"This solution has issues with bugs and instability.""As such, there are no problems. It has been good. There were some issues with the network design, but that is not specifically related to the product. We had to make some improvements in the network design. The product as such is fine, and there are no big issues. We are using the latest version having most of the features available in the industry, so the specs are very high. If something new comes up new in the industry, it needs to be incorporated into the product.""The scalability could be better.""The scalability could be a bit better.""While I am fine with the current licensing price, I would appreciate it to be more cost-effective.""The manageability could be improved.""The security of the solution could be better in the future.""They should actually first test the equipment thoroughly and then launch it. Sometimes, things come out too soon, before they are ready."

"The user experience should be improved. It's not user-friendly.""The inter-functionality with other vendors was a negative for us.""There seems to be different versions of standards used in the wireless access points. In the future, it would be helpful if the solution could come up with some kind of universal standard for all devices and all access points."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We don't have any control on the pricing. This comes from Huawei in India. Pricing-wise, Huawei is very aggressive and competitive if you compare them to competitors, like Cisco, Aruba, and Ruckus. The Indian Huawei team tells us, "Just pick up the order and design the infrastructure. If there are any pricing challenge, we'll work on that and we will try to match things 100 percent.""
  • "Huawei comes at a cheaper price than competitors like Cisco and Aruba."
  • "It is not monthly. It is a kind of perpetual licensing. We pay once depending on the kind of services we need to deliver. There are no licensing fees."
  • "Its price is very good. This wireless system totally costs about 30,000 euros, and some of the other solutions cost about 45,000 euros. It is a difference of 15,000 euros, which is quite a lot of money."
  • "The price is good for the solution and there is a license required."
  • "It is very cost-effective."
  • "Extras come with a surcharge."
