Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature is the capacity of the throughput for the firewall.""On the SRX, the firewall is very easy to configure, especially when you want to filter out traffic.""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.""Users are able to easily configure the whole solution via simple data.""The solution is quite stable. We've found it to be very good. There aren't bugs, glitches, or crashes.""The flexibility of the MPLS configuration is very good.""The stability of Juniper is better than Cisco's.""The most valuable feature is the standard routing protocol."

"The radius and wireless features are the most valuable aspects of the solution.""The cost and versatility are the solution's most valuable features. You can do anything with them if you know how to. The solution has a whole portfolio of routing features available.""The most valuable feature is controlling the bandwidth.""We have found this solution is quite robust and there are a lot of features in a small device.""The flexible IP firewall and IP network address translation make it very easy to give access to internal services.""The best part about MikroTik Routers is the price.""We're very happy with what we are getting out of the solution in general. The features are good. They're comparable to other brands such as Cisco and HP.""The solution offers very good multi-routing."

Cons
"The price of this solution should be improved.""Most IT equipment now has graphical interfaces, and there is a need for the Juniper routers to have a more intuitive web interface.""In terms of improvement, I would like for it to effectively protect against the broadcast storms, multicast storms, and DDoS attacks.""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.""The solution needs to offer SDN features.""If you are setting up a site-to-site VPN between a Juniper and Cisco device then you may encounter some issues.""Better documentation to assist with implementation would be helpful.""Enhancing the capacity would be a welcome improvement."

"The queuing functionality needs improvement. The initial setup could be simplified.""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.""The user interface allows you to do a lot of things, but it is not user-friendly.""In the Israeli market, we are in need of Hebrew 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.""The biggest thing that needs improvement is the support.""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 solution needs to improve its security firewalls and mirror that of, for example, Sophos, or FortiGate."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"An additional license can be purchased for support of a next-generation firewall.""There is a license for this solution and the price is very competitive. The cost is less expensive than some competitors, such as Cisco. There are additional costs for support licenses.""The price of this solution is better than other competitors, such as Cisco. We receive a lot of discounts which make the price less expensive and attractive."

"This product is a one-time purchase.""In our last project, we used two hundred units and the price was approximately 500 Shekels ($140 USD).""There is no licensing fee in addition to the hardware, but we do pay an annual fee for support.""This product is cheaper than competing products by other vendors.""There are not any external or hidden costs.""The price-performance is great.""MikroTik is very cost-effective and quite good for the price. It performs very well. For one of our customers, the existing setup comprises Cisco Catalyst switches, and it is about 10 to 15 years old. We're looking into upgrading in a cost-effective way to get the performance and yet still be at par with the quality and expectations that customers have from Cisco. Price-wise, Cisco is really expensive, and customers are expecting something different than Cisco so that they can save on IT costs. They don't have the same budget that they had before when they installed Cisco products. That's why they're looking for a solution that can provide performance and features without too much money or investment. We're looking at some alternative brands, such as NETGEAR and MikroTik, to support our proposal.""The main reason we use this solution is for the price — it's very cheap."
