"The updates are constantly breaking.""EX switches take too long to boot when we restart them for maintenance. We need to minimize downtime. Another issue is the command line interface. Juniper's commands are different from other switches, so it's hard to remember them.""You need to make a few local configurations to work with the solution. We have faced issues with the tool's stability.""The price could be a bit lower.""The stability could be better. We find, for example, Cisco, to be more stable.""Juniper Ethernet Switches could improve in the EX 2300 model because it does not support IPsec VPN. Only the models at 3400 or higher support it. Additionally, there is a need for support for Mac which is lacking. Some of their competitors, such as Cisco, support Mac.""The operating system could be better.""Jupiter Switches' configuration is a little difficult to understand."
