Gartner Peer Insights is a free peer review and ratings platform designed for enterprise software and services decision makers. Reviews go through a strict validation and moderation process in an effort to ensure they are authentic. The “Voice of the Customer” is a document that synthesizes Gartner Peer Insights’ reviews into insights for IT decision makers. This aggregated peer perspective, along with the individual detailed reviews, is complementary to Gartner expert research and can play a key role in your buying process, as it focuses on direct peer experiences of implementing and operating a solution.

Huawei had received many positive reviews from customers around the world and in various industries, such as finance, carrier, manufacturing, energy, media, healthcare, and education. These reviews cover everything from system architecture, product functionality, and deployment to O&M, service, and support.
