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."
"The SpeedFusion feature is the most valuable."
"The SpeedFusion feature is good. It allowed us to move away from IPsec between the sites. It is also a really easy product to deploy."
"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."
"Its pricing is the main issue. The pricing could be improved. I would like to see an outbound policy based on the application. It is a very good feature, and most of the customers are looking for that. They can also include stronger firewall features. This would help the customers in choosing this product as the only device for the SD network."
"Their hardware support isn't the greatest. We've had one unit go down, and it took a while for them to replace it. It was in the Caribbeans, so it might be a location-related issue."
"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."
"It has lifetime licensing. Its pricing is high for most of the markets."
"Its licensing fee is on a yearly basis. For the price, it is actually pretty good value."
