What do you like best?

Huawei equipment is increasingly being an excellent option for delivering services to Service providers and medium and large companies.

With the growing need for bandwidth delivery to consumer users, the equipment has to support all this demand and also supports the new technologies that are appearing at an ever greater speed than the development of Hardware.

However, Huawei has managed to please the biggest of these companies because it has made large investments in the development of new technology as an example of 5G which is already a great reality in large urban centers and is coming to take care of this telecommunications market.

What do you dislike?

Before, Huawei sinned a lot because it did not have as much training option so that the market had qualified professionals to meet the demand for this new market. But today we have already found several trainings on Huawei's own elearning platform with several courses in various technology segments and in some cases entitled to a Voucher for those who can pass the exam proposed on the platform itself to take the official exam that can be taken online.
