Cisco takes the lion share of the market with its routers at 70%. Using the 192.168.l.254, it sets home routers to this private IPv4 network. The 192.168.l.254 has become a consensus among the telecommunications industry. Dependable, reliable, and trustworthy many enterprises prefer Cisco. Its integration into the telecom industry is ubiqitous. With the military and government contracts security must be top level so using a company that has a record of credibility and trustworthiness becomes a given.
Huawei Company Considerations
A far second is Huawei. Huawei, a Chinese company that makes a good 192.168.l.254 router. But like so many things originating in China, its systems in house lack transparency. Unfortunately, even the employees cannot tell you how it all works.
The telecommunication industry has embraced them and tried repeatedly to bring them up to global behavior standards. They use the industry consensus 192.168.l.254, but the problem as always with Chinese companies is they are embroiled in intellectual property trials. Do you want a Huawei 192.168.l.254 router doing CIA communiques?
The Real Issue
The basis of communications at any level is trust. If you cannot trust a company, there is no relationship. Both products serve the need. The real question is do you buy products from companies you trust that respect your privacy, your intellectual property, and are transparent or do you use that which is known and proven to steal?
