Cons
"There needs to be more documentation. If they opened up a bit and shared more information and maybe allowed for YouTube videos about their products and how to work them, it would benefit the users quite a bit.""Huawei Ethernet Switches are scalable but can be improved.""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.""The documentation needs to be better.""I had issues with patching the IOS. But right now I think Huawei has improved very much in the advanced technology and is more stable now. I think patch and bug fixes should be announced on a scheduled basis.""The configuration could be improved and deployment should be easier.""The knowledge base needs to be improved and expanded."

"The Virtual Chassis Fabric is kind of complicated to troubleshoot sometimes. On the MPLS side, they're good — they're fine for the pseudo-wires and stuff—but they need more work on the LAN. It is difficult to troubleshoot their LAN technologies like Virtual Chassis.""The initial setup of switches is not that simple.""In an upcoming release, Juniper Ethernet Switches could improve by having more microservices.""The management platforms for the network need improvement.""They could improve the code, as there are some issues with it.""We need to start seeing some kind of AI to assist with some of what we really want to accomplish from a policy standpoint to achieve better efficiency.""The configuration could be made simpler.""Its distribution channel and the ease of availability should be improved."
