Huawei Ethernet Switches

Huawei switches are ideal for cases where performance is not essential, for low traffic solutions and for equipment management. It is not recommended for situations of high performance and stress, immediate availability and high scalability. It is also not advisable to use them in solutions that involve hardware from other brands, the integration of Huawei with Cisco, for example, is very traumatic and the results were not optimal in my case.

Huawei Ethernet Switches

  • The cost of the hardware is acceptable but the licenses of use are expensive and in the end its price equals or exceeds the switch of other brands.
  • There are functionalities that should be available in the standard version and when they are trying to enable, Huawei support indicates that they have an additional cost which causes inconvenience and difficulties at the time of implementation
  • the performance of the equipment is inferior to those of other brands although it is decent.

Huawei Ethernet Switches

The performance of Huawei is lower than Cisco, but initially the costs inclined the decision towards Huawei, but unfortunately, it was not, the licenses and the manager fired the investment to make it very similar to cisco. Therefore it is preferable to go to the Cisco switches for reliability and robustness.
