We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is the Linux shell, which is useful for troubleshooting or capturing traffic."
"What we like most is its performance to price ratio."
"It's an extremely reliable platform for the network switches we use."
"The solution has good load latency. They're the market leader in this aspect right now."
"The solution is very stable."
"It is very stable. It has good hardware and very stable code. It provides good value for its price. They are a very lean type of organization, so they are very responsive, and they're able to focus more on their platform versus having multiple products out there."
"What I like most about this solution is that it is secure."
"The most valuable feature is that the CLI is the same on all of the Juniper devices, including routers, switches, and firewalls."
"The ease of management through the command line interface is very good."
"Juniper is the best when it comes to the core layer."
"The scalability is excellent. It's one of the aspects of the solution that is quite good."
"The GUI interface distinguishes it from other vendors and makes it easy to operate."
"It has features that allow us to go back to previous configurations."
"This is a lower cost product with better features than the competition."
"The CVP management platform needs to be improved."
"The intent-based networking management, together with the provider of these solutions that are already free, would be beneficial."
"The solution needs to accommodate new features."
"The solution needs to improve their product range."
"Its price can be better."
"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."
"Arista is very expensive. Not everybody is in a position to spend $70,000 to $80,000 for one switch."
"It is pretty pricey for a networking platform. It is on par with Cisco."
"We purchased the box for a one-time charge, and we are paying a yearly support fee of several hundred Euros."
"The maintenance cost is approximately €2,000 ($2,200 USD) per year, including support, for our entire fleet."
"This solution is cheaper than Cisco or HP switches."
"The Juniper switches are less expensive than competing brands."
"You don't need to license every switch. We only chose to cover support on core/key equipment and keep a cold spare available when needed."
"Juniper costs less than the competition. As a comparison, Cisco is 33% more."
"The pricing for the support is very high."
"It's was $100,000 per year."
