Cons
"It would be better if local storage management was more flexible, so that unused data could be easily removed.""If Huawei can use its own OEM processor, it could be a good step up for future use in the network devices.""Lacks sufficient market availability.""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.""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.""There is not much of a technical team for Huawei available in Pakistan as compared to Cisco with respect to very complex networks.""The configuration is complex and should be simplified."

More Huawei Enterprise Routers Cons →

"It happens that you may find your network is down, if you reboot the switch, they come up. However, sometimes, they reset themselves. That's a big issue.""The bulk efficiencies and the control of traffic could be a bit better.""The initial setup is complex.""Technical support could be better.""The solution does not yet offer a SaaS version.""Stuff that I'd like to be improved is really just training and documentation because I think the feature set is full. Another improvement I'd suggest is that their new, bigger releases should be a bit more stable.""The port isolation and VLAN need to be improved.""The user interface could improve and they should allow a license for IBS."
