"I have found the solution to be scalable."
"We use this solution to troubleshoot our wireless systems, specifically regarding signal strength."
"Enables oversight in order to tweak and tune."
"The installation is easy."
"The hardware Cisco provides is excellent. It's a well-made product."
"Cisco Prime allows us to do a lot of functions with the users and it is flexible."
"Cisco Prime is helpful as it provides us with real-time monitoring. This allows us to be proactive in our environment."
"I like that it supports all our Huawei devices. Unlike other network monitoring tools that monitor Huawei devices, it provides more details when it comes to monitoring or management. We can get complete details about the devices, and management is also simple."
"eSight allows me to monitor and solve any problem in the backbone and any switch in real-time."
"The product is stable."
"I like the real-time location monitor or RTLS feature. It is similar to the monitoring feature in Cisco Prime."
"It should be able to monitor Palo Alto, Juniper, and Check Point products - not just Cisco solutions."
"The overall management capabilities of Prime need to be improved."
"The solution is not easy to configure."
"The user interface of Cisco Prime could be more user-friendly and increase its performance."
"The solution can be slow at times."
"This solution could be improved if it could monitor configuration changes."
"Cisco Prime could improve the graphical user interface."
"eSight has many features and options, but sometimes, we feel that it should be more advanced, like Cisco. It would be good if they can enable some automation part in eSight. Most of our customers want automation in their network. They don't want a dependency on everything. That's why the automation part must be improved in Huawei. It will be beneficial for customers. Cisco has different products, and there are multiple products for monitoring, automation, etc. In the software-defined network, Cisco has ACI, and VMware has NSX. Such options must be there in Huawei to move to a software-defined network. Unlike Cisco, in the case of eSight, there is only one product. I am not aware of any other product. It would be good to enhance it with at least some automation options so that we can use it effectively in the campus network or big data center environment. When I implemented this Huawei solution, I faced some limitations in particular areas like wireless scanning. This is another part that they can improve. Wireless reporting option is not as effective as other monitoring solutions. For a particular use case, if a customer is asking for some reports, sometimes they are not 100% satisfactory. The reporting structure must be improved."
"It will be better if they can make the simple network topology part more presentable. It would also be better if they had API integration and integration with third-party devices."
"The price could be less costly."
"Something that could be improved is the lack of integration with Cisco switches. In the next release, I would like to see better reporting."
Cisco Prime products deliver next-generation management by supporting an intuitive workflow-oriented user experience and integrated lifecycle operations across Cisco architectures, technologies, and networks.
