"I like that Cisco Enterprise Routers is a stable solution. Their technical support is also really good."
"The feature that I have found most valuable is its ability to implement layer three protocols and layer two protocols like OSPS in BSS and BSC environments, with the Nexus Cisco 7000."
"It is a good router that is available with advanced technology."
"Cisco Enterprise Routers are easy to use and the performance is good."
"They are the most stable, have the highest availability, and are the most reliable on the market."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of configuration."
"Cisco Enterprise Routers are easy to use and configure through the CLI."
"They have a good lifespan and they are easily managed."
"The configuration syntax makes it easy for us to configure the device and perform troubleshooting when needed."
"The scalability is good."
"The solution offers good customer support and good performance."
"The initial setup is easy."
"There is a lot of information available about routers and how to configure Huawei Routers right now."
"Overall we have found the solution to be satisfactory."
"The most valuable feature of Huawei Enterprise Routers is if have two networks at different geographical locations with a great deal of distance they work together as if they are on the same cloud network."
"When we started, the connection was amazing for the 100G between the switches and the co-switch. What the students typically use for school is a maximum is 40 so they now have faster technology."
"The solution could improve by having multiple features inclusive of the router, such as a free firewall and VPN. Additionally, it should be a generic box that can act as a router, firewall, and switch."
"Longer duration of support."
"Cisco could improve by reducing the delays in receiving physical devices."
"There have been multiple issues when updating iOS to Cisco routers."
"The security could improve for Cisco Enterprise Routers. I understand there's a security appliance that is separate, but in terms of the router, there can be improvements made to prevent unwanted users from accessing the router or trying to manipulate the traffic that is passing through it."
"I would like to see better reporting and also integration with other products."
"The installation can be difficult, Cisco equipment is professional-grade and it requires someone with the skills and knowledge to do it."
"If Cisco can give you one license and allow you to use all the features, that would be the best thing. We are using it only as a voice gateway, and there are other options available, but we need to procure licenses to use those options. We can use it as a security device, or we can use it for connecting the LAN side, but for that, we need all those licenses. They can provide one license and allow you to use all the features. This is my recommendation for Cisco."
"The configuration is complex and should be simplified."
"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."
"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."
"If Huawei can use its own OEM processor, it could be a good step up for future use in the network devices."
"The only problem I see is configuration loss."
"In my country we don't have Huawei technology, we only have Huawei routers for ISP. There is no agent for Huawei in Egypt."
"There is not much of a technical team for Huawei available in Pakistan as compared to Cisco with respect to very complex networks."
"Huawei Enterprise Routers can improve by enhancing their security. The software architecture and the operating system that runs on their router and the security capability are not as strong when compared to Cisco."
