"The solution is very user-friendly and easy to use.""The most valuable features of Huawei Wireless are WiFi coverage and ease of use.""The solution offers very good value for money.""The solution is easy to set up.""All of the features are valuable in Huawei Wireless.""We've found the solution to be quite stable.""At the moment, I only have experience with the on-premise deployment of Huawei Wireless, but the cloud solution looks good on paper. It looks perfect. I can say that Huawei's cybersecurity is very good, stable, and works for long periods. My company has four devices running uptime for more than four years without stopping. I also like that the support for Huawei Wireless is swift, and support does precisely what you require, at least from the point of view of the technical engineer who communicated with Huawei support, as I'm more of a technical sales guy. Good technical support is vital to my company, partners, and customers. My company had this ongoing project with an ISP provider in Bulgaria that bought some routers. Still, the existing equipment was a completely different brand, so this provider wanted to migrate to Huawei Wireless and wanted help while migrating the existing infrastructure to Huawei, so the technical engineer assigned to raise the ticket with Huawei for checking and setting parameters correctly provided feedback about Huawei technical support being good quality-wise and TAT-wise. The technical engineer was also Cisco-certified and Juniper-certified and was not experienced with Huawei equipment. Still, he did mention that the Huawei Wireless router interface was straightforward, and even a person who's new to it would find it easy to configure. Huawei Wireless is user-friendly, which is another pro of the solution. It's easy to manage, and even the program language setting can be done with fewer commands than Juniper and Cisco equipment. Some of the features in Juniper need an external program, and the same features can be found in Huawei Wireless built-in, which I find remarkable.""The most valuable thing about Huawei Wireless is that it is one of the cheapest WiFi 6 systems. Its price is very nice. The other WiFi systems cost about 15% more."

"Ubiquiti provides good connectivity for the end-user, so I think it's stable.""I have found Ubiquiti WLAN scalable. We have approximately 200 users using the solution in my organization and do not plan to increase usage.""Ubiquiti WLAN's most valuable features are that it works well in a hybrid environment and isn't heavy on resources.""All of the interfacing is very good.""Ubiquiti WLAN's best feature is the free controller system software.""Ubiquiti WLAN has been stable and is easy to install.""It is similar to the switches, where it is one of those things where it just works. They are very reliable.""The solution is not complex to deploy."

More Ubiquiti WLAN Pros →

"If you want to do more specific stuff, it's a bit limited.""I need a bit more time with it before criticizing the features.""Juniper Wireless AP can improve by continually improving its reporting and integration with other systems."

More Juniper Wireless Access Points (AP Series) Cons →

"I'd like to see some after-sales support. It's a little bit below the expectations we had.""Cloud integration needs to be improved.""While I am fine with the current licensing price, I would appreciate it to be more cost-effective.""The demo program is an area for improvement in Huawei Wireless as it's hard to use. As a partner, you can use the solution for free, for thirty days, for example. On paper, everything looks fine, but you have to get permission and explain why you want to download the software, even if it's just for demo purposes. I don't get why I have to do this as a partner and still give an explanation that this would be for a demo setup. Downloading the solution isn't a click-and-install process that should go smoothly and efficiently. You have to get a lot of approvals and explain a lot, and in the end, you find out that you received the approval for one piece of software. It looks like you need additional software to use the software. My company asked for approval and received the approval three days later, but you need to install another software to use some of the features. In the past, most features were separate. Because Huawei wants a single pane of glass where all features should work with the Huawei equipment, Huawei decided to combine everything into the iMaster NCE Campus, which incorporates every other cloud solution. However, you still have to ask for approval for every piece of software, and without clear information on the features, the type of software, and the software files required, it's not so good from my point of view.""The security of the solution could be better in the future.""Huawei Wireless is not scalable. We have had a problem with the solution because it cannot integrate with other servers as the other competitors can.""The scalability could be better.""Huawei Wireless has a small technical problem. When you use a power injector, it needs to be specially configured for the switch to which it is connected. It tries to take power not from the power injector but from the switch. The funny thing when you look at it is that you have three switches or maybe four or five that are theoretically capable. However, the port on these switches is disabled. When you connect the access point to a power injector, the access point checks for features from the switch, but on this port, the switch doesn't do power. So, the access point changes these features to energy save mode and cuts off some features, especially WiFi 6. It took me two weeks to find out what's going on and how to mitigate this sort of problem. It is very easy to fix. You need to disable LLDP on the port on which you connect the access point to the power injector. Power injectors aren't quite commonly used, but I have 54 access points, and I have used about 27 power injectors. So, about half of the access points were working at reduced speed, not full speed, for two weeks."

"Ubiquiti lacks troubleshooting tools. For example, there aren't tools that your clients can use to gather input on the AP itself. There's no visibility in the application layer or reporting. It doesn't have a lot of management features.""When I started to upgrade, the controller for Unbuntu was really struggling to start up, however, that has since been solved.""The statistics you can get on it are a bit limited from what I have seen so far.""The coverage could be increased.""The solution could improve by having a cloud version. A cloud version is the easiest to configure anywhere in the world.""There seems to be a drop in service. It's definitely a reliability or stability issue we face.""When they release new products, you should know if there backward compatibility, or do you have to replace the entire forklift, It is useful to understand their strategy and where they are headed.""Largely we're happy with the product, however, the firmware deployments could maybe be managed a little bit differently."
