Find out what your peers are saying about Huawei Ethernet Switches vs. Juniper Ethernet Switches and other solutions. Updated: January 2021.
455,536 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The velocity of the process is the most valuable feature."
"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 HTTP features for security are very good. We use all of the regular features."
"Huawei Ethernet switches are easy to use and can be managed using either the GUI or via the command-line."
"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."
"Pricing-wise, Huawei is quite good."
"The technical documentation available is very good. The technical support for the customer is also good - I would give it 8 out of 10."
"When you buy a switch from Huawei, the switches come along with a lot of features that you do not need to pay extra money for."
"What I like most about this solution is that it is secure."
"The most valuable feature is that the CLI is the same on all of the Juniper devices, including routers, switches, and firewalls."
"The ease of management through the command line interface is very good."
"Juniper is the best when it comes to the core layer."
"The scalability is excellent. It's one of the aspects of the solution that is quite good."
"The GUI interface distinguishes it from other vendors and makes it easy to operate."
"It has features that allow us to go back to previous configurations."
"This is a lower cost product with better features than the competition."
"Integration could be improved. The price could also be lower."
"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."
"The GUI could be improved. It could be much more adaptable."
"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."
"In the next release, I would like to see an increase in the performance of DDoS protection systems against all kinds of attack packets."
"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."
"The availability and the speed of the firmware updates are the only things wrong with Huawei. There are some vulnerabilities on the hardware."
"The technical support is a bit difficult to work with if you don't speak Mandarin."
"It was very difficult to get technical support, here in Egypt. There is no local support available."
"The protocols can be tunneled, but on a global basis, not on an interface, and this is a feature that should be added."
"It would be nice to have a more available list of modules that you can get for this solution."
"The stability of this solution should be improved."
"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."
"In the next release of this solution, I would like to see better integration with software-defined networking."
"The initial setup of switches is not that simple."
"The operating system, Junos OS, often has bugs which forces rollbacks or additional upgrades to resolve."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"We have a one-year license. There are no additional costs besides the licensing fee."

"This solution is cheaper than Cisco or HP switches."
"The Juniper switches are less expensive than competing brands."
