"The security is good."
"This solution is impeccable."
"The combination of hardware and software makes it a very good solution. It is a modern protocol that they have supported in the switches. The solution has good performance."
"I like that it's fairly easy to implement these ethernet switches."
"Juniper Ethernet Switches are high-end solutions."
"The solution is stable and scalable."
"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."
"The initial setup is straightforward."
"Its integration is the most valuable."
"The solution is easy to use."
"I can't find anything wrong with our D-Link Ethernet Switches."
"The product is simple to manage."
"The solution is scalable."
"These switches are simple and easy to configure."
"I think they have very strong routers because they have multiple processors. I like its easy configuration with applications. For example, configuration with Linux, Iptables, and routing protocols."
"This equipment is resilient and available at a good price."
"This solution is easy to configure and it's very flexible."
"It's pretty stable."
"We have not had any downtime with it. It has been a solid performer that way."
"They have amazing speed and reliability, and they also provide value for money. They are pretty powerful."
"They use wireless and wired connections that include all of the features."
"The most valuable aspect of this solution is the combination of value for money. They're extremely cost effective, yet they provide you with an extensive feature set of things you can do across the board. Also, they're pretty reliable, as far as equipment goes."
"The interface could be better. It needs improvement."
"The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable."
"The upgrading of the system should be simplified and made faster."
"The price is in the intermediate range. It is not overly expensive, but also not cheap. It could stand improvement."
"Has a steep learning curve."
"The stability could be better. We find, for example, Cisco, to be more stable."
"The management platforms for the network need improvement."
"They could improve the code, as there are some issues with it."
"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 need to have some more high-end switches."
"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."
"The solution needs better local support."
"We have issues with the stability."
"It could be more scalable. Product awareness could also be better. There's a lack of awareness when it comes to MikroTik. People only know about Cisco and others, and they won't rely on MikroTik. This is primarily because of hardware limitations. While this product is good economically, it's unsuitable for high-end projects. In the next release, I want this product to be more compatible."
"There needs to be better support for this solution in India. We have no local support."
"As far as improvements, there are basically only two things I would suggest. First, I think they should provide extensive training for the new releases of products, especially in the LTE space. Second, they could spend more time ensuring that their OS releases are more stable, rather than waiting for things to fall apart on the customer's premises before they make the necessary changes."
"If the client wants bigger capacity, there may be some issues. That is, there may be issues with scalability."
"They need to create a license for IBS. I have a lot of clients that have spam on their networks."
"f they can improve the OpenVPN, to make that a bit more straightforward, that would be ideal."
"They should improve technical support and make direct access available to the customers."
"It is slow, old and unfriendly."

Reviews from Real Users
MikroTik stands out among competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its reasonably priced products and its user-friendly user interface, which makes it easy to work and communicate with its hardware.
Parameshwar P., a director at Navyug Networks, writes, "I like MikroTik's GUI. It's completely handy and easy to handle because of its GUI. Despite other brands like Cisco urging me to switch, I didn't because they don't have a GUI. This is the most comfortable thing in my project that anyone can use easily. It’s effortless to maintain MikroTik routers because both screens make it very easy in GUI mode. You can easily interact with your hardware.”
Rodney T., the chief solutions architect at Tech2go Strategic IT Solutions, says, "They are very good at providing the bandwidth for multi-tenants and multi-dwelling units. We're managing Wi-Fi hotspots for hundreds of locations, and the speed and performance are quite there. They also have very cheap 10G products that come with really good and flexible software. They are way cheaper than the top brands, and they're able to deliver the same performance and capabilities."
A principal consultant at a tech services company notes, "The most valuable aspect of this solution is the combination of value for money. They're extremely cost effective, yet they provide you with an extensive feature set of things you can do across the board. Also, they're pretty reliable, as far as equipment goes."
