"The virtual Chassis feature for stacking is good in general, with high bandwidth for the link, which is good."
"It's pretty good as compared to other vendors."
"It is stable."
"I like the simplicity of it."
"Juniper switches are very good with MPLS."
"I like that it's fairly easy to implement these ethernet switches."
"Both Juniper and Cisco switches are interoperable."
"Juniper Switches' best feature is its flexibility."
"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."
"Arista Networks Platform offers straightforward deployment, and has good features. Support for the platform is also good."
"The configuration capabilities were good."
"It provides telemetry and visibility for many metrics that are not supported by most of the other vendors. Out of the box, no third party solutions are needed."
"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 solution is very stable."
"It's an extremely reliable platform for the network switches we use."
"The solution has good load latency. They're the market leader in this aspect right now."
"Its simplicity and web interface were most valuable. I also liked the two-factor authentication."
"The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable."
"Jupiter Switches' configuration is a little difficult to understand."
"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."
"The packet channelizing feature should be improved."
"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 stability could be better. We find, for example, Cisco, to be more stable."
"The management platforms for the network need improvement."
"The technical support from Juniper Ethernet Switches could be better."
"Something that you will often hear about Arista products is that the price is a bit too high and, like with Cisco, we sometimes have problems with our customers because of its pricing."
"The solution needs to improve their product range."
"The solution is a bit pricey."
"The solution is quite expensive. One of the negative aspects of it is the pricing."
"Arista Networks Platform should focus on improving the compatibility or integration with Cisco solutions."
"The community is good but is not good enough. It still needs to grow more."
"An area for improvement in Arista Networks Platform is its integration, e.g. it needs to have more integration with its new products. Incorporating more security and cloud is also another area for improvement in the platform."
"Its price can be better."
"Its scalability can be better. If possible, it can have Hyper POE. I am not sure if there is a fiber version."
