Cisco 5000 Series Enterprise Network Compute System (ENCS 5000)

It seems to me that it is a piece of equipment totally suitable for virtualization, it works perfectly either as an ISR or as an ASA Firewall. This 5000 series of equipment is a platform that is specifically designed and oriented to run VNF. This saves time and at the same time allows us to simplify operations.

Juniper Enterprise Routers

As an edge/WAN router that contains internet BGP routes, it handles this work very well. And the devices are robust, able to manage a significant load. However, the interface cost can be somewhat of a hindrance when wanting to use it to interconnect many metro clients.

Juniper support is friendly, easy to understand, widely knowledgeable, and easy to get ahold of. I did not give them a higher rating as some of my more complex issues, were solved by myself while under consultation from Juniper TAC.

Both products are great, even the CLI is very alike in both products. We chose Juniper for its reliability and support.
