Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The hardware side is a very big advantage. We use it 24/7 and we haven't had any problems so far with the switches.""They're straightforward and stable."

More 3Com H3C Switches Pros →

"It has features that allow us to go back to previous configurations.""I like the simplicity of it.""The most valuable feature is the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP).""It is easy to configure, and there are three routing switches.""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.""Juniper switches are very good with MPLS.""There is no end to the ability to scale Juniper.""Juniper Ethernet Switches are high-end solutions."

"When we try to do configuration changes sometimes it malfunctions.""I think there's nothing that needs to be improved because the company is no longer in existence."

More 3Com H3C Switches Cons →

"I have found the scalability could be improved in the version I was using.""The upgrading of the system should be simplified and made faster.""The configuration could be made simpler.""They could improve the code, as there are some issues with it.""In the next release of this solution, I would like to see better integration with software-defined networking.""The management tools are limited in their abilities, and suffer from upgrade problems.""Some areas of technical support could be better.""The initial setup of switches is not that simple."
