Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"This solution is impeccable.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the Junos operating system.""I like the simplicity of it.""The Juniper Ethernet switch feature I find the most valuable is reliability.""The thing that sets Juniper apart from most switches is that when you're in the command line and you make a configuration change, you just write the command and then say "commit confirmed minutes". For example, I'm configuring a switch here in my office, which is five miles away, and I say, "commit confirmed 5". If I can't get back to the interface within five minutes to be able to make sure the switch came up, it rolls back to the previous configuration. This way I do not get locked out, or the switch doesn't get messed up because of the incorrect configuration. That's an automatic feature, which is pretty slick. I haven't seen that feature with other vendors that I've worked with. That's probably my most favorite feature.""It's easy to use.""The most valuable feature is that Juniper is multiple kernels, so there's isolation, which means you won't get a process that runs away, creating problems across the whole platform.""In terms of performance, Juniper switches have a more user-friendly interface and more features than Cisco products."

"Tech support has always been good.""Cisco Ethernet Switches are stable.""I have found the solution to have good scalability. Cisco is the pioneers on switching technology, they are very good.""The security of the switches is pretty impressive. There are many security features available on the product.""The most valuable aspect of the solution is the ability to manage the switches and the ability to have a certain level of familiarity with setting up and configuring the switches.""The solution offers great bandwidth and speed.""The features that I have found most valuable are that it is easy to use and it has good technical support.""Technical support is excellent. They are very helpful."

"Remote access to the router is a huge time saver.""The solution is less expensive than other options.""The ePoE+ is great."

More Luxul Switches Pros →

Cons
"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 management tools are limited in their abilities, and suffer from upgrade problems.""In an upcoming release, Juniper Ethernet Switches could improve by having more microservices.""The price is in the intermediate range. It is not overly expensive, but also not cheap. It could stand improvement.""I have found the scalability could be improved in the version I was using.""I would like the ability to operate with other operating systems.""The interface could be better. It needs improvement.""Jupiter Switches' configuration is a little difficult to understand."

More Juniper Ethernet Switches Cons →

"Cisco could also open the API up to work closely with other systems.""In terms of features, all features are there. I can't find anything new that needs to be added. Its price, however, is a bit higher than other brands and can be improved.""Cisco products are expensive compared to any other solution. Now, there are many competitors that give the same level of services - such as Juniper or Aruba.""You have to be Cisco-certified to work on Cisco products, so we can't get into Cisco to do even basic configurations.""There are some GUI configuration improvements that they can implement in the future for the product models.""Cisco Ethernet Switches could improve if they removed the command line interface and replaced it with a better GUI. It is too difficult at the moment, we always need to figure out the commands.""Cisco is not user-friendly. It would be best if you had a technical expert. The graphical user interface is more like a command line, and most functionalities are on the command line.""I don't like that you have to have a license of 10 years to use the switch. I don't understand that policy."

More Cisco Ethernet Switches Cons →

"You do need to be an IT person in order to handle the initial setup. An AV person would struggle a bit.""The documentation could be improved; it's quite basic.""Documentation and access to it could be greatly improved."

  • "The price could be cheaper."
  • More Juniper Ethernet Switches Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The price is a bit on the high side."
  • "Cisco now has more products that are priced for small businesses, so they do have some cheaper models."
  • "Price is a pain point for us. We've lost a lot of bids, and the reason has been that we majorly quoted Cisco devices. Some of our competitors quoted other devices like Ubiquity or Microchip. Some even quoted this Chinese product TP-Link, and they won the bid over us because we quoted Cisco. Meanwhile, the major reason why we quoted Cisco is reliability and stability from day one. They also last longer. The prices could be worked on so that they become more affordable. We had to deploy a city-wide WiFi network, and we were working in conjunction with Google. Because of the price, even Google recommended a product called Ruckus, so we used Ruckus over Cisco. Its price and license were the main reasons. You have to pay to renew the license every year. Even though you also renew the licenses for Ruckus, but they are much cheaper than Cisco. So, while I would recommend Cisco any time, the trouble remains with the pricing."
  • "The price is on the higher side."
  • "In addition to the fees being high, you pay for support which is also on the higher side."
  • "There are different licensing based on the model of the solution."
  • "It is an expensive product."
  • "Cisco products are not cheap, which is something that can be improved."

  • "The price completely depends on the environment. There are no additional fees."
