"There is no end to the ability to scale Juniper."
"The solution has a high level of network functionality."
"The Juniper Ethernet switch feature I find the most valuable is reliability."
"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."
"The virtual Chassis feature for stacking is good in general, with high bandwidth for the link, which is good."
"In terms of performance, Juniper switches have a more user-friendly interface and more features than Cisco products."
"You willuse almost every feature on every switch to some degree because the utility is valuable."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the Junos operating system."
"They have some of the fastest speeds available."
"The most valuable features of this solution are the auto-complete functionality and the end-to-end functionalities such as routing with the channel."
"Very stable solution with a very low failure rate."
"The installation is very straightforward."
"Cisco Ethernet Switches are stable."
"The solution offers great bandwidth and speed."
"The main features of this solution are performance and ease of use."
"It is very scalable."
"Technical support is excellent. They are very helpful."
"Its distribution channel and the ease of availability should be improved."
"The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable."
"In an upcoming release, Juniper Ethernet Switches could improve by having more microservices."
"Wireless and monitoring definitely could be improved."
"The initial setup for Juniper switches is complex. Juniper has a new program that solves that problem a little bit, but it is expensive, so I don't use it. It is Juniper Mesh, Juniper Wire, or something like that where you plug in a switch, and it goes out to their cloud, finds a config, and brings it down. So, you can do everything cloud-based, but there is a fee for that. It is expensive, so I've never used it. If we were starting, we would try to do something like that. It is more for a large enterprise for managing hundreds of switches versus what we're doing. They should make its price more cost-effective or include it for new or smaller companies."
"They could improve the code, as there are some issues with it."
"The packet channelizing feature should be improved."
"Has a steep learning curve."
"Broadcom's biggest issue is that they don't like to share information."
"In terms of features, they tick all the boxes as of now. That could be because we tailor the solution around the product. I have not seen anything that pulls me back or is not working well for me. However, there could be better integration with the network monitoring systems. It doesn't mean it is currently not there, but there could be better discoverability with some of the network monitoring systems to be able to have more visibility. When you're setting up a control room, you can have more visibility into what is going on in the network. It has been doing that, but it can do that more."
"The user interface, the UI, could be better."
"They can make the licensing model a little easier."
"The installation is difficult and requires further training documentations."
"The local support resources for Cisco in Bangledesh are very poor and should be increased."
"We'd like the pricing to be lowered."
"If Cisco Ethernet Switches can work both on-prem and in the cloud, it would be an advantage."
"Up to a certain network size, it is easy to scale, but after that, it becomes difficult."
