"It was very difficult to get technical support, here in Egypt. There is no local support available.""The protocols can be tunneled, but on a global basis, not on an interface, and this is a feature that should be added.""It would be nice to have a more available list of modules that you can get for this solution.""The stability of this solution should be improved.""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.""In the next release of this solution, I would like to see better integration with software-defined networking.""The initial setup of switches is not that simple.""The operating system, Junos OS, often has bugs which forces rollbacks or additional upgrades to resolve."
