Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The product is stable.""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.""I like the real-time location monitor or RTLS feature. It is similar to the monitoring feature in Cisco Prime."

"The best feature is that it is very relatable, stable, and scalable. The logger is a part of the software, but it's not the most important point of it.""The API makes it pretty easy to integrate with any system."

Cons
"Something that could be improved is the lack of integration with Cisco switches. In the next release, I would like to see better reporting.""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."

"The user interface is not what we are used to these days, and should be improved.""They need to improve the dashboard interface."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Its pricing is better than any other Huawei product. Some products are cheaper in Huawei, and some products are cheaper in Cisco. Cisco has more benefits and options than Huawei if you consider different network environments."
  • "Pricing depends on the competition. If your competitor is like Cisco, then Huawei is much more competitive when it comes to pricing."
  • "The price is very expensive."
