The price of Huawei Wireless is reasonable. The licenses are active, and everything is working fine as per the license agreement.

Huawei Wireless is a cheaper solution when you compare it to the cost of other similar solutions. It has one of the most competitive prices out there.

While I am fine with the current licensing price, I would glad if it were cheaper. Extras come with a surcharge, although, as I have not made use of these, I cannot comment on their prices.

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.

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.

You can purchase an additional switch with an additional switch. That is a good milestone. 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."

In comparison to Cisco, the pricing isn't bad.

Huawei wireless is a strong and solid product that has a lot of features - and for all that it offers, it happens to be very cost effective. As a wireless solution, it is simple and its user interface is user-friendly. Overall, I have found that Huawei has high performance, provides good coverage, and is reliable. In my experience, the scalability has been good as well, and whenever we have had issues, customer service or technical support has been extremely helpful. I will mention, though, that the initial installation took about six hours because we had to configure the controller, and although it was not difficult, it did involve a technical team of three engineers to set it up. There are some things that I feel could be improved. The manageability could be better, and I have also had some issues with bugs and instability. I would also hope that in the near future sometime, they would add network access control features. In comparison to Huawei wireless, D-Link is competitive in price. In my research, I have found that it is easy to manage and also easy to install. Another advantage of D-Link is that it includes wireless, switching, and static wiring, which is important if your organization needs to implement with other OEMs, making it a complete solution. I felt that it had limited advanced features for distributing bandwidth. While I think D-Link is a good product and is affordable, I think it needs to get up to speed with other vendors and there is a lot of room for improvement. It is also important to know that the solution does not have hotspots. Conclusion: I would choose Huawei’s wireless solution over D-Link because I think the solution offers good value for the price, and I also like the speed and mobility it offers, which I find to be quite impressive.

The software developers in the organization should connect to wireless access points for internet by their active directory credentials. Is that possible with Cisco WLAN?
