Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Enables direct access to clusters.""The fibre ports that are 10 Gb capacity helped with the travel of a lot of regular as well as video data. Fibre can handle a lot more virtual data than copper twisted-pair, so we got a lot more data and a lot more traffic signals back through the fibre ports, faster, than with copper.""We are able to customize this solution based on the customer's requirements.""This is a dependable switch which will help you sleep at night.""The solution has a very good web interface. It makes it easy to manage everything."

"There is no end to the ability to scale Juniper.""Juniper switches are very good with MPLS.""The solution is easy to use and has good integration.""Both Juniper and Cisco switches are interoperable.""I like the simplicity of it.""The combination of hardware and software makes it a very good solution. It is a modern protocol that they have supported in the switches. The solution has good performance.""The solution is certainly scalable.""You willuse almost every feature on every switch to some degree because the utility is valuable."

Cons
"The product would be better if it were completely compatible with other switching products.""technical support response time is sometimes very slow.""There needs to be better integration with the interface.""I could see them possibly creating a more intuitive software. It's very user-friendly, but there are some things that aren't very intuitive when programming the switches.""In future versions, I would like to see improvements in networking speed."

"The initial setup of switches is not that simple.""The management platforms for the network need improvement.""The configuration could be made simpler.""The operating system, Junos OS, often has bugs which forces rollbacks or additional upgrades to resolve.""Wireless and monitoring definitely could be improved.""The price is in the intermediate range. It is not overly expensive, but also not cheap. It could stand improvement.""The initial setup for Juniper switches is complex. Juniper has a new program that solves that problem a little bit, but it is expensive, so I don't use it. It is Juniper Mesh, Juniper Wire, or something like that where you plug in a switch, and it goes out to their cloud, finds a config, and brings it down. So, you can do everything cloud-based, but there is a fee for that. It is expensive, so I've never used it. If we were starting, we would try to do something like that. It is more for a large enterprise for managing hundreds of switches versus what we're doing. They should make its price more cost-effective or include it for new or smaller companies.""The difficulty of the installation of Juniper Ethernet Switches depends on the environment it is being implemented in. It is fairly straightforward in terms of being able to source the technical information as we need it. However, this process could improve."

"The pricing for the support is very high.""The pricing is very aggressive.""The solution does not require a license to use it.""It's was $100,000 per year.""Juniper costs less than the competition. As a comparison, Cisco is 33% more.""We only pay for support.""The Juniper switches are less expensive than competing brands.""There is a subscription payment model or you can purchase licenses on a one, two, and five-year basis. If you want decent support, the solution is not expensive."
