Cons
"When there are many switches being used, the speed declines noticeably.""Does not have as many features as other solutions, such as segmentation and analytics engines.""The solution can improve by upgrading QSFP+, it is very limited and must be supported more than it is now.

More Fortinet FortiSwitch - Data Center Cons →

"All Juniper documentation is terrible.""Wireless and monitoring definitely could be improved.""The updates are constantly breaking.""More security could be provided, especially with the rising cyber-attacks in business organizations.""The difficulty of the installation of Juniper Ethernet Switches depends on the environment it is being implemented in. It is fairly straightforward in terms of being able to source the technical information as we need it. However, this process could improve.""Jupiter Switches' configuration is a little difficult to understand.""Stability could be better, especially during a reboot. We have had some issues recently with the software getting corrupt on reboot, which causes a lot of downtime.""They could improve the code, as there are some issues with it."
