Featured Review
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 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.""Juniper switches are very good with MPLS.""Juniper Ethernet Switches are high-end solutions.""It is stable.""In terms of performance, Juniper switches have a more user-friendly interface and more features than Cisco products.""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.""The solution is certainly scalable."

"Cisco Linksys is scalable. You can use it as an extender, too.""The most valuable feature of Cisco Linksys Ethernet Switches is it is easy to manage.""The product is great for networking.""I have found the solution has great standards and compatibility across all vendors.""Cisco Linksys Ethernet Switches is a stable solution.""It is easy to use and stable.""Linksys Switches are stable.""The installation is easy."

More Cisco Linksys Ethernet Switches Pros →

"The affordability of this solution has been most useful.""The Huawei switches are stable, easy to set up, and cheap.""The solution is easy to set up.""Easy to use, flexible, stable, and offers great performance.""It is easy to understand all the features of Huawei Switches.""If you're a small one-on-one organization, then cost-effective-wise, I would recommend it.""I use it on a daily basis and I find it to be quite stable.""It integrates well."

More Huawei Ethernet Switches Pros →

"Its distribution channel and the ease of availability should be improved.""The technical support from Juniper Ethernet Switches could be better.""The price is in the intermediate range. It is not overly expensive, but also not cheap. It could stand improvement.""Jupiter Switches' configuration is a little difficult to understand.""Has a steep learning curve.""Wireless and monitoring definitely could be improved.""I would like the ability to operate with other operating systems.""The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable."

More Juniper Ethernet Switches Cons →

"You do need a bit of knowledge about the solution. There's a small learning curve involved when implementing the product.""Linksys support is subpar.""The pricing can be a bit unstable.""This product does not generate reports, so I would like to see something with better reporting.""The documentation should be improved from Cisco Linksys Ethernet Switches. Although it hints or refers to being able to do certain operations, they try to get you to load the software instead. They need to be more open with their documentation on using the web interface and give the client the option to use the software or not. This improvement is not on the switch itself, it is in the packaging.""Cisco Linksys Ethernet Switches could improve their price, it is high.""The licensing could be simplified.""Their performance should be improved."

More Cisco Linksys Ethernet Switches Cons →

"The configuration is very difficult even for someone who is already familiar with the configuration process.""It’s hard to get technical support.""The documentation needs to be better.""Devices should have the ability to configure more easily.""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 company needs to provide more on hand training on the product.""We had a few issues with integration."
