"The security is good."
"Junos OS is extremely flexible and easy to pick up."
"Juniper switches are very good with MPLS."
"The solution is certainly scalable."
"The solution has a high level of network functionality."
"In terms of performance, Juniper switches have a more user-friendly interface and more features than Cisco products."
"One of the nicest things about Juniper switches is they work well with other vendor products. When you have to go into a situation where other vendor switches are present, you can make it work."
"You willuse almost every feature on every switch to some degree because the utility is valuable."
"The solution has good load latency. They're the market leader in this aspect right now."
"The solution is very stable."
"It is very stable. It has good hardware and very stable code. It provides good value for its price. They are a very lean type of organization, so they are very responsive, and they're able to focus more on their platform versus having multiple products out there."
"The configuration capabilities were good."
"The best part is the single operating system that they have. Regardless of your model, it's the same operating system functioning across the board, which means you don't have to worry about backward compatibilities between your older switches and the new ones that you deploy."
"The most valuable features of the Arista Networks Platform are the EVPN and VXLAN. It has comprehensive features."
"We find the CloudVision switching feature of this solution really useful."
"It's an extremely reliable platform for the network switches we use."
"I have not had any issues with our Brocade switches."
"The reliability of Brocade is the most valuable feature. The solution has been up and running for over ten years without any fail, fixes required, or breakdowns. It is a very strong piece of equipment."
"The switches last for a very long time."
"The updates are constantly breaking."
"The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable."
"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."
"Juniper's support could be much better and faster."
"They could improve the code, as there are some issues with it."
"I would like the ability to operate with other operating systems."
"We are not very pleased with their performance."
"The interface could be better. It needs improvement."
"The stability of this solution needs to be improved as part of the next upgrade."
"Arista Networks Platform should focus on improving the compatibility or integration with Cisco solutions."
"The solution is a bit pricey."
"Its price can be better."
"The solution is quite expensive. One of the negative aspects of it is the pricing."
"The solution needs to improve their product range."
"The community is good but is not good enough. It still needs to grow more."
"The solution needs to accommodate new features."
"The solution could be more secure."
"These switches are no longer supported."
"Brocade Ethernet Switches need a better interface and centralized management."
