Juniper Ethernet Switches Primary Use Case

MN

We use it across our whole environment. We use it for everything from our core to our edge. It is basically deployed everywhere. A good percentage of our Juniper switches are in a stacked array. For example, we do four 48-port switches for a wiring closet in a building. They're all stacked together, and they call it ActivChassis. Most companies, such as HP, ADTRAN, also do the same kind of thing. So, we do a virtual chassis formation in our wiring closet. For smaller buildings that only need one switch, we do a single switch at the distant end.

We have a lot from the 2300 Series. We have one 3300 and quite a few from the 3400 Series. We also have one 4550, and we have also been buying the 4350 series ones.

We primarily use the solution for the core environment and not in the access environment.

Our primary use case for this solution is deploying and maintaining network environments. For example, one of our major clients is the leading telecommunication provider in Africa and uses a lot of Juniper devices as part of a core network. We deploy this solution on-premises.

We still use the solution as a legacy network just for a core switch. It's for the ISP.

We use Juniper Ethernet switches to connect to other switches and computers.

We are a public service company providing the backbone network for our country. We have the highest level of concentration. We provide our services to some 45 other big operators because we are a carrier's carrier. Not all of this is on one switch as our network stretches across three countries and five cities. We have 12 data centers and not all of them use Juniper switches. We use Juniper switches in two central data centers, to which we connected 12 customers and 20 backbone instances.

Juniper Ethernet Switches are used in data centers, corporate offices, branch offices, factory environments, and business ops part of the factory environments. 

Wherever there are wireless networks we use the Cisco Meraki's and Arubas. Wherever there are firewalls, we use the Check Points, Cisco ASAs, FortiGate, and Juniper.
