The CLI syntax.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.The technical documentation available is very good. The technical support for the customer is also good - I would give it 8 out of 10.Pricing-wise, Huawei is quite good.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.Huawei Ethernet switches are easy to use and can be managed using either the GUI or via the command-line.The HTTP features for security are very good. We use all of the regular features.They have the ability, since they have a very big R&D team, to create an upgrade for any feature or patch very easily.

Cons
The quality of the service needs improvement.When we have a lot of clients on the system, we lose signal and have to restart our antenna.The VLAN tagging could be improved,A lower price would be an improvement because we always want to reduce our costs.We have had some rare occasions with glitches, so the stability can be improved.In the next release, I would like to see them include more features like the Aruba solution, to have more possibilities concerning the software design.It would be helpful to have training available for this solution.This solution needs to support software-defined networking.

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.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.
