We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"These switches are very easy to install because there is no configuration."
"Its integration is the most valuable."
"I can't find anything wrong with our D-Link Ethernet Switches."
"These switches are simple and easy to configure."
"The solution is scalable."
"The product is simple to manage."
"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."
"I would like an option to create different networks within the switch."
"It should be more stable, and it should have good integration with the cloud. It should support configuration, supervision, and control through the cloud."
"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."
"We have issues with the stability."
"The solution needs better local support."
"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."
"The D-Link Switches are cheaper than Cisco."
"These units vary in price from $200 to one thousand dollars. They're available for a one-time purchase."
"They were cheap. We were not paying for any license."
"The solution is budget-friendly"
"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."
