We performed a comparison between Fortinet FortiSwitch - Data Center 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.
"The Juniper Ethernet switch feature I find the most valuable is reliability."
"It is stable."
"I like the simplicity of it."
"I like that it's fairly easy to implement these ethernet switches."
"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."
"Juniper Switches' best feature is its flexibility."
"One of the most valuable features of Juniper Ethernet Switches is they are rugged."
"The solution is stable and scalable."
"An affordable and stable solution for small-medium companies."
"It integrates well."
"A valuable feature of FortiGate is its management integrity."
"I have found the solution to be scalable."
"This solution is very similar to the on-premises version making it easy to use for those who know the architect."
"The interface management and the user access management is pretty good."
"The beauty of MikroTik is that you have flexibility with the routing parts."
"Some of the most valuable features are the simplicity, cost, usability, and power. As a package, it's extremely effective."
"It is user-friendly, reliable, and cheap."
"The performance has been good."
"It is easy to set up."
"The initial setup is easy."
"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."
"The updates are constantly breaking."
"Juniper Ethernet Switches would be improved by upgrading the uplink port in EX2300 categories service from 10G to 25G."
"More security could be provided, especially with the rising cyber-attacks in business organizations."
"We would like it if there was more security added in future releases."
"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 stability could be better. We find, for example, Cisco, to be more stable."
"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."
"The initial setup is complex."
"The user interface could improve and they should allow a license for IBS."
"Technical support could be better."
"The solution does not yet offer a SaaS 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 bulk efficiencies and the control of traffic could be a bit better."
"The port isolation and VLAN need to be improved."
"The packet filtering, user log data, and user access log could all be improved."
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.
