We performed a comparison between Fortinet FortiSwitch - Data Center and Huawei Ethernet 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 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."
"The solution has a high level of network functionality."
"The most valuable feature is switching on our network."
"The solution is easy to use and has good integration."
"Both Juniper and Cisco switches are interoperable."
"The solution is stable and scalable."
"Junos OS is extremely flexible and easy to pick up."
"The performance is very good."
"I have found the solution to be scalable."
"It integrates well."
"A valuable feature of FortiGate is its management integrity."
"An affordable and stable solution for small-medium companies."
"The functionality is basically the same as Cisco."
"Easy to use, flexible, stable, and offers great performance."
"It integrates well."
"The Huawei switches are stable, easy to set up, and cheap."
"It is easy to understand all the features of Huawei Switches."
"I use it on a daily basis and I find it to be quite stable."
"The solution is stable and the performance is good."
"They're straightforward to set up."
"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."
"We are not very pleased with their performance."
"I would like the ability to operate with other operating systems."
"I have found the scalability could be improved in the version I was using."
"The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable."
"The updates are constantly breaking."
"They could improve the code, as there are some issues with it."
"Support could be improved."
"When there are many switches being used, the speed declines noticeably."
"The solution can improve by upgrading QSFP+, it is very limited and must be supported more than it is now. If we need FortiSwitches to support all the QSFP ports our budgets would have to be very large."
"The FortiSwitch product was initially quite complex."
"Does not have as many features as other solutions, such as segmentation and analytics engines."
"Huawei Ethernet Switches are scalable but can be improved."
"We would like to see additional backup solutions, since we have several degrees of backup."
"Devices should have the ability to configure more easily."
"The performance has been slow at times."
"The pricing could always be improved."
"It’s hard to get technical support."
"I didn't like the Huawei Switches because of the different versions resetting the configuration issue. Huawei doesn't support Layer 3 modes while TOE and ARP have some issues."
"The configuration is very difficult even for someone who is already familiar with the configuration process."
Juniper Ethernet Switches are made up of the EX Series product line. These EX Series Ethernet Switches provide branch, campus and data center networks with access, aggregation and core layer switching solutions. The end result is secure, fast and efficient application and data delivery.
Today's enterprise networks increasingly demand mobile access, optimal availability, virtualization, and unified communications. The Juniper Ethernet Switches EX Series caters for all of these requirements, ensuring business continuity, network flexibility and maximum productivity.
With 10 or 40 GE access ports and a high-throughput backbone, FortiSwitch Data Center Switches are ideal for the top-of-rack (ToR) server or firewall-aggregation applications. The high-speed switching fabric is also well suited for enterprise network core or backbone network installations.
