Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"As compared to the other major vendors in the SD-WAN market, such as VeloCloud, Cisco, and others, the tunnel-free and secure vector routing technology is its major USP, which gives plenty of room to discuss with the customer why IPSec from 1998 is a bit outdated."

More Juniper Session Smart Router Pros →

"The support is very good from Juniper and from the local distributors.""It gives you that level of visibility to understand what's going on between layer four and layer seven."

More Juniper Contrail SD-WAN Pros →

"One of the most valuable features of this solution is network management. The customer is able to manage their network from home or we can also manage the whole customer network.""It has good reporting and analytics, that most people can understand without too much difficulty."

More Nuage Networks Pros →

Cons
"The UI of the SSR conductor is the main part where improvements can be done. Today, for every configuration step, you have to do a series of clicks. What we are missing there are wizards. For example, I have two applications, and I want one application to be prioritized against the other. In such a case, a wizard for assigning policies to a service without configuring each step by hand would be very helpful. There should be an overhaul of the GUI of the conductor. The functionality they have got in the Mist portal should be baked into the conductor itself. It would be really great, but as we all know, that won't happen."

"The training could be better. When it comes to the demo dashboard capability, I feel like it could be much easier for our customers to use. Our last customer complained about this.""The solution installs similarly to competitors. It is not more difficult or easier. However, it could be easier and take less time for the installation."

"Security is an area that could use some work."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We are currently renegotiating the offer for the licenses and the license bundle model. The license for an ISP has to be different from the license for an end customer. This is something we are currently renegotiating with Juniper, but, of course, the pricing for the licensing is always an issue when you want to get more customers."
  • More Juniper Session Smart Router Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The licensing structure is very flexible."
  • "The cost of the solution is a little expensive. The hardware is a one-time purchase fee and the software is purchased on an annual basis. There are additional costs for other software features that are available which are on an annual basis, such as extra capacity."
  • More Juniper Contrail SD-WAN Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The price of the solution could be more affordable. Customers want to use their own cheap connection and also do not want to pay too much for services from this solution, it becomes too expensive."
  • "I would say, from our cost perspective, they are extremely competitive."
