What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that the CLI is the same on all of the Juniper devices, including routers, switches, and firewalls.

What needs improvement?

The protocols can be tunneled, but on a global basis, not on an interface, and this is a feature that should be added. I would like to see all of the features unified between platforms, families, and models. This would make it easier to… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There are different licenses available for these switches that are based on the features. We purchased the box for a one-time charge, and we are paying a yearly support fee of several hundred Euros.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We have two other types of switches that we run in our data center. There are Cisco switches to handle a lower capacity, and we also have Extreme switches. We purchased Extreme switches because we were given a good price at the time… more»

What other advice do I have?

There are many different types of switches in different categories. It is best to look, right from the beginning, at what features are needed. You do not want to pay for Enterprise licenses if you don't need those features. Be sure to look… more»

What is most valuable?

I have found Junos OS to be the most valuable feature. It is extremely flexible and easy to pick up. The layout (similar to .XML) does take some time to get used to, but… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We moved to Juniper from an outdated Cisco environment, so the immediate change was extremely dramatic (as it should be with any new vendor). In regards to Junos Space… more»

What needs improvement?

Updates and management tools: * The updates are constantly broken, which has been a problem for years. You definitely need to read the release notes to understand the… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

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.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We previously used Cisco and Extreme Networks. We switched due to our planned refresh cycle, as well as cost.

What other advice do I have?

It works with third-party SFPs.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We had an open bid process. We evaluated Cisco, Extreme Networks, Brocade, and Juniper.

What is most valuable?

What I like most about this solution is that it is secure.

What needs improvement?

They need to have more marketing in Egypt. The technical support in Egypt needs to be improved because I was struggling to get technical support. Having documentation provided in Arabic would be nice, but not necessary, as most everyone speaks and understands English well enough. I would like to… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Previously we used Cisco. From my understanding and from what I was told, it was complex, hard to handle, not customer familiar or customer friendly.

What do you think of Juniper Ethernet Switches?

What is our primary use case?

The primary use is as a datacenter, as aggregation and access switches. They are also used in wireless nodes in the core switch segment receiving all last mile services, as in optical fiber.

How has it helped my organization?

Juniper supports all our connectivity infrastructure in our datacenter, supporting optimal availability and performance for services.

What is most valuable?

The Virtual Chassis, because you have a centralized administration of a set of switches which makes the operation more efficient.

What needs improvement?

Support prices and licensing scheme need to be improved to allow some features to be purchased at lower costs, for example, RPM.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.
