Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Junos OS is extremely flexible and easy to pick up.""The most valuable features of Juniper Ethernet Switches are the simple configuration and ruggedness.""It's easy to use.""The most valuable feature is switching on our network.""The virtual Chassis feature for stacking is good in general, with high bandwidth for the link, which is good.""The solution is easy to use and has good integration.""The thing that sets Juniper apart from most switches is that when you're in the command line and you make a configuration change, you just write the command and then say "commit confirmed minutes". For example, I'm configuring a switch here in my office, which is five miles away, and I say, "commit confirmed 5". If I can't get back to the interface within five minutes to be able to make sure the switch came up, it rolls back to the previous configuration. This way I do not get locked out, or the switch doesn't get messed up because of the incorrect configuration. That's an automatic feature, which is pretty slick. I haven't seen that feature with other vendors that I've worked with. That's probably my most favorite feature.""There is no end to the ability to scale Juniper."

Cons
"The interface could be better. It needs improvement.""Has a steep learning curve.""I would like the ability to operate with other operating systems.""The security features for the product should be more unified for the product regardless of the product model.""The upgrading of the system should be simplified and made faster.""Its distribution channel and the ease of availability should be improved.""We need to start seeing some kind of AI to assist with some of what we really want to accomplish from a policy standpoint to achieve better efficiency.""The management tools are limited in their abilities, and suffer from upgrade problems."

"I think there's nothing that needs to be improved because the company is no longer in existence."

More 3Com H3C Switches Cons →

"The solution needs better local support.""They need to have some more high-end switches.""It should be more stable, and it should have good integration with the cloud. It should support configuration, supervision, and control through the cloud.""We have issues with the stability.""They could be more stable. They were not as resistant as Cisco. After some time, some of them failed. This could be because we import quite a lot of products from different horizons, so there is no guarantee of quality. In Africa, these products don't always directly come from the manufacturer. We get these products from the Middle East or Asia. Therefore, you cannot be sure that the quality is exactly similar to what you have in Europe or America.""In a future release, the solution could improve by being more secure and allowing the configuration of each port."
