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 technical documentation available is very good. The technical support for the customer is also good - I would give it 8 out of 10.

In terms of the most valuable features, LAN switching is more comfortable and valuable in the network. It is easy to configure and easy to deploy. It is helpful for the installation and it is easy to troubleshoot issues. It's an easy product to understand. It's a good solution.

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.

The technical support is a bit difficult to work with if you don't speak Mandarin.
The knowledge base needs to be improved and expanded.
It could potentially be difficult to get parts depending on where you live.

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.

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 technical support is technically savvy, but the communication via English is not so easy.

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 availability and the speed of the firmware updates are the only things wrong with Huawei. There are some vulnerabilities on the hardware.

I had issues with patching the IOS. But right now I think Huawei has improved very much in the advanced technology and is more stable now. I think patch and bug fixes should be announced on a scheduled basis.

In the next release, I would like to see an increase in the performance of DDoS protection systems against all kinds of attack packets.
