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.

Cons
"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."
