Cons
"The solution needs better local support.""In a future release, the solution could improve by being more secure and allowing the configuration of each port.""They could be more stable. They were not as resistant as Cisco. After some time, some of them failed. This could be because we import quite a lot of products from different horizons, so there is no guarantee of quality. In Africa, these products don't always directly come from the manufacturer. We get these products from the Middle East or Asia. Therefore, you cannot be sure that the quality is exactly similar to what you have in Europe or America.""I would like an option to create different networks within the switch.""We have issues with the stability.""It should be more stable, and it should have good integration with the cloud. It should support configuration, supervision, and control through the cloud."

"If there is any fluctuation in power then we will face an outage with our POE switches, so this is something that should be improved.""Authentication and other security features are not easily satisfied using the lower-end switches.""It would be better if they improve the implementation of SD-WAN.""Technical support needs improvement, as the response time could be better.""The solution is very comparable to Huawei, however, it could be more scalable. Huawei is easier to scale.""The solution is a bit expensive.""It is not very stable.""Configuration can be complex."
