I like the performance of this platform around the establishment of digital operation space. It has enabled our IT team to build an interactive base that links our marketing team to our potential customers. The cost of creating the networking system is lower as compared to most upcoming platforms. I can totally recommend this product to any business organization for reliable networking systems. It has successfully connected our business to cloud networking services.

Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches

They work great as core switches, data center switches, top of rack switches. They can even serve as routers, their routing capability is great, except for where you need lots of routing processing power. I would not use many of them for branch office switches though, due to noise and slowness of bootup

Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches

  • Virtual chassis new switch has overwritten existing config if not performed in a particular way.
  • Applying a configuration to a range of interfaces could be done in a better way.
  • Applying firewall rules to multiple security zones could be done a little more efficiently.

Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches

Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches 8.2
Based on 7 answers
Many times when contacting Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches support, it seems that it is easiest for support to recommend a straight replacement (RMA) instead of taking time to walk through a solution on the faulty system. We find we get better help from a third-party consulting firm that has Juniper certified technicians or professionals on staff. They take the time to explain processes and workflow, which Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches support seems to shy away from.

The rollback, commit and confirm are the biggest players in the game. Juniper is the only one who has those features, so I believe they have a leg up in the game. The CLI is one of the easiest to work with.
