Deployment and maintenance of the product can be carried out by one person, but they would need to have in-depth knowledge of the solution. The solution is unique in terms of commands, and how to configure the devices. So I would recommend that anyone looking at this solution makes sure they really understand the product for it to be effective. I would rate this solution as six out of ten.

I'm a customer and end-user. Normally Cisco is used on the Backhaul network. I prefer Cisco and Juniper on Backhaul. In the access network, we can use Huawei and I prefer that. I'd rate the solution six out of ten. For an SME organization, Huawei is obviously affordable. Normally, SMEs are using it. However, on large networks like within the banking sector, they prefer to use Cisco rather than Huawei. They normally use an access site, and Backhaul is on Cisco.

My recommendation is that you use Huawei Routers; they are good, and they don't have any problems. For example, in my situation, it is better to get support from Huawei directly because, where many companies have left Russia. I would rate Huawei Enterprise Routers a nine out of ten. I have an issue with Huawei; when we can't solve a project problem, support will say, "Oh, this will be from next year, we don't want to create support, for example, Huawei Router." We can also provide you with three years of use. This is one of the minor issues that we may encounter if we use Huawei devices.

I like to use this product and most of our deployments are now products from Huawei. We don't have any problems with these routers. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

We're simply a customer. While we've tried the solution for a month, we're finding the stability isn't where we need it to be. Cisco is much more stable. I would recommend the solution to others as it does offer good pricing. However, you need to have good support in your area. If you have a good technical person who can help you set up your network accurately and have access to good support, it might work out fine. You also have to be careful not to overwhelm the router with users due to scalability issues. We have a school in the Gulf doing amazing however the school only needs to handle around 300 users we never hit full capacity in the first year of using it. We'll see if the hardware acts up after another year and possibly more users. On a scale from one to ten, I'd rate it at a six. My experience is slightly biased, as we don't have support in my country, so when we run into issues we tend to be on our own. However, if stability, support, and market availability come together, it has the potential to be a great product.

There is no licence for this solution, but the solution could be cheaper.

We use these routers to connect our customers. We use them for client access, and we use them in the network core. We also use them on the edge, for security. We have some of their security products sitting at the edge of our network, and we use Huawei laptops to connect our customers from their premises. Sometimes, they use their own on-premises equipment. We have the big NE40-X8 and NE5000E routers everywhere in our infrastructure. In addition to the network core, this includes the client edge, client access edge, and we had them at the internet edge. We also use their Huawei equipment for our long distance DWDM fiber, so we have the Huawei devices to cover different aspects.
