We performed a comparison between Extreme VDX and MikroTik Cloud Router Switch 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.
"Juniper Switches' best feature is its flexibility."
"The solution is easy to use and has good integration."
"The solution is stable and scalable."
"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."
"In terms of performance, Juniper switches have a more user-friendly interface and more features than Cisco products."
"I like that it's fairly easy to implement these ethernet switches."
"One of the most valuable features of Juniper Ethernet Switches is they are rugged."
"The solution is certainly scalable."
"Its simplicity and web interface were most valuable. I also liked the two-factor authentication."
"The GUI is easy to use."
"The initial setup is easy."
"It is user-friendly, reliable, and cheap."
"The beauty of MikroTik is that you have flexibility with the routing parts."
"The interface management and the user access management is pretty good."
"The performance has been good."
"It is easy to set up."
"This solution is very similar to the on-premises version making it easy to use for those who know the architect."
"The management tools are limited in their abilities, and suffer from upgrade problems."
"The packet channelizing feature should be improved."
"The Virtual Chassis Fabric is kind of complicated to troubleshoot sometimes. On the MPLS side, they're good — they're fine for the pseudo-wires and stuff—but they need more work on the LAN. It is difficult to troubleshoot their LAN technologies like Virtual Chassis."
"The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable."
"The interface could be better. It needs improvement."
"Wireless and monitoring definitely could be improved."
"I would like the ability to operate with other operating systems."
"Its distribution channel and the ease of availability should be improved."
"Its scalability can be better. If possible, it can have Hyper POE. I am not sure if there is a fiber version."
"Stuff that I'd like to be improved is really just training and documentation because I think the feature set is full. Another improvement I'd suggest is that their new, bigger releases should be a bit more stable."
"The packet filtering, user log data, and user access log could all be improved."
"It happens that you may find your network is down, if you reboot the switch, they come up. However, sometimes, they reset themselves. That's a big issue."
"The bulk efficiencies and the control of traffic could be a bit better."
"If MikroTik had a marketing team and support team in India then it would be much easier for us to get the product, as well as support."
"Technical support could be better."
"The user interface could improve and they should allow a license for IBS."
"The solution does not yet offer a SaaS version."
