We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

The exact licensing is not something I know about, but I do know that Juniper is a less expensive solution when compared to the competition.
Juniper Ethernet switches are more cost-effective than Cisco.
This solution is cheaper than Cisco or HP switches.
The maintenance cost is approximately €2,000 ($2,200 USD) per year, including support, for our entire fleet.
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.
I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
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.
