Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Huawei Enterprise Routers.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
We have found we have to restart the routers or reconfigured them a lot of the time, this issue should improve. The quality of the hardware needs to be more durable.
Huawei needs to be a bit more open with their licensing model. What I find is that when you buy equipment, you expect that you have a particular feature. By the time you want to use that feature, you realize that you need to acquire a license for it. That is the one thing that I think they need to improve on. Essentially, they need to open their licensing model such that when a customer buys a device, they have a full view of all of the available licenses for it. It's not at the time of use that the customer will now be informed that they need to purchase an additional license.
We've only been testing the solution for a month and our main concern is stability. We wanted to see if it's as stable as, for example, Cisco. So far, that has not been the case. The router recently failed on us, and we had to end the test. In my country we don't have Huawei technology, we only have Huawei routers for ISP. There is no agent for Huawei in Egypt. In the end, the router was incompatible with the bundles. It's difficult to get the scalability right. There's a gap between their online support and documentation.
Additional security enhancement would make this solution better. In the next release of this solution, I would like to see better bandwidth management, more granular web filtering, and portal authentication.
