Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Both Juniper and Cisco switches are interoperable.""The most valuable feature is switching on our network.""Juniper switches are very good with MPLS.""The Juniper Ethernet switch feature I find the most valuable is reliability.""The solution is certainly scalable.""In terms of performance, Juniper switches have a more user-friendly interface and more features than Cisco products.""The solution is stable and scalable.""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."

"I have not had any issues with our Brocade switches.""The switches last for a very long time.""It has good integration with HPE Primera. They have smart zoning in which the administration is very easy. You don't have to do anything. Zoning and other things are done automatically if you just enable the smart zoning. That's one very good thing in HP."

"If you're a small one-on-one organization, then cost-effective-wise, I would recommend it.""This product is competitive technically with the best products in the class.""The Huawei switches are stable, easy to set up, and cheap.""What we like the most is that the price is reasonable and it's easy to manage.""Scalability isn't an issue.""Easy to use, flexible, stable, and offers great performance.""So far, so good when it comes to stability.""I use it on a daily basis and I find it to be quite stable."

More Huawei Ethernet Switches Pros →

"The configuration could be made simpler.""The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable.""The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable.""Its distribution channel and the ease of availability should be improved.""Wireless and monitoring definitely could be improved.""Stability could be better, especially during a reboot. We have had some issues recently with the software getting corrupt on reboot, which causes a lot of downtime.""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.""In an upcoming release, Juniper Ethernet Switches could improve by having more microservices."

More Juniper Ethernet Switches Cons →

"These switches are no longer supported.""It should be simpler. There are still some things that can be simpler in the Brocade switches.""The solution could be more secure."

More Brocade Ethernet Switches Cons →

"Devices should have the ability to configure more easily.""Huawei Ethernet Switches are scalable but can be improved.""The configuration could be improved and deployment should be easier.""The graphical user interface could be much better.""It is not easy to use if you need to monitor, patch or update. It needs to be configured by a network specialist because it doesn't have an overall central monitoring tool or anything like that. I'd say no ease of use.""The stability could be improved.""We would like to see additional backup solutions, since we have several degrees of backup.""The configuration is very difficult even for someone who is already familiar with the configuration process."
