Enhancing the capacity would be a welcome improvement.Better documentation to assist with implementation would be helpful.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.

The manageability of the web-based UI needs to be improved.The solution needs to improve its security firewalls and mirror that of, for example, Sophos, or FortiGate.The solution's website isn't that good. When I go to it, I can't find what I'm looking for. However, if I go to a third party's website, I can easily find the information.The biggest thing that needs improvement is the support.I would like to see a cluster feature added, where multiple devices can be configured and managed as one. One is in a standby state while the other is active, and if one fails then the other takes over.In the Israeli market, we are in need of Hebrew support.The user interface allows you to do a lot of things, but it is not user-friendly.They could improve their product if they set, for instance, a controller for wireless LAN. That would allow them to really have something more than an access point.
