Huawei (www.Huawei.com) is excited to announce that it was named a 2021 Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure (https://gtnr.it/3fzF4xO). As the only non-North American vendor named, Huawei received a high rating of 4.8/5 stars based on 191 customer reviews (as of March 2021)  on the Gartner Peer Insights platform.
Huawei is proud to garner many customer reviews and high ratings due to its highly competitive campus network offerings and excellent performance worldwide. Huawei was named a Customers' Choice in four of the five customer segments (excluding North America) based on the demographics of reviewers – Midsize Enterprise (50M – 1B USD), Services, Asia/Pacific, and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
As of March 31, 2021, customers across a wide variety of sectors (such as finance, government, carrier, and manufacturing) have reviewed Huawei's CloudCampus Solution and full series of products [e.g., CloudEngine S series switches, AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 APs, iMaster NCE-CampusInsight (https://gtnr.it/3g0Y1Z8), and iMaster NCE-Campus (https://gtnr.it/2SK0CPv)] on Gartner Peer Insights. They appraised the product functionality, deployment, O&M, and service support of Huawei's campus network offerings. We believe their impressive feedback showed global recognition of Huawei from the industry influence, deployment scales, and mature commercial use perspectives.

“It is our sole aim to provide best-in-class solutions and products that meet customer requirements and receive customer recognition.

We are also highly grateful for the feedback we receive through Gartner Peer Insights.”
The following excerpts from customers contributed to Huawei's distinction:
“Huawei iMaster NCE is deployed in our cloud data center and provides automatic management of the entire network. O&M personnel do not need to perform command-line configuration, which facilitates management. In addition, IoT terminals can be intelligently identified to quickly authenticate devices and users, ensuring network security.” – IT Engineer in the manufacturing industry (Link, as of March 23, 2021 (https://gtnr.it/3wOhMtI)] “My organization and Huawei are long-term strategic partners. In this bid, Huawei stands out from the vendors and wins the network construction project of our headquarters building. Huawei's Wi-Fi 6 APs maintain high performance, such as fast speed, low latency, large bandwidth, and stable roaming, both in PoC tests and in actual wireless networks. Huawei's delivery team is very professional and quickly completes the wireless network planning of the entire building through its dedicated app. The actual experience is excellent.” – IT Director in the communications industry (Link, as of March 26, 2021 (https://gtnr.it/3p70IwC)] “The overall experience of Huawei CampusInsight is excellent. The web management interface is clean and comprehensive. The functionality of the platform is useful, which improves the efficiency of our IT team.” – CIO in the transportation industry (Link, as of March 22, 2021 (https://gtnr.it/3uD89N2)]
Long-lasting customer trust stems from Huawei's continued innovation and leadership in the campus network domain.
In March 2021, Huawei announced its newly upgraded, future-proof CloudCampus 3.0 Solution, which offers stand-out features, such as fully wireless networking, one global network with SD-WAN for high-speed interconnection, SDN-driven cloud management, and user- and application-centric intelligent O&M. Huawei also launched all-new campus network products, such as AirEngine Wi-Fi 6, CloudEngine S multi-GE switches, Wi-Fi 6 CPEs, and NetEngine AR8000. These new additions position enterprises of all sizes to inspire organizational innovation, unleash the value of data, improve O&M efficiency, and ensure stable and reliable services in the cloud era.
