"The integration with ClearPass is the most valuable feature."
"The central management of multiple devices is the solution's most valuable aspect."
"The access it grants to wifi is the solution's most valuable feature."
"The products offer a lot of flexibility. Almost everything can be configured. It works very well for providing remote services."
"The quick setup and automatic code embedded in one access point is really useful."
"The most valuable thing about Huawei Wireless is that it is one of the cheapest WiFi 6 systems. Its price is very nice. The other WiFi systems cost about 15% more."
"Installation is easy."
"The solution is easy to set up."
"The solution offers very good value for money."
"The solution has high performance and we are using Wi-Fi 6 that we have found to be the best coverage."
"You can add a lot of features, such as cloud, integration with IoT, etc. They have a lot of options available but the top feature is the performance."
"The solution is very user-friendly and easy to use."
"It is based on 802.11ax, which is a new technology. There are several valuable things, such as its speed and mobility. There are options for self-organizing networking so that it can perform operations and maintain itself. Its three interfaces are very good and user friendly."
"There was only ever one case in which an access point failed, but it was reintegrated. The issue was more of a matter of oversight. One part of the network had covered ten access points."
"The reach of the solution could be improved. It could be a bit stronger."
"The management component is difficult to understand and not very user-friendly which increases deployment time."
"The meshing could use improvement but aside from that nothing else really needs improvement."
"Doesn't support enough access points in one cluster."
"Huawei Wireless has a small technical problem. When you use a power injector, it needs to be specially configured for the switch to which it is connected. It tries to take power not from the power injector but from the switch. The funny thing when you look at it is that you have three switches or maybe four or five that are theoretically capable. However, the port on these switches is disabled. When you connect the access point to a power injector, the access point checks for features from the switch, but on this port, the switch doesn't do power. So, the access point changes these features to energy save mode and cuts off some features, especially WiFi 6. It took me two weeks to find out what's going on and how to mitigate this sort of problem. It is very easy to fix. You need to disable LLDP on the port on which you connect the access point to the power injector. Power injectors aren't quite commonly used, but I have 54 access points, and I have used about 27 power injectors. So, about half of the access points were working at reduced speed, not full speed, for two weeks."
"The security of the solution could be better in the future."
"There was one time I had a problem with their centralized licensing. I called the Indian call center, but the response was not that good. One guy attended this call and he told me, "Definitely, I am forwarding your call to the next level. I'll let you know." After that, it took between 10 to 15 hours before I got a call back. By then, we had already resolved the issue. Therefore, they could improve the local support; there should be at very good Tier 1 and 2 support in India. They should be both proactive and reactive."
"The scalability could be a bit better."
"The scalability could be better."
"They should actually first test the equipment thoroughly and then launch it. Sometimes, things come out too soon, before they are ready."
"This solution has issues with bugs and instability."
"As such, there are no problems. It has been good. There were some issues with the network design, but that is not specifically related to the product. We had to make some improvements in the network design. The product as such is fine, and there are no big issues. We are using the latest version having most of the features available in the industry, so the specs are very high. If something new comes up new in the industry, it needs to be incorporated into the product."
