Cons
"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."

More Huawei Enterprise Routers Cons »

"There has to be more development in the OS. It's complex for this switch as compared to others like Cisco. For NetGear and Cisco, it's easy to adapt the VLAN concept but it should be simplified for MikroTik.""Improvements are needed with respect to some of the security, especially for VPN links between vendors other than Cisco.""Antispam and antivirus features should be included in the future.""If MikroTik had a marketing team and support team in India then it would be much easier for us to get the product, as well as support.""The user interface could improve and they should allow a license for IBS."
