Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most important features are alarm management and the visualization of the health of our network devices.""I like the real-time location monitor or RTLS feature. It is similar to the monitoring feature in Cisco Prime.""I like that it supports all our Huawei devices. Unlike other network monitoring tools that monitor Huawei devices, it provides more details when it comes to monitoring or management. We can get complete details about the devices, and management is also simple."

"Real time network monitoring application: It is very stable, which provides quick root cause analysis (RCA) for any network faults.""Most valuable function would have to the internal causal engine and its root cause analyzer which keep us updated on critical errors and incidents in our network environment.""You can utilize the main file from various vendors for integration.""If you install one node on Network Node Manager and want to scale it up, it's pretty easy to create more nodes.""It's quite a mature solution.""It is a scalable product.""We do not have any issues stability-wise."

Cons
"The solution needs to improve it's user interface to make it more modern and stylish. They need to design proper menu positions, features, etc. Right now the layout is complicated.""eSight has many features and options, but sometimes, we feel that it should be more advanced, like Cisco. It would be good if they can enable some automation part in eSight. Most of our customers want automation in their network. They don't want a dependency on everything. That's why the automation part must be improved in Huawei. It will be beneficial for customers. Cisco has different products, and there are multiple products for monitoring, automation, etc. In the software-defined network, Cisco has ACI, and VMware has NSX. Such options must be there in Huawei to move to a software-defined network. Unlike Cisco, in the case of eSight, there is only one product. I am not aware of any other product. It would be good to enhance it with at least some automation options so that we can use it effectively in the campus network or big data center environment. When I implemented this Huawei solution, I faced some limitations in particular areas like wireless scanning. This is another part that they can improve. Wireless reporting option is not as effective as other monitoring solutions. For a particular use case, if a customer is asking for some reports, sometimes they are not 100% satisfactory. The reporting structure must be improved.""It will be better if they can make the simple network topology part more presentable. It would also be better if they had API integration and integration with third-party devices."

"Only to improve the GUI.""Reporting. Even though this is available in separate software (iSPI) there is potential in making the reporting more SLA-aware and more intuitive.""The resources utilized could be a bit higher, and that is one of the challenges that isn't optimized""The way the solution currently works means I'm not able to customize my own reports.""Right now, we have open tickets and they are not closing as expected.""We had some issues with some of the features, some modules are not meeting expectations.""When I open a ticket, usually they respond very late. Some of the people I negotiate with seem undertrained."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Its pricing is better than any other Huawei product. Some products are cheaper in Huawei, and some products are cheaper in Cisco. Cisco has more benefits and options than Huawei if you consider different network environments.""Pricing depends on the competition. If your competitor is like Cisco, then Huawei is much more competitive when it comes to pricing."

"The solution is priced mid-range compared to the competition.""I wasn't involved in the pricing, but I think it's quite expensive."
