It is less expensive than, for example, Cisco. We pay a yearly licensing fee.

We had a leakage in the support process and decided to end the product's life in order to purchase a new product with support. We did not renew product support as a result.

Juniper's switches have a lifetime warranty, so you don't have to pay for replacements for defective items (though you can't buy spare replacements). It's relatively affordable per switch and pretty similar to other vendors' costs for maintenance.

Juniper Ethernet Switches could be less expensive. There is not a license needed to use the solution.

I believe Juniper is a lot cheaper than Cisco. Their price isn't that high if I recall correctly. I believe it's reasonable compared to Cisco, so I think they are good on the price end.

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.

Their prices are competitive and not bad. It is cheaper than Cisco. We have a yearly license.

The pricing is very aggressive. The only disadvantage with Juniper is the modules are very expensive lately. It could be cheaper, but they are always expensive. If you want support with Juniper you will have to use Juniper modules, otherwise, you don't get the technical support. For example, third-party modules can be integrated into Cisco, but with Juniper, if you want technical support directly, you can only use the Juniper modules. When tech support takes control, they will recognize whether it is a Juniper module or third-party modules. Juniper switches come with either one year, three years, or five years of support. When comparing, Cisco comes with five years.

Juniper is less expensive than competing products and as much as 33% less than Cisco.

The exact licensing is not something I know about, but I do know that Juniper is a less expensive solution when compared to the competition.

Juniper Ethernet switches are more cost-effective than Cisco.

SuhaibKhatib - PeerSpot reviewer

This solution is cheaper than Cisco or HP switches.

The maintenance cost is approximately €2,000 ($2,200 USD) per year, including support, for our entire fleet.

There are different licenses available for these switches that are based on the features. We purchased the box for a one-time charge, and we are paying a yearly support fee of several hundred Euros.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

You don't need to license every switch. We only chose to cover support on core/key equipment and keep a cold spare available when needed.
