Juniper Ethernet Switches Review

A stable network component that supports the Spanning Tree Protocol

What is our primary use case?

We use Juniper Ethernet switches for managing resources in our network.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP).

What needs improvement?

The configuration could be made simpler.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Juniper Ethernet switches for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable solution and we use it on a daily basis.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There are five people in my team who use the Juniper switches.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not been in direct contact with technical support from Juniper because we deal with a vendor in Indonesia. If we have problems that they are unable to solve then the request will be forwarded to the Juniper Technical Center.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I also have experience with Cisco Ethernet switches. I find that Cisco is simpler to work with but Juniper has a steadier configuration. We have more Juniper switches in the company.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is simple, although there is some difference between different versions. The configuration is similar to Linux, so it was simple for me because I have Linux skills. The deployment will take between one and two hours.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We currently have an EX 2200 but we want to upgrade to an EX 4300.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, this is a good product and I recommend it. It has been working fine, for us.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
