Cons
"The product could be a little more competitive price-wise.""The command-line interface could be easier to use, perhaps having voice control.""We had an issue with the hardware where one or two interfaces went down after one and a half years. This issue impacted only one or two interfaces, not the whole hardware.""It would be good if I could get a 24-port, 10 gig module.""If you work for a small business, then Cisco would be best.""It would be better and easier for us to buy if the price were reduced.""The need to come up with a bit more flexibility in their range of models.""It's an expensive product."

"Wireless and monitoring definitely could be improved.""The upgrading of the system should be simplified and made faster.""I have found the scalability could be improved in the version I was using.""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 price is in the intermediate range. It is not overly expensive, but also not cheap. It could stand improvement.""The security features for the product should be more unified for the product regardless of the product model.""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 management platforms for the network need improvement."
