We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Juniper Ethernet Switches are high-end solutions.""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.""Juniper Switches' best feature is its flexibility.""The most valuable features of Juniper Ethernet Switches are the simple configuration and ruggedness.""It's pretty good as compared to other vendors.""It is stable.""The most valuable feature is switching on our network."

"For a home or small business, the solution offers a very good web interface.""It is a stable and good product.""It's scalable. It is cloud-based controlled. We don't need to buy a dedicated controller. It allows me to control all of my access points everywhere in all my companies.""Cisco Linksys Ethernet Switches is stable.""I have found the solution has great standards and compatibility across all vendors.""Cisco Linksys Ethernet Switches have a good interface, and the documentation is detailed.""They are good for connecting users. These switches are very stable. We have been using them for three years, and we haven't had any problems.""Cisco Linksys Ethernet Switches are pretty good overall."

More Cisco Linksys Ethernet Switches Pros →

"The initial setup is straightforward.""Its integration is the most valuable.""I can't find anything wrong with our D-Link Ethernet Switches.""These switches are simple and easy to configure.""The initial setup of D-Link Ethernet Switches is very easy.""The solution is easy to use.""The product is simple to manage.""The solution is scalable."

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 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.""In an upcoming release, Juniper Ethernet Switches could improve by having more microservices.""I would like the ability to operate with other operating systems.""Has a steep learning curve.""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.""The interface could be better. It needs improvement.""The technical support from Juniper Ethernet Switches could be better."

More Juniper Ethernet Switches Cons →

"They just need to simplify the learning curve.""This product does not scale to environments where there is a lot of network traffic.""It's no longer stable, the Wi-Fi on this device is no longer stable.""The price of the solution should be lower and it should have better security and scalability.""Scalability is an area that can be improved.""Its scalability can be better. It is not suitable for enterprises. It is for small and medium businesses. It also needs system improvements. It needs new technology to improve the system.""Their performance should be improved.""It should be cheaper. We need a better price from Cisco. Its initial setup and support should also be improved."

More Cisco Linksys Ethernet Switches Cons →

"The solution needs better local support.""The D-Link Ethernet Switches have to be replaced because they are difficult to manage and security is poor. They should add centralized manageability to make the solution better, it will allow administrators to better know what is happening on the network.""They need to have some more high-end switches.""This solution is not good for distribution at the core.""We have issues with the stability.""It should be more stable, and it should have good integration with the cloud. It should support configuration, supervision, and control through the cloud.""In a future release, the solution could improve by being more secure and allowing the configuration of each port.""They could be more stable. They were not as resistant as Cisco. After some time, some of them failed. This could be because we import quite a lot of products from different horizons, so there is no guarantee of quality. In Africa, these products don't always directly come from the manufacturer. We get these products from the Middle East or Asia. Therefore, you cannot be sure that the quality is exactly similar to what you have in Europe or America."
