Researched Cisco Cloud Services Router but chose Juniper Enterprise Routers: Good flexibility, capacity, and firewall throughput
Find out what your peers are saying about Cisco Cloud Services Router vs. Juniper Enterprise Routers and other solutions. Updated: March 2020.
407,401 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The most valuable feature is the SNMP traps that I use to monitor the router and the availability of the network.
The most important feature is that it is designed for mobile vehicle communication in harsh conditions.
It provides peace of mind because it is a stable product that you aren't going to lose sleep over at night wondering if it will be running or not.
It integrates well with the other products we're using. We have it with multiple windows like Palo Alto, Arista and it easily integrated with them.
It allowed us to create a more secure VPN than we would have been able to do without it.
It handles stress very well. We have not reached a point of needing to worry about its capabilities.
It seems pretty stable. We have never had any issues with it.
It connects all the accounts with the weaknesses, and this is what we were looking for. Also, it connects with the on-premise side.
The flexibility of the MPLS configuration is very good.
The solution is quite stable. We've found it to be very good. There aren't bugs, glitches, or crashes.
Users are able to easily configure the whole solution via simple data.
I think that the extensions are very valuable. The way you can test the configuration before applying that configuration permanently is very helpful. The rollback configuration is also very useful.
On the SRX, the firewall is very easy to configure, especially when you want to filter out traffic.
The most valuable feature is the capacity of the throughput for the firewall.
You can use this router in a scalable solution but it has its limitations.
I would like to see better security, where there are more access controls and data confidentiality.
I would like the ability to moderate between devices on-premise to off-premise. This would be a vast improvement.
They have an online registration that happens after they pick up block months. If they could decrease to yearly or something, sometimes the device is not cell phone accessible. That becomes an issue or challenge for us. If that can be improved, that would be really great.
It is too complex. It is not easy to set up, even with the documentation that they provided. It is a little confusing.
The ease of use within the AWS environment needs to improve. Sometimes, it is very esoteric in how you use it. Therefore, you have to learn to use it, then you are able to.
I would like some deployment examples and guides specific to AWS VPCs and how to separate your subnets. Then, how they tie-in with the Internet gateway and any NAT services that we are running on our VPC. This would be extremely helpful.
It does the job, but it's not cloud native. It could be even better, like having a single pane of glass and being less expensive.
If you are setting up a site-to-site VPN between a Juniper and Cisco device then you may encounter some issues.
The solution needs to offer SDN features.
One thing that the product can do better is clustering. Rather than just having two of them, it would help if there was one cluster to extend to more notes in the cluster itself.
In terms of improvement, I would like for it to effectively protect against the broadcast storms, multicast storms, and DDoS attacks.
Most IT equipment now has graphical interfaces, and there is a need for the Juniper routers to have a more intuitive web interface.
The price of this solution should be improved.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing is good for what it offers.
Purchasing the product on the AWS Marketplace was very simplistic. Our organization was trying to centralize our billing costs, and simplicity was best.
The pricing is fine, though it might have been cheaper going through a partner or doing a direct buy.
Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was easy; click a button and you have it.
The cost needs improvement. It is very expensive through the AWS Marketplace.
The price is a little high, more than what we wanted to pay. This is one area where we would like to understanding how the price could be brought down a bit more.
Purchasing it through the AWS Marketplace was very simple. We went through the AWS Marketplace because it was the easiest way to get the product up and running very quickly.
The should make the Dynamic Multipoint VPN solution more affordable.
An additional license can be purchased for support of a next-generation firewall.
