"The scalability is very good.""It's stable and performing well.""These switches are very stable, to date I have not experienced any issues.""The simplicity of the commands is most valuable. The commands are the same for several devices.""Stable and scalable.""The main features of the solution I have found to be the interface and unique features other solutions do not have. Additionally, they have a lifetime warranty on the hardware.""You can scale the product as needed.""These are the basic access layer switches used for connectivity among users, and they are cost-effective."

"The most valuable features are that it is easy to use, easy to configure, it's priced well, and the operating system is easy to understand.""This product is competitive technically with the best products in the class.""The Huawei switches are stable, easy to set up, and cheap.""Huawei Ethernet Switches are both scalable and stable.""I use it on a daily basis and I find it to be quite stable.""Huawei Ethernet Switches are very stable.""So far, so good when it comes to stability.""What we like the most is that the price is reasonable and it's easy to manage."

More Huawei Ethernet Switches Pros →

"The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable.""The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable.""Jupiter Switches' configuration is a little difficult to understand.""The management platforms for the network need improvement.""I have found the scalability could be improved in the version I was using.""Wireless and monitoring definitely could be improved.""The stability could be better. We find, for example, Cisco, to be more stable.""Stability could be better, especially during a reboot. We have had some issues recently with the software getting corrupt on reboot, which causes a lot of downtime."

More Juniper Ethernet Switches Cons →

"There is a limitation of capability.""Authentication and other security features are not easily satisfied using the lower-end switches.""We haven't had any issues with this switch in the past 10 years. That's the reason we're still keeping them alive.""VLAN can be improved, but I have to check that with the company expert. I have different switch models, but they don't have all the same interface. I don't know whether lower-level switches don't have the same interface as the better quality ones. I might have two different model types.""It would be ideal if the product offered more security.""They should continue to work on new features.""The only improvement I can think of is that it could be better with less updates.""The scalability is limited."

More HPE Ethernet Switches Cons →

"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.""The documentation needs to be better.""It is not easy to use if you need to monitor, patch or update. It needs to be configured by a network specialist because it doesn't have an overall central monitoring tool or anything like that. I'd say no ease of use.""The company needs to provide more on hand training on the product.""I would like to see more training opportunities available.""We would like to see additional backup solutions, since we have several degrees of backup.""The configuration is very difficult even for someone who is already familiar with the configuration process.""Devices should have the ability to configure more easily."
