Integrates well, easy to use, helpful support
Pros and Cons
  • "The solution is easy to use and has good integration."
  • "In an upcoming release, Juniper Ethernet Switches could improve by having more microservices."

What is most valuable?

The solution is easy to use and has good integration.

What needs improvement?

In an upcoming release, Juniper Ethernet Switches could improve by having more microservices.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Juniper Ethernet Switches for approximately 10 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability depends on the environment. For example, if the customer is in a healthcare environment then it is more scalable than other solutions.

We have approximately 30 large customers using this solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is very good. We can talk and have the support of the engineers who are developing the software and features.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We use many other switches, such as Aruba, Hewlett Packard, and Extreme Networks.

How was the initial setup?

The installation is easy if you have certified engineers. You have to have some basic knowledge about the CLI of Juniper to do the installation.

What about the implementation team?

The size of the team needed for the installation depends on the environment. However, we have approximately 10 certified engineers, which can do both, the installations and support of the solution. Additionally, we have architects, junior and senior consultants, and depending on the job we have to do, we can supply different types of engineers.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We have a partnership with Juniper and the price of the solution can be negotiated at a local or a corporate level with Juniper to meet our customer's needs.

There is a subscription payment model or you can purchase licenses on a one, two, and five-year basis. If you want decent support, the solution is not expensive.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Juniper Ethernet Switches to others who want a well-integrated, stable, and easy-to-use solution.

I rate Juniper Ethernet Switches a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

Good bandwidth, well suited for small locations
Pros and Cons
  • "These routers and switches are very stable."
  • "This product could offer better integration with VPNs."

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and we focus on integrating and monitoring critical infrastructure. We offer many products to our clients for Wi-Fi, switching, cabling, and monitoring. We also offer sensors and other devices in our portfolio. 

We implement MikroTik Routers and Switches for small locations.

How has it helped my organization?

Our clients in Bolivia have very basic security, so the firewall features provided by our solutions are helpful.

What is most valuable?

This product is very good in terms of bandwidth.

What needs improvement?

This product could offer better integration with VPNs. We have a SOC for network monitoring and all of our clients are connected to it. Through the SOC, we integrate our clients with our VPN.

The switching capabilities could be improved. These devices have a lot of potential but need to improve first.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with MikroTik Routers and Switches for approximately three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

These routers and switches are very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability-wise, these products are good.

We use MikroTik products for small locations. We sometimes only put one or two devices in a location, depending on the industry and the bandwidth requirements.

We have between 20 and 25 devices installed with four clients.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We work with products from several vendors including Check Point, Extreme Networks, and occasionally Cisco.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
