Huawei Ethernet Switches Valuable Features

At the time, for our sized organization, they were cost-effective, fit for purpose, and risk assessed to go in accordingly because they were cheap, and they have lasted, but now it doesn't give us the ability to do what we need because we've grown exponentially in the last eight or nine years. 

The one thing is those products were cost effective, and for what they did, their costing is a lot cheaper than any Juniper or any other product out there. But if you need scalability, normal monitoring tools, backup and switches, they're not going to be the product for a team.

The basic features are great. We can connect to the internet through SIM cards, through the phone network, to 4G and 5G networks.

It provides Wi-Fi on the premise and basic switching and routing capabilities on facilities.

They're straightforward to set up. Even a non-technical user can just take a Huawei Switch with a few lines of documentation, and they're able to put them online. They have the ability to use them even a totally new or non-technical user. It's a bit easier to use.

The feature that is the most valuable depends on who the customer is. The power of the Ethernet is important for us and for our clients. The multi-gig options are important for us all. All the routing protocols that they have are important for us. The level of importance of each of these features depends on the specific business requirements for a specific company.

The functionality is great. The functionality is basically the same as Cisco. However, with Cisco, some protocols are standard proprietary on the Cisco side. Also, with Huawei, some protocols are proprietary. 

The pricing is much lower than, for example, Cisco.

It works quite well in general.
