I don't think I would recommend either in todays political climate.....

    Of the two large Chinese Vendors, which has the better network operating
    system? Huawei is much larger that ZTE is my understanding, but larger does
    not always mean better.
    
    Both of these manufactures have switches and routers. I doubt we will use
    their routing products anytime soon, but the switching products with MPLS
    are what we are exploring. Price wise both of these vendors seem to have
    10G MPLS capable switches that are a 1/4 of the price of a Cisco or Juniper
    wants to charge.
    
    On the Huawei side looks like the S6720 is a fit.
    On the ZTE side, it looks like the ZXR10 5960 Series is a fit.
    
    Has anyone had experience with either of these two switches? How do they
    compare?
    
    Also, for each independent brand, is their switching network operating
    system the same as their routing network operating system that their
    routers run?
