Cons
The only problem is that at the moment it's an Extreme product and Extreme is not really pushing it. They have to make up for weak innovation and I'm not sure if they want to do that.

I had issues with patching the IOS. But right now I think Huawei has improved very much in the advanced technology and is more stable now. I think patch and bug fixes should be announced on a scheduled basis.Dashboard could be improved.The technical support is a bit difficult to work with if you don't speak Mandarin.The knowledge base needs to be improved and expanded.It could potentially be difficult to get parts depending on where you live.The availability and the speed of the firmware updates are the only things wrong with Huawei. There are some vulnerabilities on the hardware.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.In the next release, I would like to see an increase in the performance of DDoS protection systems against all kinds of attack packets.
