Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It's stable and reliable.""One of the most valuable features of Juniper Ethernet Switches is they are rugged.""The feature I like the most is the ability to reword changes before committing to the change. We can always reword changes in 10 minutes if they don't work.""It is stable.""Both Juniper and Cisco switches are interoperable.""The solution is certainly scalable.""It is very valuable for SRX devices and we have found it very easy to configure.""The most valuable feature is that Juniper is multiple kernels, so there's isolation, which means you won't get a process that runs away, creating problems across the whole platform."

"The ePoE+ is great.""Remote access to the router is a huge time saver.""The solution is less expensive than other options."

More Luxul Switches Pros →

"Because it's a managed switch, I have the ability to set controls and configure traffic priorities, VLAN ports, etc.""I would gladly recommend Ubiquiti UniFi Switches.""The two most valuable features are the remote access user and the side-to-side connection.""Overall the solution functions very well.""The value here with using the Ubiquiti products across the board is that they're almost all single-pane management and the single-pane management is included. It's a huge benefit.""The user interface makes it simple to configure and manage.""I haven't found the cost of the solution to be too high.""Ubiquiti's network management and the way you can manage many different devices on a network are really nice."

Cons
"The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable.""The operating system could be better.""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.""The only issue that we have with Juniper Ethernet Switches is the firmware because it is not stable.""Juniper Ethernet Switches would be improved by upgrading the uplink port in EX2300 categories service from 10G to 25G.""They could improve the code, as there are some issues with it.""I have found the scalability could be improved in the version I was using."

More Juniper Ethernet Switches Cons →

"You do need to be an IT person in order to handle the initial setup. An AV person would struggle a bit.""The documentation could be improved; it's quite basic.""Documentation and access to it could be greatly improved."

More Luxul Switches Cons →

"This brand is not very popular in China.""It would be nice if there was a way to label all of the ports on it so that I could include information about where the various connections go.""It would be beneficial for us if Ubiquiti had a team of advanced data transportation specialists that we could get feedback from. We are not experts in data transportation, so having this sort of resource would be helpful for us.""Most configuration can be done on the GUI but sometimes you have to go under the hood and tweak on the CLI.""The price could be lower.""Ubiquiti tends to end-of-life things faster than other companies do. Cisco tends to be in the 8-, 10-, 12-year time frame, and Ubiquiti tends to be in the 4- or 5-year time frame.""I think they need to provide a better firewall solution.""I'd like there to be better reporting for the solution."

    Reviews from Real Users

    A PeerSpot user who is a Director of Technical Operations/CTO at a consultancy says "The ability to deploy quickly and then having one central location for all the settings are its most valuable aspects."

    "The integration with the controller is one of the most valuable features of these switches. They are also very stable. For example, we have some equipment that we haven't touched for four years that is still reliable," says Doru I., Senior solutions architect at Aplix Technologies

    Murali S., Management Consultant at a consultancy, explains that “For the world where you have to balance traffic and traffic loads and bandwidth, their GUI makes it really easy because the switches, though they are enterprise grade level two or level three switches, the GUI is designed so that it's easy to set up VLANs where you need to control your traffic so that your phones don't break up and get choppy because of other people loading the network down too heavily."
