We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
Please share what you can so you can help your peers.
The pricing is cheaper than other vendors, which is a plus.
Huawei comes with a lot of features out of the box that you have to pay extra for with other products. They do charge extra in the licensing for certain other features, however, so some of those capabilities are an additional charge.
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 based on how many units you purchase. For example, if you buy one then it is expensive, but if you buy ten or more then there is a discount. I would expect the same would apply to larger purchases, such as a bulk discount for buying 100 or more units.
We have a one-year license. There are no additional costs besides the licensing fee.
