If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Huawei eSight, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I would advise new users to follow the installation manual provided on the Huawei website. All the details and steps are given there, including what steps to take if you encounter an error. On a scale from one to ten, I would give Huawei eSight an eight.
I would recommend this solution depending upon the budget and requirements of a customer. If a customer is asking for automation, I have some Cisco products for automation. If a customer is asking for some low priced and cheap device, I have solutions in Huawei. It also depends on the network environment and the efficiency to handle the network in a particular technology. If a customer is very happy with Huawei and he is more knowledgeable about Huawei devices, he would prefer Huawei. Those having the Cisco devices would only prefer Cisco. Similarly, an HP customer would prefer HP. As a technical person, I have all the options. I am not bound to one option. I would rate Huawei eSight a six out of ten.
We use the on-premises deployment model. We're a Huawei partner. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
