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

I give a 9 because it's a good price/performance ratio, scalability and easy management. In the past, I've never experienced a switch went bad. The tech support is good. VLAN management is easy.The reason I don't give it a full 10 is because it would be nice if it had more debugging capabilities.

Cons

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.

  • Better advertisement about advanced enterprise features. My experience is with smaller switches and not with the fully managed switches.
  • Additional management tools to monitor multiple switches in the environment. Similar to Cisco Network Assistant.

Support Rating

Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches

Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches 8.1
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.

Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches

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.
