We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features for us are NAT, ATS, server capabilities, VPN tunneling, and management."
"When we started, the connection was amazing for the 100G between the switches and the co-switch. What the students typically use for school is a maximum is 40 so they now have faster technology."
"The configuration syntax makes it easy for us to configure the device and perform troubleshooting when needed."
"I have been able to connect the solution to many platforms such as Windows, Apple, and Android."
"Overall we have found the solution to be satisfactory."
"It gives you that level of visibility to understand what's going on between layer four and layer seven."
"The support is very good from Juniper and from the local distributors."
"In the next release of this solution, I would like to see better bandwidth management, more granular web filtering, and portal authentication."
"In my country we don't have Huawei technology, we only have Huawei routers for ISP. There is no agent for Huawei in Egypt."
"Essentially, they need to open their licensing model such that when a customer buys a device, they have a full view of all of the available licenses for it."
"We have found we have to restart the routers or reconfigured them a lot of the time, this issue should improve. The quality of the hardware needs to be more durable."
"The training could be better. When it comes to the demo dashboard capability, I feel like it could be much easier for our customers to use. Our last customer complained about this."
"The solution installs similarly to competitors. It is not more difficult or easier. However, it could be easier and take less time for the installation."
"Huawei offers a cheaper enterprise router solution than Cisco."
"These routers are not too expensive."
"There is no licence for this solution, but the solution could be cheaper."
"The price of the solution is fair."
"The licensing structure is very flexible."
"The cost of the solution is a little expensive. The hardware is a one-time purchase fee and the software is purchased on an annual basis. There are additional costs for other software features that are available which are on an annual basis, such as extra capacity."
