While Huawei (News - Alert) is viewed with critical and inquisitive eyes here in the U.S., the world recognizes it as a leader in 5G and next generation networking. As the workforce settles in at home, it’s integral to support them with the right tools – and the right network partner is crucial.

Huawei announced it has been named a 2020 Gartner (News - Alert) Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for WAN Edge Infrastructure, putting the Huawei NetEngine AR routers and CloudWAN solutions in the spotlight.

"We're thrilled to be named a 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice. I would like to express my gratitude to all customers for the feedback they have shared with us through Gartner Peer Insights," said Gu Xiongfei, President of Huawei WAN Domain. "Huawei is committed to providing first-class solutions and products that meet customer requirements and receive their recognition. In the future, we will hold fast to customer-centricity and continued innovation, and persist in helping customers to accelerate digital transformation."

Government, finance and carrier customers sang the SD-WAN provider’s praises in regard to support, capabilities, O&M as well as deployment.  Among the 30 Customers’ Choice vendors, Huawei’s overall rating of 4.8 scored second highest.

The 4.8 mark fell just shy of Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice top point getter, CloudGenix – acquired by Palo Alto Networks this week – and its score of 4.9.

Huawei is an unquestioned member of networking’s lead pack, on the bleeding edge of innovation and enabling connectivity at a time when industry needs it most.
