Juniper Ethernet Switches Review

Easy to install, easy to use, and there is a lot of documentation

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for routing.

What is most valuable?

It's easy to use.

What needs improvement?

The interface could be better. It needs improvement.

We do everything in configuration files and it is not simple. It is quite complicated when you configure some rules for the firewall because it has several firewall levels.

In some switches, at times we have some issues, but it's on the infrastructure part and it's not the latest hardware.

In the future, I would like to see more standardized software. For example, some of the switches use some features that should be implemented in Juniper.

The software should be more stable.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using these switches for more than four years.

We are not using the latest version.

We use Juniper MX960 and the QFX5100 for the core switch.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's a scalable product.

We have millions of clients who are using this solution daily.

In our organization, we have 20 people who are using it.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not contacted technical support.

There is a lot of documentation that you can read whenever required.

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

Previously, we used Cisco. We switched because we run 100 switches and started to use the IPv6 and we were told that we had to pay $100,000 for the IPv6 license.

In Juniper, you will not have this issue because many of the licenses and a lot of software are already included in the basic version.

How was the initial setup?

The installation was simple.

The configuration of the hardware took a few weeks because it was the first time we deployed it.

We have a team of two technical members to maintain this product.

What about the implementation team?

We completed the installation ourselves.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this product to anyone who is interested in using it.

We plan to continue using these switches in the future. It still works and it's quite stable.

I would rate Juniper Ethernet Switches a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
