D-Link Ethernet Switches

D-Link Ethernet Switches, in my opinion, are extremely suited for education or business looking for a top grade network but are on a very tight budget. You get a great product with a great warranty for little of the cost. Customer support is great. Less appropriate would be an industry that just has an abundance of resource and don't care about saving money. Then go with Cisco. Just because of the brand name, not performance. Maybe another would be in your home. Don't need this if all you need is a Wifi Router.

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

D-Link Ethernet Switches

Cons

D-Link Ethernet Switches

  • Web interfaces. Really need to work on easier web interfacing for less "program savvy" users.
  • Needs a WAY BETTER management solution. This is where you can take one piece of software and manage every switch.
  • Maybe and this is stretching, an easier way to keep up with firmware and uploading them.

Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches

  • J-Web web UI is not as easy to navigate as the JunOS command line.
  • Interface identifiers (GE-0/0/0, GE-0/1/0, GE-0/2/0) with ports/modules can be inconsistent from front to the back of switches.

The best in the business but not perfect. The rollback and commit features are the best-seller.

Alternatives Considered

D-Link Ethernet Switches

They stack up great. In performance, Price, Physical style. I have been around many networks with a business that has spent three times as much on a network solution and Dlink matches up toe to toe. Has of now they are moving over to Cisco language. So this will improve the availability of engineers and support.

Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches

  • Cisco: expensive, cluttered list of models, expensive (and poor) support, OS is different across platforms, difficult to manage, no commit/confirm/rollback
  • Ubiquiti: inexpensive, basically no proper support (community support only)
  • Brocade: OS is Cisco-wannabe (with all of the bad), company has been broken up so support is questionable.
Juniper: obvious choice

Return on Investment

D-Link Ethernet Switches

  • Positive: Better and reliable network
  • Positive: Up time has been GREAT. Don't have to restart switches almost at all.
  • Positive: Saved us large amount of money.

Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches

  • Definitely helped for rapid network replacement, we were able to build data centers in a matter of weeks
  • Return on investment is greatest for data centers, as the commit confirmed feature reduces the need to go on site for making some changes
  • Flexibility of stacking is is another feature that makes ROI more positive
