Pros
The technical documentation available is very good. The technical support for the customer is also good - I would give it 8 out of 10.Pricing-wise, Huawei is quite good.The most valuable feature is the audit systems. I also like that it can synchronize on the alternate configuration of products together at the same time.Huawei Ethernet switches are easy to use and can be managed using either the GUI or via the command-line.The HTTP features for security are very good. We use all of the regular features.They have the ability, since they have a very big R&D team, to create an upgrade for any feature or patch very easily.The velocity of the process is the most valuable feature.

Cons
The availability and the speed of the firmware updates are the only things wrong with Huawei. There are some vulnerabilities on the hardware.There needs to be more documentation. If they opened up a bit and shared more information and maybe allowed for YouTube videos about their products and how to work them, it would benefit the users quite a bit.In the next release, I would like to see an increase in the performance of DDoS protection systems against all kinds of attack packets.One of the problems with Huawei is that when you receive a product quote from one of the vendors, you cannot get prices from the other ones because they register your request with Huawei.The GUI could be improved. It could be much more adaptable.The interoperability of the devices, in general, on the Huawei switches is not good and is known to be not good. Maybe they can improve this a bit.Integration could be improved. The price could also be lower.

The operating system, Junos OS, often has bugs which forces rollbacks or additional upgrades to resolve.The initial setup of switches is not that simple.Technical support is in need of improvement.In the next release of this solution, I would like to see better integration with software-defined networking.We are undergoing a migration to software-defined networking. Different vendors have to integrate with each other and we are not seeing this type of capability within Juniper. We are getting left behind in this technology trend by staying with this solution. Juniper is also losing a bit of market share because of this.The management tools are limited in their abilities, and suffer from upgrade problems.The updates are constantly breaking.The stability of this solution should be improved.

The Juniper switches are less expensive than competing brands.Juniper Ethernet switches are more cost-effective than Cisco.You don't need to license every switch. We only chose to cover support on core/key equipment and keep a cold spare available when needed.This solution is cheaper than Cisco or HP switches.The maintenance cost is approximately €2,000 ($2,200 USD) per year, including support, for our entire fleet.We purchased the box for a one-time charge, and we are paying a yearly support fee of several hundred Euros.
