Juniper Ethernet Switches Review

Good stability and extremely good scalability but doesn't offer very good integrations

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for our data center.

What is most valuable?

The switches are pretty typical. They offer good control and good switching.

What needs improvement?

We're currently in the process of switching to Cisco as we haven't been too happy with Juniper.

We are undergoing a migration to software-defined networking. Different vendors have to integrate with each other and we are not seeing this type of capability within Juniper. We are getting left behind in this technology trend by staying with this solution. Juniper is also losing a bit of market share because of this. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for between five and ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is excellent. It's one of the aspects of the solution that is quite good.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is not so good. Sometimes we contact them, but they don't offer the best service.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. I joined the company after deployment, so I'm not sure how long it takes.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model.

I'd rate the solution no more than seven out of ten.
