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."
"First and foremost, it enables the customer to deploy high availability connections. This kind of solution enables them to deploy these HA connections for policies mostly automatically. It's a more automated approach than with other vendors."
"We had several clients that were paying $7,500 a month for an MPLS line for one single 10 megabit circuit and we were able to take that from $7,500 a month down to $500 a month for two 10 megabits circuits that added redundancy where before they did not have redundancy and it gave them a much better throughput."
"The most valuable feature is the support for asymmetric lines."
"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."
"They have to implement more security with it. The security, mainly their firewall functions, have to be included in the firewall features."
"Their WAN optimization in terms of wireless connectivity doesn't have a very good cellular capability."
"The security can be improved, with the firewall for example, because they supply a basic one but not a UTM."
"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."
"You typically will license the hardware and you license the software to access the hardware capabilities. The price will range anywhere from a hundred to $300 a month. There are no additional costs."
"The licensing fees depend on the bandwidth. As an example of what we charge our customers, for 100MB without Boost, the price is approximately $2,000. That includes the licensing and the unit."
