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."

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."
