More Broadcom StrataDNX Cons »

"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."

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."

Top Answer: The scaling number of IPv4/IPv6 RIB/FIB, OSPF/IS-IS/BGP routing table and MAC table size could be increased.
Top Answer: We use StrataDNX mainly as the mobile backhaul solution for IP routing. We're using StrataDNX chipset in our IP router portfolio
Top Answer: I like that it's fairly easy to implement these ethernet switches.
Top Answer: Stability could be better, especially during a reboot. We have had some issues recently with the software getting corrupt on reboot, which causes a lot of downtime.
