"We would like it if there was more security added in future releases.""Jupiter Switches' configuration is a little difficult to understand.""Support could be improved.""The packet channelizing feature should be improved.""The technical support from Juniper Ethernet Switches could be better.""The Virtual Chassis Fabric is kind of complicated to troubleshoot sometimes. On the MPLS side, they're good — they're fine for the pseudo-wires and stuff—but they need more work on the LAN. It is difficult to troubleshoot their LAN technologies like Virtual Chassis.""The price is in the intermediate range. It is not overly expensive, but also not cheap. It could stand improvement.""The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable."

"In a future release, the solution could improve by being more secure and allowing the configuration of each port.""This solution is not good for distribution at the core.""The D-Link Ethernet Switches have to be replaced because they are difficult to manage and security is poor. They should add centralized manageability to make the solution better, it will allow administrators to better know what is happening on the network.""The technical support needs a lot of improvement.""They need to have some more high-end switches.""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.""The solution needs better local support."
