We performed a comparison between Extreme VDX and Luxul Switches based on real PeerSpot user reviews.
Find out in this report how the two Ethernet Switches solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The Juniper Ethernet switch feature I find the most valuable is reliability."
"In terms of performance, Juniper switches have a more user-friendly interface and more features than Cisco products."
"The most valuable features of Juniper Ethernet Switches are the simple configuration and ruggedness."
"It's easy to use."
"The security is good."
"The virtual Chassis feature for stacking is good in general, with high bandwidth for the link, which is good."
"The solution is stable and scalable."
"Juniper Switches' best feature is its flexibility."
"Its simplicity and web interface were most valuable. I also liked the two-factor authentication."
"Remote access to the router is a huge time saver."
"The solution is less expensive than other options."
"The ePoE+ is great."
"I have found the scalability could be improved in the version I was using."
"The management tools are limited in their abilities, and suffer from upgrade problems."
"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."
"They could improve the code, as there are some issues with it."
"Juniper Ethernet Switches' operating systems get corrupted when the power fails. They have to improve this issue. I may have to use a newer version."
"All Juniper documentation is terrible."
"The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable."
"Its scalability can be better. If possible, it can have Hyper POE. I am not sure if there is a fiber version."
"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."
