfolio from Cisco, it's quite expensive."
"The price of this solution is high, but it depends on the number of units that you want to order."
"I think that pricing should be more competitive. While the Cisco product is good, the pricing is not competitive. People will end up going with other cheaper solutions such as Arista."
"Cisco switches are a little expensive when it comes to the price."
"The price of Linksys products is pretty reasonable."
"The licensing cost is not bad and is actually very competitive within the product category."
"Pricing should be more competitive. There are other switches that are cheaper."
"We have a one-year license. There are no additional costs besides the licensing fee."
"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."
