Hello,

we're looking for new core and distribution switches for our routed access design. Currently we're using HPE switches running H3C Comware OS. So If it was HPE, we'd buy 5710 switches for core and distribution.

Now someone proposed omegle discord xenderHuawei switches (6720/6730) . Looking at the current CLI, those switches still seem to share a lot of commands with H3C (Huawei 3Com) from past. It seems Huawei sells licenses for activating ~full layer3 features...

Is anyone from here actually using current Huawei devices and can tell about his/her experience with the switches themselves or Huawei's support?

Hi SolomonShawn,
As far as I know, most Layer 3 features of the S6700 do not require a license. For details about the license control items of the S6700, see https://support.huawei.com/hedex/hdx.do?docid=EDOC1100126530&id=EN-US_CONCEPT_0177099685&lang=en.

Generally speaking, 6730-H will have all L3 features and you won't need any extra license for L3. Plus, you can get even more details from following link:
