"Overall we have found the solution to be satisfactory."
"It's simple to use and offers good connectivity."
"The initial setup is easy."
"The scalability is good."
"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."
"The product is very reasonably priced."
"This product uses a non-proprietary command line, which makes it compatible across many different systems."
"I have been able to connect the solution to many platforms such as Windows, Apple, and Android."
"The support is very good from Juniper and from the local distributors."
"It gives you that level of visibility to understand what's going on between layer four and layer seven."
"It would be better if local storage management was more flexible, so that unused data could be easily removed."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"The configuration is complex and should be simplified."
"There is not much of a technical team for Huawei available in Pakistan as compared to Cisco with respect to very complex networks."
"The only problem I see is configuration loss."
"There isn't really any scalability potential."
"The training could be better. When it comes to the demo dashboard capability, I feel like it could be much easier for our customers to use. Our last customer complained about this."
"The solution installs similarly to competitors. It is not more difficult or easier. However, it could be easier and take less time for the installation."
