We performed a comparison between Cisco Ethernet Switches and Huawei Ethernet Switches based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Ethernet Switches solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"Cisco Ethernet Switches have good performance."
"Multicast is a great feature of this product."
"The most valuable feature is that we create a network as a villain."
"The most valuable feature is the simplicity of the central management system(CMS)."
"Remote access is a valuable feature."
"It's all-encompassing and can help you in all these different areas. If people realize that they want something that's going to work, that's pretty foolproof, then Cisco's always worth the investment."
"The solution's valuable features are the speed of network transfer, it can transfer four to six gigabits per second."
"Technical support has always been helpful."
"It is pretty straightforward to set up."
"It is easy to understand all the features of Huawei Switches."
"The most valuable feature of Huawei Ethernet Switches is the power ethernet which allows you to generate hubs to 10 Gbps data on the ethernet cable."
"They last quite a while."
"Huawei switches come in small, medium, and large capacities and can be used for monitoring and switching."
"Huawei Ethernet Switches are very stable."
"The affordability of this solution has been most useful."
"The tool’s pricing is reasonable. It has a high throughput capacity."
"The quality of Cisco Ethernet Switches could be better."
"An area for improvement in Cisco Ethernet Switches is its command-line interface. It works differently than expected if you want to do some implementation. However, it works if it's a simple integration."
"Cisco Ethernet Switches could improve if they removed the command line interface and replaced it with a better GUI. It is too difficult at the moment, we always need to figure out the commands."
"Cisco could definitely work on delivering improved pricing to its customers."
"The installation is difficult and requires further training documentations."
"The management of the solution could improve."
"The user interface could be improved."
"In terms of features, they tick all the boxes as of now. That could be because we tailor the solution around the product. I have not seen anything that pulls me back or is not working well for me. However, there could be better integration with the network monitoring systems. It doesn't mean it is currently not there, but there could be better discoverability with some of the network monitoring systems to be able to have more visibility. When you're setting up a control room, you can have more visibility into what is going on in the network. It has been doing that, but it can do that more."
"The only thing that could be better is the security module."
"The company needs to provide more on hand training on the product."
"I would like to see some improvements in the access layer switch that is available in Aruba."
"We would like to have a greater level of automation using this solution. The customer support could also be faster."
"We would like to see additional backup solutions, since we have several degrees of backup."
"Connectivity is an area that needs improvement in the solution. Interconnectivity with third-party versions or Cisco Meraki should be made available to users in future releases of the solution."
"I didn't like the Huawei Switches because of the different versions resetting the configuration issue. Huawei doesn't support Layer 3 modes while TOE and ARP have some issues."
"Certain regulatory issues in a lot of countries cause limitations ."
