"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."
"There is no end to the ability to scale Juniper."
"It is easy to configure, and there are three routing switches."
"It's easy to use."
"In terms of performance, Juniper switches have a more user-friendly interface and more features than Cisco products."
"The solution is easy to use and has good integration."
"The solution has a high level of network functionality."
"The thing that sets Juniper apart from most switches is that when you're in the command line and you make a configuration change, you just write the command and then say "commit confirmed minutes". For example, I'm configuring a switch here in my office, which is five miles away, and I say, "commit confirmed 5". If I can't get back to the interface within five minutes to be able to make sure the switch came up, it rolls back to the previous configuration. This way I do not get locked out, or the switch doesn't get messed up because of the incorrect configuration. That's an automatic feature, which is pretty slick. I haven't seen that feature with other vendors that I've worked with. That's probably my most favorite feature."
"Remote access to the router is a huge time saver."
"The solution is less expensive than other options."
"The ePoE+ is great."
"They're easy to update."
"The technical support is quite good."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to segment my infrastructure between phones, security systems, and other tasks."
"We find value in its ability to enable cloud management and visibility. They are also easy to deploy. It's very convenient because you can see who is accessing, what type of UI system they're using, what applications they're using, the bandwidth, and more."
"I have found the solution to be stable."
"We found the initial setup to be easy."
"Setting up a switch can be performed prior to having your hands on the device. Once you purchase a Meraki switch you will get an email from Meraki with a code to add to your dashboard and then you can start setting up your switch so when it arrives it will download its configuration and be all setup."
"The main features of Meraki MS Switches are integration, high quality, and hardware guarantee."
"The upgrading of the system should be simplified and made faster."
"The price is in the intermediate range. It is not overly expensive, but also not cheap. It could stand improvement."
"The stability could be better. We find, for example, Cisco, to be more stable."
"They could improve the code, as there are some issues with it."
"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."
"Juniper's support could be much better and faster."
"The security features for the product should be more unified for the product regardless of the product model."
"You do need to be an IT person in order to handle the initial setup. An AV person would struggle a bit."
"Documentation and access to it could be greatly improved."
"The documentation could be improved; it's quite basic."
"The MS Switches are incapable of doing trunking."
"The price for this product could be cheaper. For a low-budget school or institution, scaling up and implementing more switches could take longer because of budget constraints."
"The cameras should be better integrated."
"We had some dashboard licensing issues, maybe because their method of collecting data from the user needs to be more streamlined."
"The licensing model needs to be improved."
"They tend to have some weird issues with fiber uplinks."
"In my opinion, there's room for improvement cost-wise. With Meraki's licensing terms, you're required to pay an annual licensing fee, which can be for a one-year license or perhaps a five-year license. But if you analyze the costs involved, there are huge expenses incurred as far as the licensing is concerned."
"Technical support hold times seem to be getting longer."
