Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"That would be more of engineering at this point. I'm from more of the business side. It's pretty much doing the standard installations with portal integrations and integrations with the Mac.""The solution's roaming feature is very nice. When you move to another place it automatically changes the access point. It's one of the most valuable features.""The solution is easily managed compared to other wireless solutions.""You can add a lot of features, such as cloud, integration with IoT, etc. They have a lot of options available but the top feature is the performance.""This solution is very simple and the interface is user-friendly.""It is based on 802.11ax, which is a new technology. There are several valuable things, such as its speed and mobility. There are options for self-organizing networking so that it can perform operations and maintain itself. Its three interfaces are very good and user friendly.""The most valuable thing about Huawei Wireless is that it is one of the cheapest WiFi 6 systems. Its price is very nice. The other WiFi systems cost about 15% more.""The solution offers very good value for money."

"The most valuable feature is the level of security on the Wi-Fi network.""Great management interface.""The most beneficial thing about Ubiquiti is that it is simple to deploy.""The solution is scalable.""The pricing is very competitive and the feature sets are very good. It compares well against more expensive options.""All of the interfacing is very good.""Ubiquiti WLAN has been stable and is easy to install.""I have found Ubiquiti WLAN scalable. We have approximately 200 users using the solution in my organization and do not plan to increase usage."

Cons
"Improving the visibility, control offered, and cloud management would all be very helpful. Also how you can monetize the information you get from Wi-Fi controllers should be improved.""The technical support needs to be improved. They also need to produce some more technical guides.""The solution should offer more integration with third-party servers and devices.""There was one time I had a problem with their centralized licensing. I called the Indian call center, but the response was not that good. One guy attended this call and he told me, "Definitely, I am forwarding your call to the next level. I'll let you know." After that, it took between 10 to 15 hours before I got a call back. By then, we had already resolved the issue. Therefore, they could improve the local support; there should be at very good Tier 1 and 2 support in India. They should be both proactive and reactive.""This solution has issues with bugs and instability.""As such, there are no problems. It has been good. There were some issues with the network design, but that is not specifically related to the product. We had to make some improvements in the network design. The product as such is fine, and there are no big issues. We are using the latest version having most of the features available in the industry, so the specs are very high. If something new comes up new in the industry, it needs to be incorporated into the product.""Huawei Wireless has a small technical problem. When you use a power injector, it needs to be specially configured for the switch to which it is connected. It tries to take power not from the power injector but from the switch. The funny thing when you look at it is that you have three switches or maybe four or five that are theoretically capable. However, the port on these switches is disabled. When you connect the access point to a power injector, the access point checks for features from the switch, but on this port, the switch doesn't do power. So, the access point changes these features to energy save mode and cuts off some features, especially WiFi 6. It took me two weeks to find out what's going on and how to mitigate this sort of problem. It is very easy to fix. You need to disable LLDP on the port on which you connect the access point to the power injector. Power injectors aren't quite commonly used, but I have 54 access points, and I have used about 27 power injectors. So, about half of the access points were working at reduced speed, not full speed, for two weeks.""They should actually first test the equipment thoroughly and then launch it. Sometimes, things come out too soon, before they are ready."

More Huawei Wireless Cons »

"The strength of the signal from the access points could be improved.""Switching devices requires reconfiguration from scratch.""The downside is the interface changes, where they are constantly doing firmware updates.""I have found they need to work on the stability of the solution.""The support needs improvement. The official support is kind of complex. It's not that straightforward compared to Cisco and Aruba.""Largely we're happy with the product, however, the firmware deployments could maybe be managed a little bit differently.""The coverage could be increased.""The solution is stable but could improve."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We don't have any control on the pricing. This comes from Huawei in India. Pricing-wise, Huawei is very aggressive and competitive if you compare them to competitors, like Cisco, Aruba, and Ruckus. The Indian Huawei team tells us, "Just pick up the order and design the infrastructure. If there are any pricing challenge, we'll work on that and we will try to match things 100 percent."""Huawei comes at a cheaper price than competitors like Cisco and Aruba.""It is not monthly. It is a kind of perpetual licensing. We pay once depending on the kind of services we need to deliver. There are no licensing fees.""Its price is very good. This wireless system totally costs about 30,000 euros, and some of the other solutions cost about 45,000 euros. It is a difference of 15,000 euros, which is quite a lot of money.""The price is good for the solution and there is a license required.""It is very cost-effective."
