What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Huawei Ethernet switches have a price advantage over other solutions. You can buy about four Huawei switches for the price of one Cisco switch. The exact pricing varies… more»

What is most valuable?

The solution is very inexpensive. The documentation is very good. Technical support is also very good. They have the ability, since they have a very big R&D team, to create an upgrade for any feature or patch very easily.

What needs improvement?

Troubleshooting documentation should be improved. 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. In terms of being able to patch quickly, if you have both a quality device, a quality switch that has a specific capability, Huawei won't necessarily have the same capability until a patch is created… more»

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. When compared to Cisco switches, the Huawei switches are a bit lower in quality. They have similar properties that the Cisco switches have. Often Huawei brings in the features to match the competition later, and, in general, the overall quality a bit lower. Sometimes, because of this, you might have some unexpected results. The documentation is generally… more»

What is most valuable?

The HTTP features for security are very good. We use all of the regular features.

What needs improvement?

The software could be more stable. There are a lot of bugs reported for the IS portion. The GUI could be improved. It could be much more adaptable.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We use a variety of switches. Depending on the requirements, we use Huawei, Cisco, HP, or Aruba.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd rate the solution four out of ten. The OS, features, and usage aren't great. There's a lack of resources and support. There's also a lack of implementers and very few partners.
