"Both Juniper and Cisco switches are interoperable."
"The solution is stable and scalable."
"There is no end to the ability to scale Juniper."
"The most valuable features of Juniper Ethernet Switches are the simple configuration and ruggedness."
"It's pretty good as compared to other vendors."
"In terms of performance, Juniper switches have a more user-friendly interface and more features than Cisco products."
"Juniper Ethernet Switches are high-end solutions."
"The combination of hardware and software makes it a very good solution. It is a modern protocol that they have supported in the switches. The solution has good performance."
"The fibre ports that are 10 Gb capacity helped with the travel of a lot of regular as well as video data. Fibre can handle a lot more virtual data than copper twisted-pair, so we got a lot more data and a lot more traffic signals back through the fibre ports, faster, than with copper."
"a value-for-money product and comparatively a very reasonable price compared to competitors like SAP or IBM."
"It's an excellent product. They're high-quality switches, and nothing has failed in the time that we've had them."
"These switches have a good performance, and they are also quickly configurable."
"It is a very good device for our company. It is stable and very scalable."
"The most valuable feature of Aruba Switches is security."
"We have not had any issues with the product and its functions. It has been stable."
"The solution has great open architecture."
"There is a feature where you can use Bluetooth. You can set up a Bluetooth pairing connection and do the configuration through your phone."
"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 upgrading of the system should be simplified and made faster."
"Juniper Ethernet Switches' operating systems get corrupted when the power fails. They have to improve this issue. I may have to use a newer version."
"Stability could be better, especially during a reboot. We have had some issues recently with the software getting corrupt on reboot, which causes a lot of downtime."
"The difficulty of the installation of Juniper Ethernet Switches depends on the environment it is being implemented in. It is fairly straightforward in terms of being able to source the technical information as we need it. However, this process could improve."
"The interface could be better. It needs improvement."
"The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable."
"The price is in the intermediate range. It is not overly expensive, but also not cheap. It could stand improvement."
"I could see them possibly creating a more intuitive software. It's very user-friendly, but there are some things that aren't very intuitive when programming the switches."
"They have limited CLI options in the UI and this is something that needs improvement."
"It would be good if I could get a 24-port, 10 gig module."
"I would prefer it if they reduced the cost of the switches and the access points."
"It's a little less convenient for more simplified management needs."
"It would be better and easier for us to buy if the price were reduced."
"Aruba Switches' price could improve, if they were less expensive it would be beneficial."
"Aruba Switches cover lots of areas and support automated and IOPS and with the central products, but I think when we look at the solutions overall, IOPS devices are not covered so much in Aruba Central. We are in Croatia and it is a small country, I don't know how its situation is in Europe, America, or Asia."
"It's an expensive product."

Some of the benefits of using Aruba switches include:
Reviews from Real Users
Aruba Switches are cutting-edge network creation tools that stand out among their competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are the warranty that guarantees them and the intuitive way in which they are designed. Aruba Switches are protected by lifetime warranties. If a switch malfunctions or is rendered inoperable, it can be quickly replaced. If the line of switches are still available, HPE will send the user the necessary replacement. Aruba Switches are built to be intuitive for users to customize and manipulate. This allows users to make full use of the solution without requiring them to devote a significant level of resources to training.
The head of technical support at a real estate law firm writes, “One valuable feature about HP is the warranty. All switches are very similar when it comes to most functionalities. Most switches provide a one-year warranty, but with HPE switches, if there's a unit that malfunctions, we call them and they replace it the next business day if that line is still available. We had a switch we reported the other day, it was a 25-10, which we procured way back, around 2014, and they replaced it. In general, HP provides a lot of support for its products. We will be doing some tinkering on the VLAN soon, first the layer two, and then connecting the layer three functionalities for some other departments. The advantage of Aruba compared to other switches is their reliability. If the product is trustworthy, I'll continue to use it.”
A network systems engineer at a financial services firm writes, “Their technical support is great. I have used Cisco products, and as compared to Cisco, Aruba's command-line syntax is not as complex. The command-line interface of Aruba switches is quite intuitive. It also has a graphical user interface. With Cisco, using the graphical user interface for configuration can be complex, whereas Aruba simplifies it, and you can easily use the graphical user interface. The configuration is secured. Their graphical user interface is quite robust.”
