The support for the solution has been excellent. If we ever had an issue they would send an engineer to help us with our problem.

We make use of the new data center, specifically the containerized data center which is built and reviewed by Huawei, including all the device's infrastructure.

The solution doesn't seem to be very mature. Our networking team says they are experiencing a lot of issues in the firewalls and some routers.

The solution requires a more interactive dashboard. That would make it easier than playing with configurations the way we have to now.

With the Huawei firewall, none of the features comes at the top. We found out later that customer support is really not good. For this firewall, because of our customers' routine, for example, every six months they'll do a penetration test to find weaknesses. So whenever they came up with VAPT reports, they are looking to Huawei for help. I think that's basically because it's a different culture. Chinese culture and our culture is different. They have always tried to help find some excuses or say some other things that cannot help you solve the problem immediately.

The documentation needs to be improved. When they retire old models, they also retire the documentation. However, if you are still using an older model, you still need access to that documentation. And yet, they go ahead and removed it. It's gone. You are therefore stuck with a device with no documentation and technical support that isn't very helpful as they also remove support assistance as well.

Wi-Fi scanning and Wi-Fi analysis would be useful features to include in the future.

The solution is scalable but it is difficult because you need to purchase new systems, it is not just one click.
